Lechon is Best Pork Ever! - TIME Magazine

Author: admin // Category: , , ,
The timing of giving worldwide concern over swine flu absolutely gives a bad impression and unsuitability but I could not resist in giving my full attention to this one. It also seems not even a possible outbreak of the said flu could stop TIME Magazine from saying that “LECHON”, a Philippine pork delicacy, is the Best Pork on its Best of Asia Lists of 2009.
They mention that Anthony Bourdain’s pronouncement that he had just eaten “The Best Pig, Ever” in Cebu has only cemented our national view that we make a pretty darned good roast pig. For the information of everybody, Bourdain is a celebrity TV chef and has a famous travel-food show “No Reservations”.
"Many viewers were as surprised by the hyperbole as by the country he situated it in. But not Filipinos, among whom the zenith of porky perfection is an indisputable fact. It was just a matter of time before the rest of the world found out," said TIME writer Lara Day on the magazine's write-up.
Day went on to describe how the delicious delicacy is prepared with a variety of stuffings and spices, and eventually cooked slowly over a coal-fire until it is golden brown and crispy on the outside and juicy on the inside. "You could call it the Platonic ideal of a pig, but it's doubtful if Plato, or even an entire faculty of philosophers, could have imagined anything so exquisite," she wrote.
Mabuhay! and Kudos to the Philippines, for the pride of having a well known delicacy like lechon.

This is one thing that we should be proud of being a Pinoy, the LECHON. Even my French friends nung magbakasyon sila sa Pinas, naglaway talaga sila sa lechon at nagbaon pa pagbalik nila dito sa Doha. kahit na ako, tuwing may kakiolalang pabalik dito from Manila laging nagpapabili ako ng lechon from Monterey - I LOVE IT.

Thanks for the post bro.
