Various Filipino food represents hundreds of years of colonization and the influence of foreign cultures.
Traditionally, Filipino cooking involves mere steaming, boiling, roasting and grilling.
Then, it evolved to a cuisine that is mostly Spanish-based, topped with Asian influences.
This is because the Spaniards ruled the Philippines for 333 years – they brought us potato dishes, cattle, tomato recipes, grains and other staples.
While the Chinese people traded us their noodles, soy sauce, frying and stir-frying dishes.
Typically, Filipino food is eaten with rice using spoon and fork… and traditionally with your bare, clean, hands a.k.a kamayan.
The Filipino cuisine is really diverse and it would be difficult to define it with just a few words.
Try asking any Filipino you may know and they will surely have a challenging time.
However, common Filipino dishes are noodles, meat stews, a wide variety of soups, vegetable stews, and grilled fishes.
Also, vinegar is often present in various Filipino dishes – specially the most-loved pork or chicken Adobo.
We have a wide variety of vinegar – palm vinegar, coconut vinegar, cane vinegar, and rice vinegar. Filipinos love to ferment vinegar from food sources that contain natural sugar.
