Mama Sita’s Mga Kuwentong Pagkain Cook Along features Palabok atbp, amid ECQ

On August 20/21, 2021 (Canada/Manila), participants who signed up for the third session of the cook-along entitled, “Filipinized! Featuring Pansit Palabok at iba pa,” are in for a treat: Nina Daza-Puyat will teach two ways of making Pansit Palabok. First, the simple way using Mama Sita’s Palabok Mix, and second, the chunky Extra Special Pansit Palabok from the new edition of the classic recipe book Let’s Cook with Nora by Ms. Nora Daza.

Participants can also try their hand at cooking the popular Visayan street food Chicken Inasal, an annatto-tinged grilled chicken marinated in vinegar, calamansi, spiced with lemongrass, and ginger. For a sweet ending, a modern take on bibingka, called Bibingkrep, will be presented to help make this traditional treat easier to recreate at home.
