How To Cook Adobong Muh-Knock

A friend emailed me this video of a white guy cooking chicken adobo. I wonder if he had a script or he really knows how to speak Tagalog. It's fun to hear a white guy say "sangkuchahin". Adobong muhknock - ang suhrap suhrap. Enjoy!

This video left me dying with laughter. Someone also left it for me in my comments recently. I laugh everytime I see it.

Marvin I liked this video the first time I viewed it and just have to share it with other Filipinos.:)

g_mirage this guy is good. He speaks Tagalog very clearly and he looks like he has cooked the dish before.

what a pretty cool video!

I actually had to do something like this for Tagalog class back in college. We all had to do a project and one of the choices was to do a cooking demonstration on video. I ended up making palitao and did exactly what that guy did. Showed the ingredients, went over the steps one by one, in halting Tagalog, using instructions I got straight from my mom.

The sad thing (for me at least) is that that guy speaks waaaay better Tagalog than me. But I can at least get the accents right.

caninecologne I would like to see your video making palitao!:)

hi! i'm afraid that video tape is long gone!

by the way, after doing some websearching, i found out that the guy on the chicken adobo video, is half filipino. if you look on his website, he's been in several movies and/or shows in the philippines. he seems to be popular on the philippine tv shows as a guest.

on another note, i really enjoy your blog - your food photos and culinary adventures are amazing and i only wish i had the time and talent to do what you do. your family is so fortunate to be able to enjoy your recipes and creations.

correction - the guy is NOT half Filipino after all. I was reading an article link on his website. Just have read i too fast. His ADOPTIVE mother is Filipina. my bad. props to the guy for lerning the language at least.

Thanks for the video notice and for the kind flattering comment, I appreciate it.:)
I uploaded another video which is not as clear as the first one. I will look for his website now that I know he is an "adopted" Filipino from perhaps Germany or Austria, he does not sound American at all.:)

BTW I tagged you for a meme.:)
