Let me share with you a true story Hanna of MushAwaited told me.

Some weeks ago, when Hanna and I were merely kapit-merchants, she bought a box of ๐—ฌ๐—ฒ๐—บ๐—ฎ ๐˜„๐—ถ๐˜๐—ต ๐—ฃ๐—ถ๐—น๐—ถ ๐—–๐—ฎ๐—ป๐—ฑ๐˜† ๐—ง๐˜‚๐—ฟ๐—ผ๐—ป.

She told me that her partner loved it considering he is not a fan of turon.
ย 
From viewing turon as merely โ€˜basicโ€™ into experiencing it in an elevated form as the Candy Turon, it made him appreciate this Pinoy favorite.
ย 
From feeling โ€˜mehโ€™ about classic Pinoy favorites to seeing it in a different light, is this the transformation Iโ€™m talking about?
ย 
Yes, but just a part of it.
ย 
It is because of the Candy Turon that from just an acquaintance, Hanna is now a warm, lovely face I look forward to seeing every market day.
ย 
It is because of the Yema with Pili Spread that from being just a candy most of us grew to know, I get to talk a bit about being a Bicolana, champion the Pili nuts, and revisit my connection to local ingredients.
