A “Filipino Dinner” for Foreign Guests…
All this food aid distribution can make one hungry… While we mostly kept going on sandwiches brought up from Cebu City, we weren’t that hungry while on the road in Northern Cebu. But back in Manila for the weekend for previous appointments, I started to feel not only exhausted, but famished as heck. We invited some foreign friends and their visiting guests to dinner one Sunday evening, and I promised to cook a pinoy meal. Nothing calms and rejuvenates me like hitting the market at the crack of dawn and planning out a meal for later in the day. This is what we had that evening. Up top, a cold salad of kamote tops, red katuray flowers (which turned a beautiful purple once cooked), kangkong and tomatoes, dressed with kalamansi/dayap, patis… see similar recipe, here.
