First Food Memory: I spent at least 30% of my life eating sinigang, a tamarind-based Filipino soup, so though I am not certain it is likely that this is my first food memory. My best friend and I slurping down Avocado smoothies at lunchtime before the schoolbell rang. Chocolate cupcakes and cheese sticks (which in this case were just wonton skins filled with cheese) from Conti’s, a Filipino bakery, for many many birthday parties. 

Beverage Of Choice: Natural wine from Rebel Rebel, or Polar Seltzer’s Unicorn Kisses
