I learned how to cook after reading The Four Hour Chef by Tim Ferriss, I learned more dishes by reading a book on Greek Cuisine, Watching Jamie Oliver and Gordon Ramsay.
Over time people at work are asking me to bring extra food at the office and offered to pay me for the cost. Today I deliver salad, cookies and cheesecake to people at work. My interest level in cooking had increased that I now considered making money selling food. As you’ve seen my influences are not local so I still don’t know how to make Filipino food and recently my dad encouraged me to try it out.
How to Make Adobo:
Shorthand: Fry chicken until skin is browned, remove chicken, mix crushed, chopped garlic into the oil when about to turn golden brown mix in equal parts of soy sauce and vinegar simmer covered for 15 minutes or until well done.
It was so easy I couldn’t believe the end result was delicious. I enjoyed every bit of chicken
Variation: Baked Spicy Lemon Adobo Here’s how I think Jamie Oliver or Gordon Ramsey will do the dish.
The difference in this approach is you end up having the beautiful crispy skin on the chicken and the moist meat.
Note: Use a pan that is all metal so you can finish it in the oven.
Enjoy.Written on March 18th, 2014 by Kevin Olega
