Connie Veneracion is a former writer for The Spruce, contributing articles and recipes for a year and a half. She learned to cook by hanging out in the kitchen with her grandfather, grandmother, and father. She cooked her first complete dish when she was in the fourth grade—a huge bowl of spaghetti—and she hasn't stopped cooking since.
As a wife and mother, Connie has been feeding her family home-cooked meals for over two decades. She has a bias in favor of whole foods and is completely obsessed with Asian cuisines. A lawyer by profession, she retired early to raise her two daughters. In 2003, she created a series of blogs as a creative outlet for three things she loved—cooking, writing, and photography. Soon her blogs caught the attention of international media, including Gourmet magazine and The New York Times.
Connie is a lawyer by profession, graduating from the University of the Philippines.
