So our Dads deserve a special treat of Purple Yam suckling pig, grilled pig’s ears and Bicol Express. And then treat him to homemade strawberry ice cream (strawberries from the Green Market) or a clafoutis made of Rainier cherries from Washington. In case you have not met a really good clafoutis, it is a cross between a custard and a cake made with ground almonds and baked with cherries.
For Father’s Day, we also want to recreate a traditional dish from Arayat, Pampanga — Bringhe which is featured in our cookbook, Memories of Philippine Kitchens. It was recently featured by a food blogger – Fake Food Free – who decided to recreate this Philippine version of paella made with sticky rice, coconut milk, turmeric, chicken and chorizo. Chef Romy Dorotan’s version will use duck leg instead of chicken.

or call (718) 940-8188.
