Budbud & Puto Maya at Cafe Olegario

05 May, 2010

My maternal grandparents were from Cebu and Bohol, and they had a summer ancestral home on the shores of a small town roughly 30+ minutes away from the Clarin ancestral home in Loay, that I featured here. We were sitting in the garden of Cafe Olegario, set up by members of the Clarin…

Hopia Baboy

01 May, 2010

How’s this for a blast from the past? As a child, I LOVED hopia with munggo or mung bean filling. I don’t recall ube hopias in the late 60’s and early 70’s. I suppose for a kid, the sweetish buttery munggo filling was as good as a protein rich beans were…

Momofuku “Plus” Pork Buns

16 Apr, 2010

This was definitely one of the best sandwiches I have EVER eaten. Yup, SERIOUSLY GOOD. And relatively simple to make. The next time you have an afternoon merienda or picnic planned with friends who appreciate good food, or even a card game or televised sports event, consider serving these sandwiches together…

Pigskin (Crackling) Experiments a la Marketman…

12 Mar, 2010

Mrs. MM was watching a program with Heston Blumenthal on his quest to make the PERFECT peking duck recipe, part of which entailed recreating superb duck skin, but in his version, the skin was cooked separately from the duck. It was a fascinating program, and I was glad to hear even Mr. Blumenthal…

Bibingka at Home…

19 Jan, 2010

It’s been two and a half years since I first made and wrote about bibingka on this blog. Let’s just say I can fully understand why it is one of those native delicacies that one purchases from an expert rather than whips up in the backyard on a regular basis… However, now that…

A Lechon Wrap…

07 Dec, 2009

I’m not sure if it was “jetlag hunger” or not, but these impromptu lechon wraps were wickedly good. While at the BTC Sunday market in Cebu, and famished at 10 am, I headed over to Artisan’s table and bought some white tortillas, then over to the Mandaue delicacies table and got some papaya…

Pan de Sisig a la Marketman

09 Nov, 2009

Deadly. In a wickedly good way. Do not attempt this when you are particularly hungry, like a half hour before lunch, as you will eat far more than you should. After the Zubuchonwich experiments, we just HAD to test a Pan de Sisig. OMG, why hasn’t anyone else done this before?…

Emping Belinjo / Gnetum Gnemon Fruit Crackers

09 Nov, 2009

Emping Belinjo or Melinjo are small crisp crackers with a bitter edge. Made from the fruit of a Belinjo/Melinjo (gnetum gnemon) tree, the ripe red fruit are boiled then pounded and dried into flat little disks that puff up a bit when fried for just a few seconds. The whole time we…
