Hi! I'm Nastasha Alli 😊
I was born and raised in the Philippines and moved to Canada in 2007.
On this blog, I develop Filipino recipes streamlined for modern kitchens. I live in an apartment in Toronto and cook Filipino food regularly - and want to show that you can too, wherever you are in the world! Browse through my recipes here.
You'll also find book reviews, travelogues, event recaps and other forms of food writing here, including a spotlight on Philippine ingredients. I love learning about food culture, traditions and history!
On my Exploring Filipino Kitchens podcast, I talk about all things Filipino food with guests from all over the world.
I work as a travel specialist for G Adventures in Toronto and love living in a city where fantastic food and drink experiences are never far away.
