Chorizo. One of the most loved Filipino breakfast. I miss this so much! Good thing that I was able to attend the Barrio Fiesta last Sunday and was able to buy some of these.
Barrio Fiesta is one of the yearly Filipino gatherings here in Germany. This year, it celebrated in advance, the Philippine Independence Day held in Dietzenbach, Germany, which was attended by the Vice-President of the Philippines, Jejomar Binay. Vice-President Jejomar Binay visited here to further promote Philippine-German bilateral relations and to sustain the momentum created by the earlier exchange of visits between Secretary Albert del Rosario and German Foreign Minister Guido Westerwelle.
On this celebration, there were booths that served Filipino foods. You can name it, Filipino Barbecue, Halo-halo, Kare-kare, Chorizo, Menudo, Tocino and etc. There were also a lot of meryenda foods like sapin-sapin, puto, kutsinta, mani and many more. This is where I bought my chorizo. This is ofcourse prepared here in Germany but then using Filipino recipe. Chorizo-making has a long tradition in the Philippines, with each region having its own specialty. While longanizas are fresh sausages, there are also cured sausages in the Philippines called chorizos.
I would like to prepare it myself in the near future, since it is not only expensive to buy but also not readily available for delivery. I think I will check the recipes online and then try to experiment the taste and then I will also share it here Though there are a lot of different types of sausages available here in Germany, sometimes, the taste of chorizo from home is something I like to have.
