My dear friends Tess and William decided to bottle their delicious bagoong. Let me tell you, it is so delsih! They had to stop production to take care of family matters in the province, but hopefully soon, they wil be back in Manila and SOBEL’s BAGOONG will be back in the market.
Will, who is a good chef has amazing Filipino dishes up his sleeves. I asked him to cook his famous binagoongang talong for us at home so could document it for my blog. So here goes… Hope you try this at home, it’s so good!
Here we go….
