Cooking with Lola Jayme-Behind the Blog

If you have been keeping up with my posts, you might find yourself thinking, “Why did she start this blog?” To answer that important question, it is important for me to start by saying that growing up in a Filipino household, I watched my grandmother cook in the kitchen with such finesse as if it is poetry in motion.  As I got older, she taught me the life-long values of how to cook Filipino dishes and not to be afraid of trying new things. I have several memories of cooking with my grandma that also remind me of the life lessons she taught me just by cooking with her. Throughout her life,  she recorded traditional filipino recipes and recipes of her own to share with her family. She emphasized the importance of our culture through generaprofile_with_watermarktion to generation.

My mission with this blog is to share the Filipino culture through food, as well as share some of my childhood memories for the foodies of all foodies. Cooking my way through each recipe from my grandmother’s cookbook and creating my own recipes along the way is my way of continuing to practice everything my grandmother taught me and to keep her memory alive. I will be documenting my cooking journey, so that you can come along with me. This blog and my experiences writing the recipes will continue to be a  journey to tell her stories, my memories, and my culture through food.

Can’t wait to take you on this adventure with me!
