Why Bacon, When You Can Have Filipino Chorizo?
Why Bacon, When You Can Have Filipino Chorizo? In America, we wake up to the smell of good crispy bacon sizzling on a pan.  But does anyone remember how mornings smell like in the Philippines?
Waking up to the smell of chorizo being sautéed perks up the mornings and cause us to jump out of bed and rush to the dining table.   This Filipino sausage (called chorizo in the south and longganisa in the north) is a breakfast staple throughout the country.  It is commonly served with sunny side up eggs and garlic rice (plain rice works as well).  This breakfast combination is so appetizing that it starts the day right.

Uniquely Filipino (KARE-KARE)
Uniquely Filipino (KARE-KARE) Just imagine a bowl of extra tender stewed beef oxtail, beef tripe, beef stew meat and a variety of vegetables in a thick peanut sauce and shrimp paste (bagoong) served on the side.  Kare-Kare is one unique dish that is loved by Filipinos.  The yellowish color of the dish comes from the atsuete oil which contributes to its peppery flavor and a hint of nutmeg.

Easter Sunday
Easter Sunday Spirituality is embedded deeply in the hearts of Christian Filipinos.  Each year, there are two religious Holidays that they celebrate – Christmas & Lent.  As we are in the midst of Lent, Filipinos observe this season by praying, fasting, confessing and making commitments on how to live a better and Godly life.  Discipline, such as giving up certain foods or activities, is a big part of this tradition.

A Lechon's Tale
A Lechon's Tale If you have never seen a Lechon being roasted, you are missing a big part of the Filipino culture.  The word “Lechon” (Litson) is Spanish which means “suckling pig”.  But to a Filipino, it has become a word that means “roasted pig” (Lechon Baboy).  I can still remember how carefully they stuff garlic, onions, soy sauce, lemongrass, salt, herbs and vegetables inside the pig and slowly roast it by just hand-turning it over hot coals for several hours.  The result is – crispy reddish brown skin and very tender juicy meat.
