About Filipino Food Aficionado


Welcome to Filipino Food Aficionado!  This blogsite aims to promote Philippine cuisine all over the world. It's not only intended for Filipinos but also for all Filipino food lovers on the worldwide web. It introduces its audience to the myriad of cooking methods and exotic fare that compose this unique cuisine. It also contains everything one needs to know about the Philippine cuisine -from its history and influences, its characteristics, the cooking styles and techniques, to the ingredients used in Filipino dishes. It will also feature traditional and regional recipes from all over the Philippines.

Filipino Food Aficionado (FFA) is not just a recipe blog. It dwells more on the gastronomic culture of the Philippines. Notes are usually included at the bottom of each recipe so please take time in reading it as it may address the questions you have in mind. This blog is a work in progress and the recipes that I write depends on what I am currently working on in my kitchen. Some recipes will contain more vegetables in an effort to enrich some of the traditional Filipino dishes. 

Right now I am focusing on regional specialties and inserting some occasional menu suggestions and recipes from time to time.

I believe that cooking is one thing, but having a full grasp of the what's,  why's and how-to's of a particular dish is another thing. It gives you a better understanding and appreciation of different cuisines and culture. -And that is the very reason why this blog,  Filipino Food Aficionado was created.

On the right hand side panel you'll find the link to the list of recipes that Filipino Food Aficionado have tested and standardized. I hope you will find my blog both informative and helpful.   If you have questions or suggestions, feel free to post a comment or e-mail me at:
