One of the best things about travelling has got to be the new food we get to try. Even though we cannot travel right now, there are plenty of traditional recipes from all around the world that we can replicate in the comfort of our own home. To help you get the most authentic and incredible recipe to try at home, we’ve teamed up with celebrity personality Chef Bob, who will share his recipes for some of his favourite dishes from around the region. Join us as we bring the food to your screen.
Did you catch Chef Bob making his Thai Fish Maw Salad last episode? If you haven’t, travel to Thailand for a quick run and come back here, where we will bring you to the Philippines to cook a quintessentially pinoy dish, Chicken Adobo.
Comforting, simple to make and perfect with white rice, the Chicken Adobo is a fond staple of the Filipinos. Try this recipe in the comfort of your own home.
