This coming Sunday, Season 3 of the top-rating FoodPrints food travelogue show of Chef Sandy Daza is premiering at 8 PM on the Lifestyle Network. Baguio was exciting even behind the scenes. Before I leave tomorrow for yet another FoodPrints shoot, here are more photos from Iloilo. But Iloilo is so photographable, so expect more in the days to come. I haven’t even posted all the food we experienced.
I also had my own personal discoveries like the KBL, dinuguan and kilawin of Breakthrough, puto lanson (cassava puto), a great gelato place at the Plazuela de Iloilo, BongBong’s piaya from my fellow blogger and friend Asunta, and I regret not buying more pastries from the Panaderia de Iloilo. Their hojaldres and rosquetes are super and the goat milk barquillos are better than your average barquillos. And how can one ever forget Maridel’s?
Aside from century-old recipes, Iloilo is known for heritage churches. Chef Pauline, Chef Sandy Daza’s guest, had a cooking demo right in front of the Molo Church. If you didn’t catch my Jaro Church post, here’s the link. The province is also known for a string of grand festivals. We caught the energy of the Paraw Regatta dance competition, but Dinagyang is still the grandest of them all, says our guide.
Many thanks to our wonderful hosts and tour guides.
