Thanksgiving weekend has grown to be a big weekend for me.  It is that time of year that I pull out all the stops and cook a whirlwind for my family and friends here in Toronto. I have embraced this Canadian tradition and made it my own. I came from a family that gathers around […]

With me running around, trying to set up things for my upcoming exhibition, Catalonia Castellers, I have pangs of homesickness for Barcelona now and then.  There are a lot of things I love about Barcelona and of course that includes its food.  Last Wednesday was one day where the craving was bad.  Lately, there have […]

November 10, 2013


Through following one of my favorite foodies, Alexa Clark, I got in CUTCO‘s Sharpen Your Knife Skills event last Wednesday.  Set-up in a classroom-setting, the affair was brimming with foodies eager to learn proper and practical techniques of how to use and care of knives.  While I am a big fan of cooking and fussing […]

Aunties And Uncles After Abe’s BreakfastTV Stint

June 25, 2013


Today my day started really early.  My EyeCandyTO partner, Abe, landed a cooking demo on CityTV’s Breakfast TV and they wanted him ready in the studio by 6:30am.  To us, it meant that I have to rise by 4:00am (My brain is always slow to start.  I generally have to idle for 30 minutes before […]

White Squirrel

June 23, 2013


One of my guilty pleasures was to constantly snack.  I grew up snacking as street food was so available and cheap in the streets of Manila.  It was one of the things I miss when I moved to Toronto.  But it seems to me that Toronto is finally catching up to that way of eating.  […]

May 12, 2013


One of the invitations I attended recently was the launch of SodaStream Kraft Flavours.  Most of my friends would know how attached I am to my cola.  So when I saw what SodaStream was all about, I could not resist checking them out.  SodaStream is essentially a home-soda maker and they have a variety of […]

A Night at the Dish Cooking Studio with Abe

November 3, 2012


I have met my EyeCandyTO partner Abraham Wornovitzky about 3 years ago in a one-week intensive food styling course  at George Brown College.  Back then I thought it would be useful for me to enroll for the course to understand a food stylist’s perspective.  I thought it would make me a better photographer to understand the […]
