I love cooking and being a slave in the kitchen. I especially like ‘hosting’ salo-salo (Filipino term for gathering / party) at home for friends and families. I like to experiment on new recipes and make my ‘staple’ mains.
Honestly, it has always been a hit and miss for me when it comes to food prepared and most especially the amount of fare I make. Always when we I invite friends over, there is a humungous amount of leftovers and most of the time I ask my guests to take food home with them. And sometimes, I just end up throwing the leftovers away as we tend to not eat it when it’s been in the fridge for a couple of days. So when I came across this serving guide on Food Porn‘s Facebook Feed I immediately saved it as it just makes a good guideline for me in the future!
Here is my usual menu for a Pinoy gathering:
– Roasted Vegetables
– Mango Float (Dessert)
– Chicken Curry
– Anything Porky (Adobo, Roast Pork Ribs)
It’s different when I have Chinese friends – more stir fried veggies and noodles. For western guests, I let Babs come up with the menu (usually it’s roast). 😉 Anyway, I’m sharing it again and spreading the word on this.
