Cooking and entertaining are two of my biggest passions. I especially love hosting dinner parties where I serve dishes from my cultural background. Filipino food on Manitoulin Island? Why, yes! My husband and five year old request Filipino food on a weekly basis! Some of their favourites are Filipino BBQ, Caldereta, Chicken Adobo, Pork Adobo, Sinigang, Tortang Talong, Pancit, Lumpia, Misua Soup…the list goes on!
I’m excited to share that McCormick Canada has released Filipino Recipe Mixes for the fastest growing ethnic community in Canada! There are 11 well-loved Filipino Recipe Mixes available at retailers in Toronto and Vancouver as Filipino food continues to emerge as an internationally recognized cuisine. I grew up eating Filipino food, but the first time my husband ever tried Pinoy cooking was when we were dating! A veritable meat and potatoes man, who grew up on British cooking, he can now cook some Filipino food on his own now because he loves it so much! Am I ever excited about McCormick’s Filipino mixes! Another thing I am excited about is that the packs have NO MSG (except for Pancit Canton).
Traditionally served with rice, Adobo makes use of pork or chicken slowly cooked in vinegar, garlic, bay leaf, peppercorns and soy sauce. McCormick’s Adobo Mixes in Classic, Adobo sa Pula at Adobo sa puti bring an exciting experience to this all-time favorite dish.
Sinigang is a traditional Filipino soup characterized by its sour flavour associated with tamarind. McCormick’s Sinigang Mixes come in Classic flavour and to provide a fresh twist to this dish, McCormick is also introducing Sinigang with Lemongrass and Sinigang with Rosemary and Chili. Perfect for the growing preference for fusion in Filipino food.
The McCormick line of Filipino seasonings brings back memories of well-loved Filipino dishes such as Asado, Curry, Menudo, Pancit Canton and Caldereta.
