A very warm welcome, ladies and gentlemen, to Cook, Dine, Yum!, the long overdue cooking and food blog of Shirley Parabia. This is where I intend to post my recipes, product and restaurant reviews, dining and travel experiences, and other food-related articles.
I have long since wanted to start a website focused on the culinary and gustatory aspect of my life, having started to cook in earnest in January 2014. It became a passion in honor of my paternal grandfather, who was an unparalleled grill master. Daddy passed away in the latter months of 2013, but today his memory, teachings and simple, sincere cooking principles remain alive through his only grandchild.
The domain name was purchased on 26 January 2017, but the site went live only on 2 June 2021. Before that, I intermittently posted my food obsessions on Tumblr. To know more about me, please visit my journal and network.
