Chicken is a really great stand-by dinner: itÔÇÖs healthy, delicious and inexpensive. Sometimes I end up making the same recipe week after week, however, just because itÔÇÖs easy and everyone seems to like it.

ItÔÇÖs great when I come across a new (ethnic) chicken recipe, because it gives everyone a much-needed break from the same weekly chicken dish. It also gives me ideas that inspire future unique dishes, so no one ever gets bored!

Filipino cuisine is really special, with its fusion of Asian, Polynesian and Spanish influences. The dishes come out very unique and delicious every time. And in the Philippines, clay is still used as a much-loved cooking material, so any dish I make in VitaClay comes out perfectly!
