Fine Filipino Food
Fine Filipino Food is a testament to the rich mix of cultures that have influenced the cuisine of the Philippines, situated at the crossroads of the Pacific Ocean and the South China and Sulu Seas. Chinese traders introduced stir-frying and the deep-frying techniques, as well as noodles and soy products; Malaysian spice traders brought seasonings from the Spice Islands and introduced that classic appetizer, satay; Spanish colonizers brought their culinary traditions. Adobo, arguably the best-known Filipino dish, is a by-product of Spanish and Chinese influence.
Enjoy this blend of cuisines with its variety of cooking methods, such as stir-frying, deep-frying, grilling on skewers, sautéing in coconut milk, and marinating in vinegar and spices, broiling over live charcoal, wrapping banana leaves, and steaming.
