Today I posted a video of cooking a Filipino dessert. I am trying to experience the culture more as I study each day and learn the Tagalog language. Cooking has never been something I regularly do or am good at. I find it to be much more fun now when I incorporate it with learning about culture and language. I recommend that when studying a language you embrace the new foods of the culture you are learning. It definitely adds to the experience in a positive way and helps keep you motivated to learn more.
