I am a chef on a luxury world cruise liner. I love to cook and write recipes that are inspired by foods from all over the world.
Ube is a Filipino term for purple yam. In the Philippines, ube is a common ingredient in many sweet dishes, and it is often paired with either cheese or macapuno, which is the jelly-like white flesh of a coconut. I prefer to pair ube with cheese, so I came up with a delicious recipe that I call ube and cheese jelly.
