The aroma of Menudo or Afritada always brings me back to my childhood and to my grandparents’ kitchen. There’s nothing like good ‘ol home cooking — the stuff that sticks to your ribs, fills your belly, and warms your heart. Filipino food is so special to me because not only are those family recipes part of my roots, but because they evoke memories of childhood and happy times spent with family.
I’ve been creating some Filipino Fusion dishes with McCormick’s Filipino spices and mixes since I was introduced to them a few months ago. Though I love coming up with new recipes for classic Filipino flavours, I do love to go traditional as well.
Do you prefer innovative recipes that play on classic Filipino flavours like Adobo or Calderetta? Or do you rather have old school, totally your Grandma’s comfort food recipes? I know that my Lola made the best Leche Flan and my Lolo made the best Calderetta and Pork Adobo! My aunts and uncles have always said that my grandfather’s Lengua Estofada was famous!
