The Datu Puti Adobo Movement

Adobo is a beloved dish being cooked in almost all of the islands in the Philippines. It can be pork, chicken, beef, or seafood. The usual adobo is cooked in vinegar and soy sauce but thru the years, and the chefs creativity, there are now many versions of our beloved adobo.


The Datu Puti Adobo Movement is cooking up an exciting lineup of challenges and events to support its thrust to get Adobo its due accolade. Part of this gastronomic lineup of events is the Adobo Challenge, Datu Puti's search for the best version of the Adobo among a lineup of budding food entrepreneurs.

The Datu Puti Adobo Movement was initially created to push for Adobo to be our pambansang ulam. It is a movement that celebrates the cultural heritage of the Adobo dish. Filipinos around the country (different regions) have their own version of the adobo inspired by cultural and traditional way of cooking and local ingredients.

During the press preview of the Adobo Movement cooking challenged, 14 vendors was given the chance to prepare the dish and let selected media friends allow to sample it. The laing adobo from Dayrit's gets the nod from the media guests.


On June 11, 2016, the Datu Puti Adobo Movement and Mercato Centrale invited some vendors to showcase their adobo dishes. This is the culmination challenge of the Adobo Challenge.

The winners will be awarded start-up funds in cash, so they can include their winning dishes on their regular Mercato menu.

RECIPE: TKG's Pan-Grilled Maya-Maya With Calamansi Butter Sauce

I chanced upon some fresh-looking Maya-Maya being sold near my daughter's school today so I bought some. I don't really have a dish in mind when I bought it. Maybe fried, sinigang ... And upon checking the fridge and pantry (no more olive oil), I decided to marinate the fish in calamansi to remove the fishy taste. I pan-grilled the fish being careful not to burn it. Then I minced some garlic, cooked it in butter, added some salt and poured the sauce on top of the fish. And its ready to eat. And oh, I also steamed some cauliflower as a side-dish. Bon appetit!

RECIPE: TKG's Brownie Balls with Cointreau Infused Cranberries

We may still be quarantined inside our homes but that doesn't mean we have to let go of our love for food.

Here's my take on a classic brownie recipe made special with Cointreau.
