I have been thinking a lot whether or not to start a lutong pinoy food blog that is focus on famous and
delicious pinoy recipes and regional filipino cuisine including desserts. My stomach is growling now thinking about pork adobo and beef bulalo sshhh….
I am not a master cook, heck for all practicality I am not a cook. Period. But it doesn’t mean I can’t share about Filipino dishes, how to cook pinoy foods and where you can find the best ingredients or the best version of pinoy staple fiesta foods like pancit, kare-kare and lechon, which of course I’d say cebu lechon is the tastiest. You can ask my favorite chef Anthoy Bourdain if you don’t trust me lol.
The guys in our family are the cooks. My father cooks, my male cousin cooks, my brother is the exception that is because he rarely eats normal food (his food affair requires another blog post).
Anyhow, during celebrations or even normal every day meal, expect our guys to lord it over the kitchen. And I’m a lucky girl because my boyfriend cooks deliciously too. Haha. So I’m confident that I won’t be ‘required’ to whip out any Filipino recipes from an old-tattered cooking book and turn in yummy dishes now or in the future. Yes I am that confident. Lol.
But I know authentic Filipino recipe and food that taste good, and what food you can just skip. And since I travel a lot and we know that travel, exploration, local dishes and native delicacies goes hand in hand, then a food review or recipe entry is not so odd on a personal and travel blog. But yah, perhaps I should limit covering food to single blog entries or within my travel chronicles and not devote an entire blog on Filipino food and recipes as it maybe beyond me 🙂
Okay, enough said, I’ll leave Filipino food blogs and Philippine recipe to the experts. Thank heavens, disaster avoided hehe
