Food Lust: James Burn’s bellychon

bellychon

Have you been caught in a situation where you want to eat a photo? Seducing me to no end is this rolled whole pork belly glutted with the most essential Ilocano aromatic bulbs and secret indigenous spices. To the eye, moist and sweet fragrant meat encased in teary crackled skin. Yet to be available in Laoag next week (?!)… I died a little inside.

I’m excited to see and taste more of culinary school grad James’s burning ambition.

It’s the perfect feast for my coming birthday! Can’t wait really!

It’s not too expensive like you think. For inquiries, PM James Burn here.

FoodPrints with Sandy Daza Across Bulacan in 5 Days

Suman

What’s Sandy Daza up to these days? He’s just added a new dimension to his love of food. The credible and respected chef and food columnist explores the country’s nooks and crannies for gastronomic experiences worth sharing via the food travelogue series FoodPrints about to air on the Lifestyle Network on Sept. 21, 8:30 PM.

Chef Sandy Daza

In the Bulacan episodes, be prepared to get fired up with the Bulakeño way of preparing exotic oysters straight from the Pamarawan oyster farms. What’s more? The best of the province’s carinderia fare and pasalubong stores, pork  like no other else and  heritage dishes threatened by time. Chef Sandy will also take you to the indigenous kakanin makers. And surely, Bulacan is not the same without the sweets. There’s more to the local cuisine than meets the eye.
