Ginger Delegation

It’s been a very busy few days–between construction work at home, farm, commercial food photoshoots, and a visit from the Ginger delegation–people who are experts in growing ginger.  Of course, I made lunch and just made the best of what we got in the backyard–practically.  Just let me know if anyone’s interested in the recipe of these items.

Things are coming along  just fine.  I’m here in the Philippines for a reason and it’s now slowly unfolding.  Ecstatic, anxious and excited, there’s so much work ahead, good for the mind, body and spirit.  Cheers to a bright, gingery future!

    Just found your blog through a link on the savorfilipino site. Happy to read about your return to the Philippines as my American husband and I are planning the same – to Negros near Bacolod. He’s a self-taught chef and will try to adapt local ingredients to his Spanish/French/Italian techniques. Please share your menu recipes with me – I am drooling over your luscious photography. I’ll definitely follow your blog! Angela (Berkeley, CA)
