The Right to Food is a Human Right

I’ve been cleaning my external drive since this morning; I wanted to delete photo files that I do not think I need anymore so I can save space.

Then I found these 🙂

The Adobo sa Gata is basically adobo with coconut milk added to enrich its taste, and long green chili pepper for some medium hot goodness. It’s one of my favorites at The Gypsy’s Lair here in my place. Adobo is cooking pork meat (or chicken and beef) in soy sauce, vinegar, and garlic with ground pepper. It got its name from the Spanish conquistadors, but the cooking process is entirely indigenous to the Philippines.

Adobo is a favorite Filipino dish in all parties — birthdays, weddings, baptisms, etcetera. It’s also a favorite easy-to-cook item of food that’s very good with rice. Some like to cook it dry, some like it with a bit of sauce to put on their rice.

Iced biko, on the other hand, is putting ice cream on top of the sticky rice dessert that is popular among Filipinos. When it melts, and its taste blends with the biko, it’s so good!

Biko is easy to make. One only needs malagkit (sticky or glutinous rice), gata ng buko (coconut milk or cream), and brown sugar.

The other one’s Chao Long (stewed rice noodles), a Vietnamese recipe that’s also popular in Palawan. It’s served with mint leaves, bean sprouts, chili-garlic oil, and very good with garlic French bread.

I have to practice my right to food. I’m thinking Chao Long… 🙂
