FILIPINO SAUCES/DIPS and MIXES
The Philippines has 7,000 islands and each place in the country offers a rich culinary experience noting that what is now enjoyed as Filipino food is a convergence of influences by its colonizers. Food is a big part of the culture and traditions of Filipinos and their way of cooking is characterized by how Filipinos enjoy their food, by “balancing three predominant elements of taste: sour, salty, and sweet.” Family celebrations will not be complete without serving Filipino favorites, or the popular Filipino dishes, such as pancit (noodles), lechon (roast pig), sisig, adobo (soy sauce and vinegar-marinated meat), lumpia (fried spring rolls), Pinoy-style barbecue, grilled meat and seafood, among others, which are either cooked or consumed with dips made of basic Filipino sauces, such as soy sauce, vinegar and fish sauce, or a combination of these sauces with other spices, for a more flavorful taste. Preparing and cooking Filipino dishes have now also been made easier with the availability today of ready-mixed spices, in powder or liquid form.
