Gambas al Ajillo


by LV

in her home

-Malate, Manila-

with colleagues

LV lives in the building, two floors up.

She likes wine, cheese, and other things that go with wine.

This is what happens to brie — without air conditioning!!! — in the warmth and humidity of Manila.

Regrettably, during the 1 year that I’ve lived here, we managed just 5 occasions of hanging out together (see most recently 7.089 Squid Stuffed with Chives).

    1. this is why culinary traditions in tropical climates don’t typically include items that melt, also why dishes tend to be loaded with spices/salt/vinegar to ensure they don’t spoil.

      but as mentioned in the post, there wasn’t any A/C, which made it worse.

      people here either embrace the heat and humidity (like the host) (at work, they eat lunch outside on the terrace), or live in A/C all day long (like me)….
