The Pinoy cuisine tells the story of our beloved land through flavors—from our cultural influences and ever-evolving Filipino traditions from more than 7000 islands. Each dish or what we call "ulam" is like having a taste of Filipino history, literally.
Here's a run-down of some of our Filipino favorites.
These Lumpia Cups are the perfect appetizer to make for a big crowd. There is no wrapping required and super easy to make.
Here’s a recipe you can use any time of year to feature whatever combination of fresh farmers’ market vegetables seems most appealing. The fresh udon noodles can be replaced with Chinese style egg noodles or Filipino canton noodles.
Lechon is a Filipino Party favorite, this is a healthier way to make it. This recipe scales well, as the method of cooking is the same regardless of how much pork is used. So scale up or down according to how many guests you are serving!
Bibingka is a Filipino cake made from rice flour that is both sweet and salty. Usually, the cake is topped with some very salty duck eggs and cheese. In this recipe, I replaced it with some good flaky sea salt and some cream cheese.
You don't need to wait until Christmas to eat this!
This Coconut Panna Cotta may sound and look fancy, but really you are just making milky jello. True story. Add some caramelized bananas and jackfruit and you have a Filipino inspired dessert.
