In Which We Talk About Lechon… – Midge in the Kitchen

It is, likewise, a touch of the baroque in that it has become the symbol of pure, glorious, gluttonous indulgence. A whole pig spit-roasted for hours over coals; the fat dripping into the fire and sending up smoke that permeates and flavours the meat; the skin cooks to a deep mahogany colour and shatters crunchily with a sharp tap of a knife. This is lechon, a true staple of festive tables in the Northern and Central Philippines. There are those who say that it was the Spaniards who brought the dish to the islands, a variation of the cochinillo [roast suckling pig] that appeared as the main course for feast days. The term itself – lechon – is derived from leche or milk as piglets were the animal of choice for cooking. Recently, a relative pointed us in the direction of sinigang na lechon.

Ensaladang Talong (Filipino-style Roasted Eggplant Salad) – Russian Filipino Kitchen

It has the right balance of flavor and texture– not too sour, salty, or sweet. The richness of roasted eggplants with a hint of sweetness from the onions and tomatoes mixed together in a light dressing of vinegar, salt, and sugar makes for a simple but tasty side dish. To make this, you’ll need Asian eggplants: Chinese, Japanese, or Filipino variety. They’re the ones that are long, skinny, and with dark or light purple skin. You can roast the eggplants three ways. I prefer the last method over the others because of convenience (no need to go outside to start the grill), less mess, and not having to deal with burnt smell all over the kitchen afterwards. This is very easy to make. Prep Time: 15 minutesCooking Time: 30 minutes Yields: 3 servings Ingredients: Things You’ll Need: Knife Cutting board Baking sheet Mixing bowl Fork Procedure: 1. 2. 2. 3.
