My Yummy Pantry Essentials

(((blush))) I have news! At first, I wasn’t sure if I was going to post this (shuffle, shuffle), but if there is anyone I would like to share this bit news with, it is the good people who actually visit my little corner of the cyber-world. So here goes: this month, your’s truly is part of a feature in Yummy Magazine on pantry essentials! Yes, me and four other food lovers (just us regular people that love to cook) share what we (have been hiding) think is important to have in stock.

Yummy is a relatively new food magazine; this is only its fourth issue. So far, I have been happy with what I find between its covers. It has a fresh and contemporary vibe that I like, clean and hip food styling, and smart features.

So if you'd like to see what I like to hide in my larder, you can grab a copy at the newsstand. If not, there are lots of other interesting things to peruse. I know I’m going to be checking out:

  • The shopping guide to our urban markets and specialty stores
  • The gourmet take on bangus (milkfish) by fellow foodblogger Anne of Eat Bagnus (I love bangus!)
  • The grilled tuna belly recipe
  • “Your Budget, Chef’s Recipe” – Top local chefs prepare menus and share recipes based on readers’ needs and budgets
  • Braised Pork Hocks Wrapped in Bamboo Leaves (oh yeah)
  • The feature on the M CafĂ© Jazz Brunch – Something that I have been wanting to try!

Ok, enough tooting! But do support a local food magazine today! :)

Not to mention! A glimpse of Joey as you've never seen before. :D I was so excited to see the feature, I literally ripped the plastic off the magazine before dropping it onto the cashier's conveyor belt. Congratulations, Jo-jo! Am so proud of you! :)

We have a great local food magazine called Country Kitchen which extoles the use of locally gathered produce - I make an effort to buy it every month because it's such a fascinating read!

veron said...

Wow...Joey congratulations! It is well-deserved! And thanks for the heads up. I will tell my brother to get it for me since he is visiting me at the end of this month.

Anonymous said...

Congratulations! How exciting! Is the magazine available in the States? :)

Hey, Joey! Kudos to being featured in Yummy!

ChichaJo said...

Hi Freya and Paul! That sounds like a great read! I would love for local magazines here to do that more often :)

Hi Veron! Thank you very much! :) How nice that your brother will be visiting...so will you be getting a Philippine care package? :)

Hi Ari! Thanks! I don't think it's available in the US...unless some enterprising Filipinos bring it in :)

Thanks Midge! :)

Last June 2 pa ako nakabili ng Yummy mag and saya ko noong makita kita roon. Medyo late na itong comment ko pero ang masasabi ko, you're pretty talaga.

Congratulations, Joey! It's always surreal to see oneself in a magazine. Am excited to grab a copy and read the feature on you, first thing!

ChichaJo said...

Thanks Lori! I agree...quite surreal! I never think I look like the way I come out...it helps to be holding the Nutella --> security blanket...hehehe ;)

Toni said...
