Filipino Cheese Bread – deliciously soft and cheesy!

Filipino Cheese Bread – deliciously soft and cheesy!

Another well-loved breakfast or afternoon snack by many Filipinos! Unlike other cheese bread you know, Filipino cheese bread is sweet and milky.   Back home, there is this bakery well-known all over the town of San Fernando, Pampanga for their cheese bread, the L.A. Bakeshop. They started downtown in 1985, not so far from the Cathedral and public market but the last time I was there, I heard they have already branched out to several other places. I have to agree with a lot of people saying that theirs is simply the best…Read more→

Lemon Torte (inspired from Purple Oven’s)

Lemon Torte (inspired from Purple Oven’s)

This is a new favorite! King, my soon-to-be brother-in-law, brought us a delicious Lemon Torte/Cake for our Media Noche (New Year's Eve feast). He got it from Purple Oven, a popular bakery in Manila. And it was so good that is why I had to remake it because, sadly, we do not have Purple Oven outlet in Germany :-( . I don't have their exact recipe so this one is my own, but inspired from theirs. Thru (some) experience, guessing and some experimenting, I could say it turned out quite well.  It is…Read more→

People are so into the shabby chic at the moment, you could see it almost anywhere.  Stores, boutiques, restaurants, Cafes...you name it! Mind you, I am not complaining, I actually am loving it!

Leche Flan

Leche Flan

Leche Flan is a traditional Filipino dessert that is commonly served at Fiestas and other special occasions. It is caramel custard made of milk ('Leche' in Spanish), sugar and eggs and usually flavored with vanilla and key lime zest. Back then, we celebrated Fiestas (feast day of a town's patron saint) every year in a really big way. We would prepare and cook food a day or two ahead and on the day itself, visitors from neighboring towns or even those from afar would come to our doorsteps all day long and sometimes it can…Read more→

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→
