And guess what??? My entry was accepted!!!
There are 34 entries but on March 5 KMOV will narrow it down to 10. These 10 entries will further be narrowed down to 4 (voting American Idol style... hmmm if I get to to the top 10 will you vote for me???) The top 4 contestants will have to compete live on TV to be named STL's Best Chef on Primetime TV and a free trip for 2 to the Dominican Republic.
Filipino food is not as popular as other Asian cuisine such as Thai, Vietnamese or Indian. So my goal is to make Filipino food accessible to a broader audience. Having said that, what I shared in the video is a very basic, 5 ingredient recipe: chicken wings adobo. I wanted to put my STM take on it but due to time constraints, I wasn't able to do so. But I'm going to share it here with you below. But first let me invite you to watch my video.
Here's the traditional way to eat our adobo:
And here's my take on it:
What I basically did was to lightly coat the adobo with flour and deep fried it (you could also bake it for a healthier option). Then I made a yogurt wasabi dip by mixing tiny chopped cucumber, chopped scallions, yogurt and a tiny bead of wasabi paste. Mix them all together and put a dollop on each wing...
This was the plate I made for my cameraman... to say thank you for all his help... and putting up with my craziness... LOL!
