Crispy pata (crispy pork knuckles) and kare-kare (creamy beef stew with peanut sauce) are probably two of the most popular dishes in the Philippines and my favorites.
I remember enjoying these two wonderful dishes as a child during Christmas, new year festivities, family reunions and other family celebrations.  I have a happy emotional association with crispy pata and kare-kare.
That’s what came to mind when I searched inside trying to think of a title that’s very Filipino for the collection of articles about adventure, food and travel in the Philippines.
I hope that childhood happy emotional association will live on with the weekly articles here. Have fun!
