Red Beans recipe - Philippine style by Elaine Vitikainen

Helsinki, FI

Read More...

This Red Beans recipe brings back lots of fond memories of my father who loved this recipe. Although, as a child growing up in the Philippines, it was such a task to separate the Malunggay (Moringa) leaves from its stems. It just took a long time! But I surely enjoy the combination of Red Beans and Langka (Jackfruit), especially with some splash of Patis (Fish sauce). I present this recipe in memory of my father. He must be smiling in heaven as I created this recipe!

Buko (young coconut) with ice-cream by Elaine Vitikainen

Read More...

Many people find these ice-cream flavours strange. But in the Philippines, the Ube (purple yam) and Macapuno (mutant coconut) ice-cream are the most common ice-cream. Serving ice-cream inside a young coconut is a great way to enjoy it. The soft, jelly like meat of the young coconut is a refreshing addition to the taste.
