The Lost Recipe (TLR) is proving it is indeed the new taste of Pinoy drama that viewers are craving for as it continues its strong showing since its launch last January 18.

The Mikee Quintos-Kelvin Miranda starrer posted solid numbers week-on-week with an average NUTAM people audience share of 8.6 percent based on Nielsen Phils. TAM’s January 18 to February 26 data. This was more than double the rating performance of its TV5 counterpart.

Mikee admits she is overwhelmed by the viewers’ warm reception towards the show, especially her loveteam with Kelvin. “Nakakataba po ng puso makitang kinikilig ang viewers! I enjoy watching their reactions while they watch our show. Pati ako kinikilig dahil sa kilig nila!,” she shares.

Kelvin, likewise, appreciates the feedback they’ve been getting since day one. “Masaya po ako at talagang nakakagulat ang suporta ng mga tao sa materyal na inihain namin sa kanila. [Ako ay] Lubos na nagpapasalamat at sana’y patuloy na suportahan [nila] kami hanggang sa dulo.”

Also a big hit among netizens, the story of Chef Harvey (Kelvin) and Apple (Mikee) constantly lands on the list of trending topics on social media. Its official Facebook page (@TheLostRecipeGTV) has recently hit more than 100,000 followers, with the number continuing to increase.

From the stunning visuals that help highlight the elements of time-travel and culinary arts, to the chemistry between Harvey and Apple and various conflicts among the rest of the characters set in a non-linear story-telling–The Lost Recipe provides a fresh offering in today’s local TV landscape.

“Maraming salamat sa oras at pagmamahal na binibigay niyo para panoorin ang The Lost Recipe!,” Mikee enthuses further. “Sana patuloy niyo pong mahalin si Apple, Harvey, at ibang characters para patuloy din naming mapabusog ang mga puso ninyo!”

“Nawawala ang pagod namin kapag nararamdaman namin na masaya kayo sa bawat episode,” Kelvin tells TLR supporters. “Sana sa simpleng paraan po ng pagkukuwento namin ay naiintindihan niyo ang bawat emosyon at maka relate sa mga karunungang hatid ng aming istorya. Maraming maraming salamat po sa inyong lahat! God Bless you all.”

Now that H&B was forced to close down, Apple, Harvey, and the rest of the H&B gang are set to open a food truck, thanks to Frank’s (Paul Salas) help. Will they still be able to redeem themselves? Will Apple discover Frank’s growing feeling for her or will she find herself getting closer to Harvey?

While Ginger’s (Thea Tolentino) business rival has yet to recover from slump, she still can’t be complacent especially with her mom Hazel (Almira Mulach) breathing down her neck. What is the deal with Hazel that she wants to cannibalize the restaurant industry? Will Ginger finally get her mom’s approval?

The plot further thickens as more light is shed on the agency in charge of time travelling where Dulce (Kim Rodriguez) apparently belongs. But while she was on vacation, a glitch on the timelines has been causing havoc to the agency and to the people who have been given the chance to travel in time—including Harvey. Now Father Time (Ahron Villena) and the rest of the agency must work hard to prevent a person from being erased in history—permanently.

The Lost Recipe also features Lucho Ayala, Maureen Larrazabal, Almira Muhlach, Sue Prado, Topper Fabregas, and Ariella Arida. Joining Harvey and Apple in their kitchen adventure as well are Phytos Ramirez, Prince Clemente, Anton Amoncio, Faye Lorenzo, and Crystal Paras.

Catch “The Lost Recipe,” weeknights at 8 p.m. on GTV.
