Caldereta - Filipino Goat Stew
Full run down of the recipe on https://www.filifooddiaries.com/single-post/2015/02/02/Caldereta-Goat-Stew Caldereta has always been a favourite dish in our family as the soft and tender meat, that falls off the bones with the rich, deep and earthy sauce, is something that we can never resist. Like in any culture the best heirloom you will always be grateful for is that secret recipe that's filled with nothing but genuine love and soul! This recipe derived from my great grandad's - never met the guy but based on his recipe of Caldereta I know he was awesome! Great with steamed rice or even crusty bread but watch I've teamed this up with cheesy mash. Click and see why - hope you enjoy it! ;)
How to make Palabok - Seafood Noodles
Full run down of this recipe is on https://www.filifooddiaries.co.uk/single-post/2014/12/15/Pancit-Palabok-Seafood-Noodles A noodle dish with a deep and rich prawn based sauce - with an array of delicious toppings that compliment each other surprisingly well! Palabok is the common name for this dish but this is traditionally made with thin rice noodles. There are two other very similar dishes known as 'Pancit Luglug' which has thicker noodles and more sauce and the other is 'Pancit Malabon' which has less sauce but packed with loads of seafood. This recipe incorporates the my favourite bits about all 3. Hope you enjoy it! ;)
Sinigang na Isda - Fish Sinigang soup
Full run down of the recipe is on https://www.filifooddiaries.co.uk/single-post/2015/07/12/Sinigang-na-isda-Fish-Sinigang This luscious tamarind based soup is a great balance of tang and savoury. Amazing with pork, prawns or chicken but my fave is having it with fish and submerging freshly cooked rice in the tasty soup. There's no real rule on what veg you can use but the most popular are greens (spinach or pak choy), okra, aubergine, taro (or potato). Most like complimenting this dish with fish sauce or lemon juice or both mixed together! A real simple recipe great in the Winter and Summer or any day really!

Turon - Fried Banana Roll Quick and Easy
Don't forget full run down of the recipe is on https://www.filifooddiaries.co.uk/single-post/2015/03/10/Turon-Fried-Banana-Rolls Turon is more or less a sweet spring roll! One of the easiest yet tastiest desserts - definitely worth a try. I used my favourite spreads but you can try with any filling that tickles your fancy. Eating turon reminds me of visiting my grandma in the Philippines for afternoon tea or what we like to call 'merienda' where she would serve this amongst other authentic desserts and a basket full of sweet rambutans from her garden. *Bliss* This is probably one of the easiest desserts to make but nonetheless still a popular one! Traditionally made with slices of jackfruit and banana as the filling and then drizzled with syrup. If you know me by now I like to adapt things slightly so hope you like my recommendations.
