Kakanin: An Illustrated Guide
Can you tell one sticky treat from another?
(SPOT.ph) Kakanin are sweet Filipino delicacies that double as snacks and/or desserts depending on your mood. Reflecting one of the principal livelihoods of the Philippines, most kakanin are based on rice or root crops mixed with some derivation of coconut. It's impressive how Filipinos can creatively interpret these two main ingredients in a variety of ways.
