Food is inextricably linked to memories. The joy of making new memories doubles when it comes to the holidays because that’s when we’re all surrounded by loved ones. Similar to a precious heirloom, family recipes are also great gifts that should be shared and passed on. Through the Legacy cookbook, the Assumption College High School batch of ’92 alumnae pass on their kitchen rituals to all of us.

The recipes include a Cirkulo bestseller-inspired paella dish by Malu Gamboa, pesang manok and other recipes by chef Margarita Fores of Cibo, Lusso, and Grace Park, a delicious lamb rending recipe from Abba Napa of the Moment Group, among other great women and great traditions.

Happy Ongpauco Tiu, chef and founder of Pamana, Hawaiian BBQ, Private Dining, as well as other brands under the Happy Concept Group, served as food stylist. She also shares a parmesan-crusted salmon recipe close to her heart, saying “I love entertaining at home. This is one of my go-to dishes when I host a dinner. It’s easy to go, but so delicious. My guests always compliment it!”
