"I threw a “Filipinx garage party” in LA last month, and got to share a boatload of recipes for friends inspired by Filipinx dishes I had at growing up in the Bay Area where the parties never ended and the food was always the best. Now these dishes are inspired by Haitian, Iranian, Singaporean cuisine but also hammams, my friends, and the eucalyptus tree in my backyard growing up"
Recipes include Banana-Leaf Grilled Fish, Salted Bitter Melon & Green Tomatoes, Hammam Bay Leaf Rice, Charred Creamy Eggplant, and more!
