Having spent only the first six years of my life in the Philippines and now living in London I’ve had the desire to explore my culture through learning more things about my favourite dishes. Adobo is quite a simple dish to prepare but through my mother I learnt that some of the ingredients she uses are not used in all of the regions of the Philippines. My artwork illustrates a recipe past down from my grandmother to my mother and then to me.
Pulses are a plus for all. They’re a perfect match for your whole body. What makes beans so cool? Let’s hear it straight from the bean “bachelors.” They’re great for your heart, nutrient-rich and a great source of protein!
In a small village where they forgot to paving the road with asphalt, there was a free spirit girl singing for her donkey letting the time pass selling her dry beans!
Would you buy my beans today sir!?...
A round pool full of happy little chubbies swimming.
Summer was, all through my childhood, spending time at Grandma's house.
My grandmother, an excellent cook, always prepared the best complete menu for the whole family. Starter, main course, and a delicious dessert. My goodness! My grandmother's homemade ice cream... (but that's another story).
Anyway, no matter what the menu of the day was, always at Grandma's house, you would find the same appetizer: beans in oil.
My grandmother used to serve the beans in oil in an old round ceramic casserole barely blue. It had a small broken grimace, where my grandmother would put a spoon in exactly the same way so that nobody would notice the breakage.
As soon as the pot was placed in the centre of the table, the fantasy began, the pool opened its doors crowded with happy little Chubbies swimming away one by one.
Baked beans are one of my favourite comfort foods. In Eastern Canada, a traditional winter activity is to visit a "cabane à sucre", or sugar shack where they produce maple syrup. Part of the experience is a meal where foods like sausages, eggs, pancakes and baked beans are enjoyed in a communal setting! Traditionally, these beans are baked with lard but this recipe is vegetarian for all to enjoy!
A visual guide to the creation of a mean bean burger featuring some legendary legumes--black beans and chickpeas/garbanzo beans. Cook, mash, and bind with an egg and panko, and season to your taste! My go-to includes garlic, onions, Italian seasoning, Worcestershire sauce, and sriracha--but go nuts. Or beans. Go beans.
The following Illustrated recipe is a tribute to Grandma and her love for cooking. This is also a tribute to all the love grandma's dedicate towards their grandchildren. This recipe is one of the best recipes that come from North Indian cuisine and one of my personal favorites!

The ever so humble dried bean has a rich history. The beans we view as a staple in soups and casseroles have traveled over continents, mountain ranges, and across oceans to make its way to our dinner tables. Not only are beans nutritious, but they are as varied as the people who eat them. Bean history is our history!
