FilipinoChow.com is the culmination of a collaborative effort between the founders of this food blog and it’s dedicated team of contributors. We strive to provide the most accurate and up-to-date information in the culinary world through tireless research and development as well as through practicing our cooking skills.
The beginning of the FilipinoChow.com website has it’s roots many years ago in the youth of the founders and contributors of this organization. Although we all come from different parts of the world and didn’t grow up together or know each other until later in life, we all still have one thing in common. When we all were growing up, there was one thing that all our families shared as a core element of what it meant to be a part of and participate in our families. That is cooking. And not just simply cooking itself but cooking together as a family. Cooking has been a family tradition in all of the lives.
The Early Years
The seeds of what would become FilipinoChow.com were sown when we as children were brought up in the kitchen preparing the meals of our lives with our mothers and fathers, aunts and uncles, and grandparents. Being in the kitchen on the morning or afternoon before a big holiday or family gathering helping to prepare the coming feast was commonplace in our household. Although this was considered to be an annoying task to perform when we were children, as we grew older a love for food preparation was born because of the time that you get to spend with your family when you are there in the kitchen preparing a meal together.
