Filipino Food

I follow people on Twitter for specific reasons.  I try not to follow people just to gain followers in kind.  This sounds like the subject of a future blog post.

One of the Twitter feeds I’ve been following is @FilipinoFood.  The feed is interesting to follow, especially for me, because I don’t eat much Filipino cuisine.   My wife partakes in a broad variety of Filipino dishes, most of which I shy away from. I’m not sure why I haven’t acquired a taste for this cuisine.  I’m a standards eater: pancit, lumpia, and adobo.

The subject of adobo was on FilipinoFood a while back.  A few years ago my mother finally showed me how to make her version.  I have, for the most part, been able to recreate it successfully.  But as with any recipe, there are variations. One of those variations offered via FilipinoFood was cited here.  I’m anxious to try it because it calls for coconut milk, something my mom’s recipe doesn’t use.  I am interested in how coconut milk will change its flavor.

The blog entry about chicken adobo also made me seek out the book, Memories of Philippine Kitchens. I found the book, written by Amy Besa and Roma Dorotan, at my local library. I want to try a few recipes from this book.
