I can say, without at doubt, that my love for food was really passed on to me by my mom. I’ve said this before: growing up, I was well fed. Mom always prepared great home-cooked meals. On Saturday mornings, I would accompany her to the market and learned a lot from these trips. Coming back home from these market visits, we would always cook my favorite dishes of sinigang, adobo or nilaga. These memories and experiences with food are what I draw upon when I write, plus they have always served as my foundation with food and cooking. Thank you, Mom!

Our Mommy and Me issue is full of kids, moms and food! On our cover is wonderkid Revo, who joined Junior MasterChef Indonesia. This young man is really a whiz. I’ve seen him in action and he is amazing. I recently had the opportunity to be with him at Marina Bay Sands’ Epicurean Market and even there he excelled showing off his knowledge and passion for food. I foresee a bright culinary future for Revo. Chef Bal Arneson of the Asian Food Channel’s Spice Goddess was a recent Jakarta visitor and had her kids Anoop and Aaron with her. We got to meet mom and kids and chatted with them about food and their travels. We visit the kitchens of Mini Love Bites and join founder Venita Daben and her daughters Keira and Kimi as they bake us some delicious cupcakes. Another boy wonder is Claudio, who at 11 years old, makes his own sushi. I watch in admiration as he prepares me his dragon roll.

Shangri-La Hotel, Jakarta’s chef Roxanne Castillo of SATOO is visited by her mom Sonia and we catch up with them over lunch. These two ladies are both experts in the kitchen in their own right. In Went There Ate That, I continue with my experiences in Auckland and share some of the delicious food I had while I was there. For Taking It To The Streets, we have features on Bopet Mini and Jajanan Sekolah Menteng. While in Stuff of Legends, we feature lady nutritionist Ibu Tuti Soenardi.

Remember that you can now get your own copy of The Foodie at fine bookstores. We are also distributed in hotels, restaurants and cafes. Let us know what you think, write in on foodies@ with your feedback.
