Most Pinoys who know how to cook basic Filipino dishes like adobo, sinigang, tinola and such may have likely learned it through their mother or grandmother. Even if you asked some chefs on where they get their inspiration from cooking, they would answer that it’s either of the two.
There is really nothing quite like our lola’s ulam Pinoy recipes as it was her who handed down the family recipes to our mothers. In line with this, Ajinomoto Philippines Corporation introduces LOLA or your Local food culture On-Line Assistant which will share its wealth of culinary knowledge and expertise accumulated through the years similar to our doting grandmother.
LOLA will also connect beyond old recipe books and help online audiences rediscover their roots. At the same time, our virtual LOLA will present how our local cuisines evolve through food stories and trivia.
For LOLA’s first blog, we will explore dishes that best represent Filipino cuisine.
These dishes are very much Pinoy, because they showcase prevalence, versatility, appeal to the public and diversity that reach even the farthest region of the country. Stay tuned for LOLA’s Bugtong ng Pagkaing Pinoy series that will show us ways to enjoy gulay recipes and other healthy recipes from the Philippines.
