Via Mare Recipes On DVD

Labels: , ,

I just viewed a Filipino cooking for entertaining dvd, the food prepared by a pretty Filipino actress (Carmina Villaroel). All the recipes come from the restaurant Via Mare owned by Glenda Barretto who appeared at the end of the show for a brief period.The DVD is called Celebrate Special Occasions with the Best Recipes of Via Mare which I borrowed from Netflix.

The recipes that made me drool:

  • Stuffed Queso de Bola
  • Pork Pineapple Hamonado - I will make this first and will post it soon.
  • Pastel de Lengua
  • Stuffed Roast Turkey - The meaty stuffing looks so goood, I kid you not.;D
  • Cassava Bibingka - I am not sure if I will find the same Filipino style cassava flour here in the US but will try to substitute frozen.
Other recipes:
Cuchinillo with Paella Stuffing
Lapu-lapu With Mayonnaise
Pears Poached in Red Wine
Strawberry Fizz
Kiwi Fizz
Tsokolate Eh
Salabat Tea

Although the whole cooking show is in Taglish, the recipes and procedures are shown in separate boxes in English. I highly recommend this dvd to meat loving Filipinos.

Wow, great find oggi! I will definitely check this DVD out, even though my tagalog is terrible.

You can practice your tagalog while learning how to stuff a baby pig.:)

Sounds great but I try to limit my meat intake those days.

Sidney, I also try to avoid meat as often as I could and prepare vegetarian dishes at least once or twice a week.
My vegetarian sis-in-law will cringe when she reads the meat-stuffed turkey dish.:=)
