Growing up, Filipino food has been a big part of my life. My mom’s family is from the Philippines and food has always played a big role in reminding us of our roots, keeping traditions alive, and most of all, giving us the opportunity to share a meal together as a family. Being in a busy kitchen buzzing with my mom and her sisters sitting around the table, filling and rolling lumpia or making sio pao will always be part of my childhood memories.
It makes me happy to see that Filipino food has become more and more popular. Home cooks and chefs in restaurants are getting creative in the kitchen and are coming up with interesting ways to showcase Filipino food! I once had Calderetta Poutine at a restaurant and just the other day I made Chicken Adobo Pizza.
Get Creative in the Kitchen
Show off your favourite Filipino recipe and make it original and out of the ordinary! I used McCormick’s Adobo Pula Seasoning Mix with Achuete to make my Chicken Adobo Pizza. It was a huge hit! So huge of a hit that there were no leftovers for lunch the next day! Want the recipe? While you check it out, why not vote for my recipe? 😉
