Last Saturday, four Filipino food bloggers were featured on the "Kapuso Mo, Jessica Soho" television show on the GMA network in the Philippines.
Because of the time difference between Manila and the Burnt Lumpia Worldwide Headquarters in SoCal, I was asked to simply film myself cooking something for my blog in lieu of an actual interview with host Jessica Soho.
I gladly obliged to this request and decided to cook something that I thought would catch Pinoy viewers off guard: Bell Pepper Adobo (egads man, an adobo of vegetables?!!)!
Yup. Bell Pepper Adobo.
Of course, much of the footage I filmed was left out of the final show, so my Bell Pepper Adobo recipe will have to wait for another post (or perhaps another medium altogether...) for another time.
I am happy to say that despite much of my own footage being cut, the producers of the show managed to sneak in some existing Sasquatch-esque film of me cooking on The Manila Machine. Very cool, to say the least.
And if you missed the show, check out the video below. I'm featured at the 10:20 mark, but I urge everyone to watch the entire video to get a glimpse into the lives of the four different Filipino food bloggers. The video is all in Tagalog, btw, and because my Tagalog is spotty at best, I can only assume nice things were said about me;)
Many thanks to the kind folks at GMA, KMJS, as well as to MarketMan!
