We’re in the midst of a massive house renovation and we’re KonMarie decluttering: what do you do with old books? Can you bear to part with them? The joy of reading I’ve been buying books since I was a child. I got that from my mother. I couldn’t enter a bookstore without buying anything. When …

How to Cook Congee (Rice Porridge) Minus the Myths appeared first on CASA Veneracion

Asian rice porridge, or congee, can be cooked with water or broth. It may be thick or thin. The rice grains may still be visible or not. Meat, seafood, seasonings and garnish may be placed on top or served on the side. All that may sound strange to people who have only tried one kind …

Swarms of Flying Termites a Sign of Home Infestation appeared first on CASA Veneracion

I grew up with the superstition that the appearance of swarms of gamo-gamo (antflies) means impending rain. Today, I know better. The flying insects may not be gamo-gamo at all but, rather, flying termites. And their appearance signal the presence of termite colonies in the house. What are termites anyway? I’m no science nerd but …

Plans for a new series of cooking lessons over the summer take a back seat as we struggle to survive a waterless summer. Yes, there is a water crisis. But whether it’s natural or manmade, I am not sure. It’s summer in the entire country but only Manila and the province of Rizal areas are …

Boneless Bangus Belly Sinigang appeared first on CASA Veneracion

The flavor is in the bones. I always say that. Yet, you can’t make me eat bangus (milkfish) these days that hasn’t been deboned. I’ve had enough of that hardship as a child when boneless bangus was not the norm. Today, boneless bangus is everywhere. Seasoned, unseasoned, belly only, back fillets only or the whole …

Duck Binakol: You’ll Never Go Back to Chicken appeared first on CASA Veneracion

Stay away, purists! I created a twist on a Filipino classic and the hack is richer and tastier than the original. We adore chicken binakol at home but once you’ve tried duck binakol, it will be hard to go back to the traditional. The duck binakol happened while trying to think hard about what to …

How to Cook, Lesson 10: Exploring Cuisines appeared first on CASA Veneracion

Nothing beats comfort food. That is a fact. But because we associate food with pleasant memories, our definition of “good food” is often subjective. But for some of us — for those of us who want to try to transcend the subjectivity — we aim to go beyond comfort food and explore the unfamiliar. For …

How to Cook, Lesson 9: Reheating and Recycling Leftovers appeared first on CASA Veneracion

It rarely happens that the food cooked for a meal is exactly enough. Sometimes, there’s a bit too little that leaves everyone wanting more. And there are times when there’s too much. Leftovers are a constant reality. And their storage can create a build-up. One container here and another one container there… in a week, …

How to Cook, Lesson 8: Creative Cookery (a.k.a. Cooking With No Recipes) appeared first on CASA Veneracion

One evening years ago, my brother-in-law and his girlfriend came over for dinner. It was impromptu. They called up at 4.00 p.m., said they’re arriving at around 6.00 p.m. and that left me no time to go shopping for ingredients. Still, they loved the dishes I prepared, the main dish especially, and it prompted my …
