“Pull up a chair. Take a taste. Come join us. Life is so endlessly delicious.” – Ruth Reichl
The most challenging part every time I edit videos
for my sister’s vlogs is that I terribly get hungry. For us here working abroad, one of the things that we miss in our native land are the native foods we grew up with.
One of the delicacies in my province that Aklanons crave for during early morning rainy season and during “merienda” every sunny afternoon is Ginataang Halo-Halo or we call it “Eangkuga” in our dialect. I have hard time putting into words how I will describe this delicacy. Honestly, I am not a kitchen expert, but the best way I could give little explanation to this Aklanon popular afternoon snack is that it consists of variety of root crops cooked in rich coconut milk and muscovado sugar.
Not only will it give satisfaction to your palate, this will also provide good amount of nutrients your body needs, especially these days in which the world
has been overrun by the virus, to work its best. Moreover, this dish does not require a high caliber cooking skills. Preparation is so simple and the ingredients
are readily available in the market, or sometimes, if lucky enough, in your garden or in your neighbor’s garden (just ask permission and share some when you’re done cooking hahaha!).
Watch the video for complete recipe.
Enjoy… keep safe… God bless
