We were at the Food Expo at World trade Center last Sunday, Feb. 27. I love going to Expos and trade centers, because you get to discover new products, meet people and find stuffs that you are looking for but are hard to find. I have the report on the 10th Philippine Food Expo at my other blog site (gastronomybyjoy.com).
So blessed that we were able to buy foods for my daughter who is Type 1 Diabetic, and so much more at practically everything in factory price.
So when we got home ,I got so inspired to prepare a lot of dishes. Here are some.
Fried Milk Fish with Indian-mango Salsa
Coating mix for the fish:
Mix 1/4 c flout, salt, pepper, paprika, Majic Sarap seasoning powder,
chopped fresh basil leaves and a pinch of ground oregano.
Coat bangus belly and fry on high heat, then reduce to medium heat, Serve once fish is light brown.
Mama Sita's Soy-stir, about 1 Tbsp
Indian mangoes, chopped
ripe tomatos, chopped
2 leaves of basil, chopped
The finished product.
For Dessert, Chef Tony's Original Caramel and Cinnamon Popcorn
Soyami, Soya Chips with Green Apple Mayo Dip
in Pizza Flavor (red Chips) and White Cheese (White Chips)
Green Apple dip:
1/2 green apple, chopped
1 basil leaf, fresh and chopped
1 tsp olive oil
grated parmesan cheese
2 Tbsp mayonnaise
Just mix everything up!
The Basil plant, which I had for a along time at our rooftop, died, so I've been dying to go to Gourmet's Tagaytay to buy another one and take care and hopefully cultivate. But since I am so busy I can't have the pleasure to do so. Thank God, Gourmet's was one of the participant/retailers who was there. So I bought one.
Also, I got to buy the Bangus belly, the new Mama Sita's Soy-Stir Sauce, Chef Tony's buy-one-take one pack, Soyami Soya Chips .
We didn't only had fun at the expo but we were able to share in the bounty of our country's very own world class products!
