Simple Adobo Mashed Potato and Parmesan Cheese are a good combo! Try it and you’ll love it.
I love Kara David because, like me, she is such a foodie. I’m an avid fan of her show Pinas Sarap.
Her program doesn’t just show food — it also subconsciously feature the rich culture of the Philippines, that even to us, the Filipinos are not known. She also dares to eat even bizarre foods.
However, for me, the most interesting episode is when she features the Pambansang Ulam ng Pilipinas, which is adobo. A food historian revealed that the dish came from the word “adober,” which means “to marinate.”
The show also informed the people, that the Spanish version of the dish is called adobada.
Well, speaking of adobo, I was in the mood to cook it a few days ago. I was so in the mood, I even went to the grocery store to buy parmesan cheese and a few potatoes.
