Bernice “Bianca” Termulo
Co-Founder/Chief Technical Manager/ Content Creator
Bernice is an Events and Marketing Professional. Her corporate events are marked by her commitment to excellence. Bernice’s love affair with food started at a young age, fueled by her family’s love to eat. She is fascinated by unique spices as well as the possibilities created by limitless variations and combinations of flavors. What makes her passion for food so strong is the conviction that the significance of food goes beyond the act of eating. With her degree in International Studies, Bernice understands that communing with food is an act of cultural intimacy, a way of knowing that links directly to cultures and traditions, and to people’s histories. This explains her thirst for travel—she can’t get enough of knowledge related to local dishes and to ingredients that are native to the regions of Asia. Among her favorite cuisines are Japanese, Mediterranean and Indian.
As a food and culture blogger, Bernice likes to discuss food in a holistic manner. While knowledgeable in the technical aspects of food criticism, her preferred approach to food is one that explores connections between flavors, practices of food production, the symbolic meaning behind experiences of food consumption, and the place of food in the economics of everyday life.
She would go anywhere and everywhere for food but far, far away from dirty dishes.
