About Me

Hello there, welcome to my little space! 


 

I'm happy you're here. My name is Gilaine, I love to eat and I love to cook! 

I currently live in Cebu, the Philippines with my beautiful family and two adorable cats, Oreo and Bacon (I named them after my favorite food at that time). 

My love of food started while watching the food network channel on Netflix. I got amused by how the cooks prepare their food. I watched curiously how they turn some exotic ingredients into a glorious dish! 

 This inspired me to start making my food at home, I started learning how to cook very often since I had all the time in the word. I find cooking to be fun that it turned into a casual hobby during my free time. 

My partner and I decided to go to Singapore to try some food and discover new flavors. It was my very first time to travel abroad, and the feeling of just being in a different country was exhilarating! After that trip, we always travel for food! 

I love discovering different flavor even the deep lingering ones and incorporate them into my cooking. 

During my travels to Thailand, I fell in love with their food culture, my partner and I paid for a full day cooking class in Chiang Mai. The experience and the connection I had with food was huge. It was not just about consuming the food so you get full but rather the emotions you get from every bite and the satisfaction you feel after the experience. 

I daydream about traveling around the world and try different kinds of dishes and come home thrilled to experiment with those newly discovered flavors and ingredients to my food.

You should know that not only I love food but I also love to workout, so I would like to share some healthy, easy and tasty recipes that I eat in real life that can also be flexible whether you're cooking for yourself, your family or friends. 

When one compliments what I put on the table, it makes the time and effort worth living for. I am sure we all can agree to that. ;) 

I enjoy capturing the beauty of food, it's color, texture, contrast... one great food shot and the photo speaks it all! Although I can't call myself a pro when it comes to photography rather an armature who strives always strives for improvement. 

Currently, I am using Nikon D3400 which is perfect for amateur photography. Although I am still new to photography, I am constantly learning how to be more creative and would appreciate any feedback on how my creations came out. 

I am obsessed with pizza, ice cream and anything with peanut butter! 

 I have been blogging for over two years now, I am the owner of  @purepinay's account, with over 10k followers  ( I thought it was impossible for me to even reach 1k followers, lol). In that space, I share my daily activities. I would love it if you followed me there too!    

Steemit community helped me entered into a whole new world. It helped boost my confidence in writing, to go out all out and inspired me to share with everyone my story.  Btw, Steemit is a social media site that rewards its users for their contribution using Steem tokens, you can read more here. 

If you don't have any steemit account you can create one here

Above all, my goal is to inspire people to step into their kitchen and have fun making some delicious, simple, and mostly healthy meals.

My hope is that you will join me on this food journey. Also with the desire to continue learning, I would love to connect with you and share your ideas on food. 

Xo, 

Gilaine

Our food in Nigeria are different from anything you've ever tasted before and most times, we rely on locally found vegetables and stuff.
I once tried Noodles and beans porridge. Everybody thought it was weird.

Then I hate yam, irrespective of how you process it, whether it's yam porridge, yam and pepper soup, pounded yam or fried yam, I can't stand it for some reason.

Hi, Gil.
Best of luck with this new project. I am not much of a cook. My skills are limited to survival cousine :)
But I used to eat a lot, almost anything. I lived in the states for some time and I enjoyed going to different counties to try foods from different cultures.
At the moments, given the horrendous crisis we've been going through in the last decade, our diet has been limited to very basic items.
About your questions

  1. What weird flavors of food combination do you really enjoy?
    I like black beans with sugar, which many of my fellow venezuelans would rather eat salty or tasteless.
  2. What's the worst food you have eaten?
    Hart to tell. can't recall. I have tried some afican food, like chicken with peanuts that i did not like that much, but nothing as bad that would make me throw up or something.
  3. What's in your fridge right now?
    some fish
  4. What's your favorite food?
    can't say one in particular. I love most foods. From paella to roast meat, from (chicken, fish, meat) soups to pasticho. I love sea food in general and I die for any dessert, especially icecream and cakes.

Black beans with sugar? Is this a sort of dessert?

22.01.2020 12:00
0

Haha. No. It's kind of a main course. But in some regions of Venezuela people like their beans sweet. You eat them with rice, meat and fried plantain.

Oh haha I thought it's a dessert, whenever I hear sugar, lol

Oh no, I love peanuts, especially peanut butter! 8 haven't had food with peanut butter that I didn't like, so far because I haven't tried anything so crazy. Maybe I should do that on one of my vlogs?

It might be fun, what do you think?
