Zony's Croquettas

Zon worked for my best friends’ family for over 30 years as their nanny/cook/auntie. I’ve known her since I was 13 and have eaten too many of her meals to count. Almost every photo I have of Zon is of her cooking. If she’s not cooking, she always has a huge smile and food is in the frame.  The last time I saw her was in 2008 the day I left for Chicago; she’s since retired and moved back to her native Philippines.
