When I was visiting my parents in the Philippines from my company’s annual vacation, my dad gave me a hand-down recipe to keep. For me, “hand-me-down” recipes are the best kind of gift to receive. They have been carefully practiced and shared. It makes me wonder what hand-me-down recipes I’ll be leaving my kids with? Well for once, inclination to culinary is required.
