There's a couple of things that Firemen, Chinese & Filipinos have in common.

 

Yes.  They love Food.  Community.  And Old- Fashioned Entertainment. 

 

These are some of my favorite guys to cook with.

 

When Pops retired from the fire department, he was acknowledged over & over again as their old-school chef, cooking things from scratch, whipping up crazy meals in the firehouse kitchens.  Pops has always cooked for crowd, & always put love into his food.  When we went vegetarian, along with our house, he happily fried his turkeys outside & convinced everyone to join him out there.  He just turned 65, & everyone got together to return the love.  

 

Care for a peek?

 

(Recipes?  Oh, I'm afraid we aren't quite the card-carrying crowd, but I'll get you all some solid concepts.  There's some sweet competition-style food here, for sure...  A San Francisco-style party in every way.)
