Celeste Heiter's Adventures in Asian Food & Film

Faith and Begorra! 'Tis St. Patrick's Day!

This Month's Film: Magnifico
Cuisine: Philippine

I've got a goodly measure of Irish blood flowing through my veins, and although I don't really celebrate the occasion anymore, growing up a good Catholic girl in a school with Irish nuns, it was always a big day for us as children. We were allowed to forego our blue-and-white pin-striped school uniforms for the "wearin' of the green," and there was always a classroom party with green cupcakes and lime Kool-Aid. And heaven knows, in all my years tending bar, I've served enough green beer to float a yacht! But there will be no green brew in my household today. I'll be in the kitchen most of the day making Philippine food instead.
