"Filipino food is a fusion of different flavours which evolves through various influences like Spanish, American, Chinese and other Asian countries. As we adapted and concocted these dishes it has created diverse flavours that are uniquely Filipino seasoned and spiced by our rich culture".

I woke up this rainy morning with the sweet chocolatey smell of Champorado, my mama's been stirring a big pot of it. Yes, you've read it right. It's a big pot! Well, my mom's used in cooking whatever-it-is in big batches, as if she's feeding an army, even if there's just 4 people in the house. I think it's a habit she'd had, when we still live in province where whenever you cook you share with the whole neighborhood, too. I think that's what most Filipinos are, generous and welcoming to everyone.

Oooh so chocolatey Champorado!

Champorado is a sweet chocolate rice porridge. Wherein sticky rice is boiled with cocoa powder or tablea (blocks of cocoa powder). I love pouring more milk into it.
Most of Filipinos would pair champorado with tuyo (dried fish). We just love pairing the sweet with salty :)
We have such a piquant taste for food.

  1. I like champorado with lots of milk & i like it straight from the fridge :) hehe. i don't eat tuyo nga lang.

  2. This is very unusual to me ... salted fish with chocolate! I suppose it's almost like having bacon brownies or bacon ice cream :D Very interesting indeed!

    Hi Ping! that's very unusual indeed.
    but it's a Filipino favorite.
