“Mix-Mix” is a term that my late Filipino mother used in the kitchen when cooking, “Give it a good mix-mix!”, as well as an affectionate term for her mixed-race children. My childhood was spent enjoying the exotic cuisines of China and the Philippines, as well as making homemade pasties with my English grandmother in her Devon kitchen.

Like my mother I love nothing more than cooking for my family, so in honour of her and as a way for myself and my children to tap into our heritage, this blog is a place for me to compile the recipes that she loved, and the food that I now love to cook for my young family (often with an Asian 'mix-mix' twist) using the wonderful produce on my Devon doorstep.
