Marketman in April’s Appetite Magazine…


Just a quick post to toot my own horn and let you know I am in the April issue of Appetite Magazine. I thought it was just a small mention for Zubuchon in a spread on Cebu’s restaurants, hotels, etc. But then I flipped through the pages and ACCCKKK, a full page picture and a two page article follows! I wasn’t prepared for that. And full page photos up close are FRIGHTENING. So much so I think they photoshopped my skin and hair to make me look less scary! :)


The Appetite editorial team had visited us at the tail end of their Cebu trip in February or so and we entertained them on the garden terrace, to make sure they tasted our lechon just a few minutes after it was taken off the coals. I answered several of their questions, and noticed a recorder, but I didn’t think it would turn into an article of this kind. Thank you to Appetite Magazine editors and team for the feature and for mentioning Zubuchon in their special on Cebu.

  1. Time does not stand still. It seems only a few weeks ago that they featured you camouflaged with a jipijapa…

  2. Footloose, of course I had to google jipijapa. It’s been 7 years and 20 pounds less since that first Magazine shoot in Yummy Magazine… :)

  3. Sorry guys, but that’s what we called the dressier straw hat of my dad to distinguish it from the local buntal or tansuí that were used for yard work and hiking.

    Off Topic. The book of the week at BBC Radio4 is The Land Where Lemons Grow by Helena Attlee, a splendid survey of the citrus culture of Italy. My own introduction to it was at the start of my low-budget grand tour when I first tasted aranciata and limoncello oh some forty years back.

    Speaking of Grand Tours, somebody uploaded the full BBC series in Youtube. If you have the time and internet connection, very informative with Brian Sewell’s guidance and delightfully posh English accent.

  4. Thanks for the link, Footloose.

    It was a delightful 15 minutes indeed for the first episode which gave a relaxing break for me while at hospital where hubby is for an illness. It felt almost the equivalent of sipping limoncello in a cafe on the Amalfi coast. And thank God for good internet connection. Now thirsting for the rest of the five episodes.
