Adobo Is One of Bon Appétit's Greatest Recipes of All Time
Filipino food is really having its moment.
(SPOT.ph) Filipino food has been everywhere this year, and here’s another reason to celebrate: our very own chicken adobo earns a spot as one of Bon Appétit’s Greatest Recipes of All Time. In an article published on October 17, assistant food editor Amelia Rampe talks about her long-standing love affair with the Philippines' unofficial national dish. Her story is one that resonates with many of our own experiences—seeking solace in adobo for dinner; celebrating with adobo at Filipino gatherings; and, of course, going back for that much-needed extra cup of rice.
It’s definitely not adobo’s first time to gain worldwide recognition—it’s been featured in full-fledged publications such as the New York Times, even raved about by ‘domestic goddess’ Nigella Lawson herself during her visit to the Philippines earlier this year. But to us Filipinos, adobo is a humble nod to tradition, and it’s a classic for a reason: dressed up at a restaurant or decked down at home, it never goes out of style.
