Cooking Lessons

By Kristin

While staying at my cousin Conrad and Celi’s house,  I asked Celi to give me some asian cooking lessons.  Celi is from the Philippines and has lived all over the world. She is an amazing cook!

I think it’s important to learn about my daughter’s culture, and food is a great place to start.  Just as my German family goes crazy for sauerkraut and dumplings, I want my daughter excited to make gyoza (asian dumplings).  I love the idea that cooking together can help us bond and keep her in touch with her culture.

 Celi’s well known in our family for her lumpia (the Philippine version of an egg roll).  They are soooo good!!!

Exploring the asian market.  We had so much fun looking at all the different foods and it was so nice having Celi there to explain a few things.
