Welcome to Gourmet Getaways Alesah

Hello to my lovely readers.

Today I thought it would be nice to just chat. I want to tell you a little more about Alesah.

As I said in my previous story Alesah is assisting me in marketing Gourmet Getaways and gaining sponsorship. She has so many great ideas. One of our priorities will be in giving back to our readers in the form of more competitions.

Alesah will be contributing some authentic Filipino recipes to the site and perhaps even doing a travel stories or two from time to time.

I thought it might be nice for readers to get to know her a little better so I asked her a few questions.

Q & A with Alesah

Q:  Food is obviously very important to me, what is your favourite Filipino food at the moment? Quick description of the dish please?
A:  A lot, actually. Right now, I’m thinking of Ginataang Kuhol which is a snail dish served in Spicy Coconut Cream.

Wow, that sounds really interesting! I wonder if I would be brave enough to try preparing snails!

Q. What about your favourite sweet treat? It can be any food from any nationality, even a junk food treat.
A: I love the Filipino halo-halo, its a sweet shaved ice dessert which includes lot of fruit, jelly and condensed milk. I also like crème brulee and panna cotta.

Sound delicious… my favourite desserts are usually fruit based too. Although a white chocolate panna cotta is pretty hard to beat!

Lol Alesah, I am sure I pack more technology than clothes too!

Q. Do you have a food, travel or wine motto, affirmation or joke that makes you smile, that you would like to share with readers.

Lol, I knew you were the right girl for me when you sent me this image!

Thank you so much for answering those questions.  I know I would love to be swimming in the clear blue water of El Nido in the Philippines. Do readers have any questions for Alesah?

About Julie


  1. what a great introduction 🙂

  2. Halo-halo looks to be a variation on the shaved ice treats so popular in Tokyo and Taiwan! I’ve only been to Manilla but your Alesah interview inspires me to travel to El Nido Palawan =)

  3. Great getting to know Alesah a little better!

  4. Lots of questions… advice for bloggers mainly! It’ll be very interesting to follow your journey. I’ve also not been able to market my own blog and just at the moment am taking the road of least commercialness…. indeed in June I’m going off air altogether… but in the fulness of time I would like to get more of a grip and be more business savvy. When do the children all leave home???

  5. Great to know Alesah and best wishes for your partnership! She seems to be quite fun 🙂

  6. Alesah has a cute personality and I can see why you’re drawn to her both for friendship and business. Good luck with this, it does sound promising!
