My Philippine Cooking Experience

Chopstick Cinema

This Month's Film: Magnifico
Cuisine: Philippine

In my almost four years creating menus for Chopstick Cinema, I have prepared two Philippine meals. One to accompany American Adobo, the other to accompany Imelda: Power, Myth, Illusion. The dishes I prepared included Lumpia, Empanada, Sinigang (Tamarind Seafood Vegetable Soup), Seafood Kinilaw in Coconut Cream with Grilled Pineapple and Coconut Cole Slaw, Fish Escabeche, Chicken Adobo, Pork Adobo, Chicken Asadong Manok, Stir-Fry Bok Choy, Garlic Rice, and Iced Melon with Coconut Milk. All were delicious and turned out beautifully. So I'm looking forward to trying yet another suite of Philippine dishes for my Magnifico menu.
