Filipino food recipes are now readily accessible online at Lutongbahay.com, the first and only interactive cooking portal that highlights Filipino regional food recipes. The words ï¿½lutong bahayï¿½ are Filipino for home cooking and that is exactly what you can do with the recipes you can find on the site. Anywhere you are in the world, all you need is an internet connection and this food portal to be able to make your own home cooked Filipino dish.
Any visitor to the site can get recipes for breakfast, lunch, dinner and even merienda and beverages. Merienda is Filipino for snacks, but these can be quite heavy at times and can even be as hearty as meals, too. Merienda food can also include sweets or desserts, but there is a separate section on desserts and delicacies at the site.
Meal recipes include appetizers, soup, bread, pasta, beef, veal, chicken, pork, fish, seafood and vegetables. There is a special category for healthy recipes, as well.
Well-loved Philippine specialties are listed, plus innovations on familiar Filipino food. Among the breakfast recipes is Longganiza (Philippine-style sausage) Sandwich Pan De Sal. Among the bread recipes are Banana Loaf. Banana cake is comfort food for many Filipinos.
Among the merienda recipes are Baked Kamoteng Kahoy (cassava) and Bibingka. Bibingka is a traditional rice cake that is traditionally baked with hot coals over and under the banana leaf-wrapped cake, using makeshift ovens. Nowadays, though, bibingka can be made in the more conventional ovens.
Among the appetizer recipes at Lutongbahay.com is Achara (Philippine-style pickles). This is commonly made from unripe green papayas, but there are also versions using other ingredients such as ubod ng niyog (coconut tree pith) and bamboo shoots. Among the vegetable recipes are Bulanglang with various Philippine vegetables, and very spicy Bicol Express using Philippine labuyo (hot red chili).
Among the soup recipes is Batangas Bulalo (bone with marrow). This is one of the most famous and most loved Filipino recipes, despite its high cholesterol content.
Among the pasta recipes is Angel Hair Pasta with Tuyo (dried fish) Flakes. Pasta is not really a traditional Filipino dish but it has come to be a favorite and a mainstay on most tables. This variant uses tuyo or dried fish flakes, another Filipino favorite.
Among the beef recipes is Beef Caldereta. This is a very old Filipino recipe that has never lost its popularity. Among the chicken recipes are Adobong Manok sa Gata (chicken adobo in coconut milk), a variation on the famous Chicken Adobo. Among the pork recipes are Boneless Crispy Pata (Pork Leg), just as good as the legendary Filipino lechon (whole pig roasted over hot coals) but easier to do.
Among the fish recipes is Boneless Daing na Bangus (fried marinated milkfish) which every Filipino household has in its regular menu. Among the other seafood recipes is Adobong Pusit (squid adobo), of course complete with squid ink which gives it its distinctly Filipino flavor.
Among the recipes for desserts and delicacies is Halo-Halo. This is the Filipino version of a milk and crushed ice dessert that is common in Asia. In the Philippines, it includes camote (sweet potato), saba (plantain bananas), ripe langka (jackfruit) and various types of cooked beans previously cooked in syrup, ube halaya (purple yam jam), leche flan (milk flan) and crispy pinipig (native Philippine-style rice krispies).
