One thing I know, it feels nice to shop for fellow bloggers. I initiate events “once in a blue moon” and as a gesture of appreciation for those who joined the recent Lasang Pinoy 25, I am giving away the following:
Lacquered bento box, a set of chopsticks, a Periplus Mini-Cookbook on Homestyle Japanese Cooking, P1000 gift certificate from Delifrance courtesy of GeiserMaclang and a Blog-O-Rama feature to the most prolific bento maker Miss Kitchencow. Thanks a lot for submitting two bento entries Chrissie … and many more bentos to come 😉
A set of plastic lunchboxes from Japan Home Center and The Adobo Book : Traditional & Jazzed Up Recipes goes to Ryan of KainPinoy who made the picnic adobo bento. The book is a winner of the National Book Award and contains every imaginable styles of adobo you can find, from personal inventions to regional versions to recipes passed on through generations. A few of the examples: Paella de Adobo of Don Anastacio de Alba to pork adobo in buko juice to adobo sa alamang at gata with finger peppers and the Solar Box Day-Long Adobo of Reynolds Philippines. Viva adobo!
I am bequeathing a copy of A La Carte: Food and Fiction (as edited by Cecilia Manguerra Brainard and Marily Isip Orosa) to Mike Mina for his blog treatise on the fiambrera. A La Carte is one of the excellent Filipino food books to come out of late, a luscious salad mix of fact, fiction, fantasy and recipes. If you like food and would love the literary effort that goes with loving it, this one is a must-read!
Lastly, I’d like to give Bento boxes: Japanese Meals on the Go (to order from Amazon) to Iska for being this round-up’s earliest bird.
Congratulations fellas. You may contact me soon on how to get your prizes, or how I can get your prizes to you (whatever :D) Cheers to great global Filipino food!
