Hi, My name is Babes and I manage the website Pinoy Food Express, sort of — with the help of my husband.
Ever since I was a kid, I am fond of cooking, having learned the skills from my grandma and mother. I used to help prepare ingredients by chopping onions or cleaning prawns. Later on, I tried doing it myself, helping my mother manage her small carinderia in Davao City. I often prepare local delicacies like pancit, lumpia, dinuguan, pinakbet and other favorite dishes. I am also fond of preparing Filipino desserts like gulaman, ice candy, buko and fruit juices, an easy preparation since we live close to fruit trees and other sources of ingredients.
I moved to Hong Kong seven years ago and used to work as a cook for Chinese dishes. No wonder you’ll find that some of the recipes included in this website are from Chinese preparations. I do hope that you find these recipes useful in preparing for your next meals.
You’ll also find guides on Filipino food such as our cooking methods, what we usually serve during lunch or meaning of terms used in cooking instructions. What’s more, this website is organized so it is possible to find recipes based on ingredients like broccoli, pork belly or corn flour. You can use the search engine found on upper right part of every page if you’re looking for recipes, tips or ingredients. If you have questions, you can leave comments and I’ll try to respond to them as soon as I can.
Happy cooking, and remember to smile to bring out delicious menus!
