Kitchens are going to be overused and abused this Christmas, I’m sure. We Filipinos love to eat, but more so during the holiday season. Many of us are going to do a lot of entertaining so the kitchen is going to be very busy.

I don’t know if your homes still have that separation of “clean” kitchen and “dirty” kitchen. Do the millennials even know this? With the changing lifestyles, most of us don’t have those two separate spaces in our homes anymore. Most kitchens in condos, for example, are usually open ones. It is great for entertaining, that is if you still have the energy after work, school, commute, and chores.

Personally, I am all for the word that starts with a “c”….as in catering, at least for some dishes. All you need to do is cook or bake those dishes (two max) that have made you famous (haha), and the rest can be delivered. Limited budget? Then get some pizzas, lechon manok, or some take-out Chinese dumplings.

But the best is to host a potluck. So easy! Just assign a dish to each guest so you’ll have all food groups covered. Then as the host, you can make the mocktails. You can zap it with alcohol if you like, but do have an innocuous potion for the designated drivers!
