Anna Olson features PH in new food show
The Philippines truly has a unique cuisine on its own that can be at par with international cuisines.
Renowned food show host and professional pastry chef Anna Olson went around Asia in her new TV show, Asian Food Channel’s Inspired with Anna Olson.
The show features Anna’s gastro-adventures through different places in Asia.
The Philippines was featured in the show premiere, chef Rob Pengson shows how three local recipes are cooked including Squab Inasal, Kinilaw and Tochino di Cielo. Inspired by Rob’s cooking techniques, Anna utilizes an affordable and known poultry cut to recreate Maple BBQ Chicken Wings. For the meal’s sweet glaze, she adds maple syrup, a Canadian favorite to instill sweetness on the meal.
“I have been so grateful to my AFC viewers for the support and interest they’ve had in my baking and cooking over the years. The making of Inspired with Anna Olson has been a phenomenal experience for me. It has deepened my respect for Asia’s diverse and deeply-rooted cultures. This is my opportunity to connect by sharing my sense of appreciation and wonder at the new cuisines and dishes I’ve been able to explore, across so many countries.
The flavors from the region are so varied and intense, yet at the same time, so humble and heartwarming. I hope that viewers enjoy the show as much as I have had in making it,” the host said.
She should definitely visit other islands in the Philippines for a complete Philippine food experience!
