  1. Hi Amadeo. This recipes are truly heavenly. I could almost taste it as I read through it. I'll be watching out for more. I am from Western Mindanao but this is just the first time I have gotten a recipe for most of these food preparation. Thanks for that.

  2. Major Tom:

    My main thrust for doing this and this I stated at the outset, is to make sure that in the myriad world of recipes, one necessary "ingredient" that should be listed is where the recipe comes from or where it is most common. And how exactly, peoples in the different regions prepare and cook their recipes.

    After Mindanao, I shall move to my next best places in the archipelago, the Visayas.

    Enjoy!
