Meet Stella

I am NOT a formally trained cook. I learned how to cook by watching my dad, my uncle and aunts cook and none of them used measuring tools. I have been cooking since I was 12 (possibly younger). Like the rest of my family, I don’t measure ingredients. My cooking is highly influenced by Philippine Cuisine because I grew up in Manila and I am Filipino. I will cook anything my heart desires but I will keep ingredient costs to a minimum because I am out to prove that eating well does not mean spending a lot of money.

Now that I live in New York City, I am forced to make adjustments to the dishes that I make based on availability and my laziness. I am lucky to reside in the borough of Queens and my proximity to ethnic markets is at the very least, 5 minutes away. WALKING.

I love food and I will taste anything once, without question. Except live insects.

I also contribute to Queenslove, the community blog that is about the borough of Queens.
