12 THINGS YOU SHOULD HAVE/DO FOR THE HOLIDAY SERIES #1: Have a Cochinillo

As someone who loves the -ber months, I am that person who is so excited to listen to Christmas/Advent songs and see people decorate their homes to feel the holiday spirit. And for some brands, especially coffee shops, it is the start of planner season. So starting today, I will be doing a post of the 12 things I do recommend this holiday season and some of the things I will be listing down are those that I personally do or personally love as well.

And guess what? I LOVE EATING!
(Want some proof? Check my Zomato Account to see how foodie I can be.)

I LOVE TO EAT but at the same time, I would love to experience the original taste of every International Cuisine out there without travelling abroad. One time, I was watching Chef Sandy Daza’s show and he was introducing this dish called Cochinillo. And after the show, I checked the internet where I can get a Cochinillo and the moment I saw the list of restaurants that serves it, I immediately paid a visit BUT I DID NOT HAVE THE SAME TASTE AS HOW IT WAS DESCRIBED BY CHEF SANDY DAZA. And I just went home disappointed.

However, God answers prayers. Hahaha!! Because last September 22, I finally had a Cochinillo that Chef Sandy Daza was sharing at his show. And I met the man behind Mr. Cochinillo during the bloggers’ night they hosted.

Mr. Tinee de Guzman is also a certified foodie just like me. He started taking photos of what he eats and it eventually became a passion that grew to another one — cooking for his family and loved ones. And last October 2012, Mr. Cochinillo bloomed out of his passion to cook.

We had a tour at Mr. Tinee’s humble kitchen and this pugon welcomed us.

Seafood Fiduea/Fideo – a dish that is similar to Paella but uses short noodles instead of rice, then cooked over a wood fire.
Do you see how crispy the skin is? REALLY CRISPY. No joke.
