Filipino Foodie

August 21st, 2010 · No Comments · cooking

About a month ago I had the opportunity to volunteer/eat Filipino food fabulously paired with a variety of wine at a taste testing event organized by Six Taste, a food tour company in L.A. that takes foodies into restaurants off the beaten path.

Kababayan L.A., a locally produced TV program that highlights Filipino newsmakers and events, was there to highlight the event since it was a first for the area. That night I was behind the adobo drumettes serving station pouring wine for everyone when I noticed the show’s host, Janelle So, in the crowd interviewing people. Before I knew it she stuck the microphone in my face to pick my brain about my pairing. And of course, who am I to turn down a chance in front of the camera to promote a great concept?

Definitely not as well versed in wine-ology as I’d like to be, but I think I did a decent job. My interview comes on around the 1:42 mark.

Somelier Santos Uy carefully paired wines from his Downtown L.A. wine bar/lounge, Mignon, for the six dishes on display. For the adobo he picked a Cabernet Sauvignon called Canale Grande. Very dry, very good! If you like good dry red wine, I’d highly recommend this one.
