December's Dinner & a Movie

Welcome to Dinner & a Movie for the month of December. To round out the year, I have chosen 'American Adobo', a Filipino-American film, with a menu of classic dishes from the Philippines to accompany it. Both are going to be quite a gamble, as I've never seen the movie, I've never been to the Philippines, and have never cooked, nor even tasted Filipino food. So this time, I am an absolute beginner. But given the tasty success of all the exotic meals I have prepared in the past seven months, I am confident that I will be able to put an authentic Filipino meal on the table. And American Adobo comes highly recommended.
