Filipino Pochero Recipe using pork belly

Filipino Pochero Recipe using pork belly

Pochero (Puchero) is another great dish that we inherited from the Spanish. It is a stew of meat, vegetable, root crops and legumes and was originally considered as peasant stew (in Andalusia). This is because the meat that was usually used were from cheapest (fatty) cuts from a pig, cow, and chicken and with vegetables that were in season. The Filipino Pochero is slightly different as it has tomato sauce and it. What sets it apart from other tomato-based stew is that it (must) have ripe plantain banana or 'saba'. This makes a rather interesting…Read more→

Hong Kong Trip 2011

Hong Kong Trip 2011

A few days after our stay on the island of Pandan, Bebs had to go to Hong Kong to attend a week-long  seminar / annual meet-up  at the HQ of her company. That meant for me that I had to spent the whole day all alone in a megacity, oh dear! So far, for me Munich and Berlin were the largest cities I had ever visited. Berlin has an area of 890 km², but only 3.5 million inhabitants..HK compared to it has 7.2 million citizens on just 1.1 km² ... the pure craziness!…Read more→
German Black Forest Cake

German Black Forest Cake

Now, here is a classic! The Black Forest Cake or Black Forest Gateau (British) or what is known here, in Germany where it originated, " Schwarzwälder Kirschtorte" which literally means Black forest cherry torte. I had Black Forest cakes before in the Philippines (mostly from Goldilocks), but believe me, it's not the same! The original Black Forest cake has Kirschwasser in it. It is a clear fruit brandy made from sour cherries and without it, it does not really qualify as Schwarzwälder Kirschtorte. Well at least not in Germany. The first time I made this cake, I was…Read more→

Filipino Spanish Bread Recipe

Filipino Spanish Bread Recipe

Spanish Bread is a popular 'merienda' or afternoon snack in the Philippines. It has nothing to do with the Spanish bread of Spain (Pan de Horno) except maybe that they share the same form (rolled) but the Filipino version of Spanish bread has a sweet buttery filling in it! Spanish bread has been on my list, like forever, but I made it a priority, now that two lovely ladies have been asking for it! This is for you Espie and Belle! Making the bread itself was no biggie. I read a lot of…Read more→
