These are some of the goodies I got at Eurobake in Guiguinto, Bulacan. They’re all old favorites, things you didn’t get on a regular basis because Eurobake used to be way out in the sticks. Then we moved to the same sticks but never really went around the province since all our activities were in the big city. The traffic made it an unpleasant trip too. But that has greatly improved with the upgrading of the North Luzon Expressway (NLEX).
The credit should go to Spouse though. I’ve been very lucky that I married Spouse, a non-Filipino. There’s always something new to learn about each other. I always meant to introduce him to various things about my country, even before we were married. Funny how one of the first things that came to mind was food. Food just brings up good memories and that’s what I want to share with this alien I married.
The top photo is a Malolos Ensaymada with the salted egg, cheese, butter and sugar topping. Next is the Inipit, a jelly roll gone awry with the egg custard filling squeezed in-between two layers. The third photo is Pastillas de Leche made with carabao milk – this is still my favorite Philippine dulce (sweet). The bottom photo are Cashew Tarts, tiny little jewels that Spouse likened to miniature pecan pies.
