I started this blog because, well, I could deny it no longer. I knew that my love of food had to have an outlet. I don’t really know if I’m going to be good enough to join Masterchef or the Great British Bake Off (although in my heart of hearts, that is the dream!), but I thought I’d write down my thoughts on food and the preparation of it.
My fondest memories are, unsurprisingly, food-related. When I want comfort, I head to my kitchen and prepare something warm and comforting — savoury or sweet. These dishes more often than not evoke memories of when I didn’t make them, when someone else made the dishes for me. This was why I decided to write things down. I called it my book project. I wanted to write down the stories of the people who touched my life through the most nourishing of experiences, food. While the desire is to publish my collection of food stories, I don’t know if that’s ever going to happen. But writing the blog is also my journey to completing my book project. I am determined to pay tribute to the people who have touched my life through food!
It has also been a cherished goal to get people to make Filipino dishes, because, frankly, and this is a fairly biased point of view, Filipino food absolutely rocks! I want to add my voice to those wonderful Filipino food bloggers who already wax poetic about the wonderful recipes that come from the glorious islands of the Philippines. I am proud of my heritage and am very definitely proud of the food that we Filipinos serve on a daily basis!
Welcome to my kitchen and and my extraordinarily ordinary life!
