FRIED AND “ADOBOED” PORK | LATOK KALAN-AN by Julius D. Mariveles | WITH A POCKET REVIEW by Hannah A. Papasin

The dish itself is a perfect blend of sourness, sweetness and heat. The sourness must have come from the vinegar, while the sweetness came from the barbecue sauce that Bacolod Spice allowed to reduce. The heat is tolerable, not the kind that would kill the taste buds with one bite. Continue reading

PORK COOKED “FILIPINO PEOPLE” STYLE | LATOK KALAN-AN by Julius D. Mariveles

Tulapho or pork cooked “Filipino people” style is simply cuts of the animal’s belly cooked in its own fat. Like us – cooked in our fat since decades ago. But then this is not a political discourse. This is a recipe. Continue reading

YSHIA’S BUTTER AND GARLIC SHRIMPS | LATOK KALAN-AN by Yasmin Pascual-Dormido

That Yasmin Pascual-Dormido knows how to hunt for news and to report is known to everyone.

LATOK KALAN-AN | SAMHAIN SPICY SHRIMP by Julius D. Mariveles

This is a rather stylish name for a simple sauteed shrimp dish but allow me to be like that today as we move close to Halloween.  Samhain (pronounced as sow-an or sow-in, says Wikipedia), means “summer’s end” in Old Irish.  It is where Hallow’s Eve traces its roots. A long weekend lies ahead of us … Continue reading

PUNTA Y PECHO POCHERO VIUDA DE SAB-A | LATOK KALAN-AN by Julius D. Mariveles

The Latok is back! After months of hibernating, things are heating up once again at our Latok kitchen. Ramon has drenched us for the past few days and what we need is comfort food. What comes to my mind is pochero – that merry mix and jolly jumble of meat, vegetables and fruit that reminds … Continue reading

Our romance with the pork we set aside for a while. It’s a weekend and what better time to cook, eat and de-stress. Here are two recipes that are simple to cook. Fire the stove and forget… until they are cooked, of course. First up would be steamed suaje – large, succulent shrimps cooked in … Continue reading
