My mom, Manang Soling was a woman hailed from Pangasinan. My culinary interest was probably, coming from her as I also use to see her experiment.
One of the most popular dish from this place was the pinakbet.
Pinakbet is another vegetable dish where the saltiness of the it came from the bagoong isda or fish paste.
My mom love to cook Pinakbet and she said, the style that she has been doing was the Pangasinense style with no saute way of cooking.
