This is your new Pinoy Recipe One-Stop-Shop!
Filipino cuisine is a magical thing. From centuries of exposure to different cultures, we have developed our very own, unique way of cooking. From the Chinese Pancit to the Spanish Empanada, we have infused everything with our own brand of flavor that cannot be found anywhere in the world.
It is said that the Filipino way of cooking began with our ancestors. Back then, boiled, steamed, and roasted food were the norm. No wonder some of our best-known local cuisine fall under these categories -- Lechong Baboy/Manok as well as our various soups and sarsas, and more.
The Chinese brought us rice, and introduced it as our staple food. What else is better after a long hard day of work than a plate of steaming rice and a bowl of your favorite dish? We have learned to prepare rice in various ways. We have also learned to prepare rice cakes, as well as a variety of food items that have rice as its central ingredient.
Various influences from our neighbors brought about the appearance of condiments such as the Bagoong, Patis, and the like. They also taught us to use Coconut Milk, which is delectable in Ginataan. Indian influence taught us puto and some other dishes.
The Spanish came, and the Arroz Caldo, Longganisa, and Chorizo entered our diet. These food items had since experienced a Filipino twist, and they have proven that they were here to stay. They also brought the use of chili, tomatoes, potatoes, and corn -- some of the most common ingredients of present-day Filipino cuisine.
