We’re in the midst of a massive house renovation and we’re KonMarie decluttering: what do you do with old books? Can you bear to part with them? The joy of reading I’ve been buying books since I was a child. I got that from my mother. I couldn’t enter a bookstore without buying anything. When …

Asian rice porridge, or congee, can be cooked with water or broth. It may be thick or thin. The rice grains may still be visible or not. Meat, seafood, seasonings and garnish may be placed on top or served on the side. All that may sound strange to people who have only tried one kind …

I grew up with the superstition that the appearance of swarms of gamo-gamo (antflies) means impending rain. Today, I know better. The flying insects may not be gamo-gamo at all but, rather, flying termites. And their appearance signal the presence of termite colonies in the house. What are termites anyway?

Plans for a new series of cooking lessons over the summer take a back seat as we struggle to survive a waterless summer. Yes, there is a water crisis. But whether it’s natural or manmade, I am not sure. It’s summer in the entire country but only Manila and the province of Rizal areas are …

The flavor is in the bones. I always say that. Yet, you can’t make me eat bangus (milkfish) these days that hasn’t been deboned. I’ve had enough of that hardship as a child when boneless bangus was not the norm. Today, boneless bangus is everywhere. Seasoned, unseasoned, belly only, back fillets only or the whole …
