Learn how to make sisig and the trick to cooking perfect rice
October is Filipino History month so it makes perfect sense to learn how to cook Filipino-inspired dishes from Chef Phillip Esteban.
The second installment in the EdibleSD@Home cooking series, Filipino Cooking with Chef Phillip will take place on October 20, starting at 6pm. You’ll learn how to make one entrée and one side dish from Esteban, plus cooking hacks and his trick for making the perfect rice. The main dish will be a vegetarian version of the Filipino dish sisig, a flavorful combination of wood ear mushrooms, crispy tofu, peppers, onions, and pickles on top of garlic fried rice. The side dish will be a Filipino take on the classic Tijuana Caesar Salad.
