Vanessa is our Filipino cook who prepares delicious, traditional dishes from her home.

Her main culinary influence is her aunt who raised Vanessa in a place where the kitchen was the heart of the home. Her aunt taught Vanessa to collect ingredients from their abundant garden, as well as how to grow them.  She also taught her which spices were good, how to use them and where to find them.  Sourcing beautiful seasonal food from their local environment was an automatic part of life for Vanessa growing up.
