Hello. Kumusta kayo. I am Noemi Lardizabal-Dado. Welcome to my Pinoy Food Blog.
Would you believe that I learned to cook my very first dish when I was 21 years old? Even if I graduated with a degree of BS Food technology at the University of the Philippines, it didn’t mean I was an experienced cook. But see, if one is exposed to good food, it’s easy to cook.
I learned to bake before I cooked. I learned how to bake in my mom’s bakeshop, Sally’s Bake Shop which was based in Cebu. I grew up smelling the sweet aroma of freshly baked cakes and bread as early as 9 years old. My early memories of our bakeshop centered on kakanin which you will also find here in this blog.
Here you will find dishes that my family and I cook during weekends or on special occasions. I cook special dishes only during birthday celebrations. That’s what happens when you train your maid to cook then she ends up better than you. It’s my husband Butch that often does the cooking these days. My two girls like to cook when they find an interesting dish to experiment on. In this blog, expect only simple dishes. I avoid gourmet cooking because I don’t have the inclination and time to prepare them unless of course, the occasion is a birthday or anniversary dinner celebration.
