Chef Robby's Porchetta With a Filipino Twist

Few days ago one of Kwento Ni Toto's correspondent was able to be part of the group that Chef Robby introduced and have a taste of his entry for the Manila Food and Wine Festival which is called Porchetta which is an Italian dish but what make it interesting is that Chef Robby put a Filipino twist in it.

Chef Robby will present his take on Porchetta, which is usually referred to as the "Italian pulled pork" made of savory, fatty and moist boneless pork roast of Italian Culinary Tradition, spice with garlic, rosemary, fennel and other herbs.  Chef Robby puts a Filipino twist in this Italian dish by using the Pinoy's well love lechon, spice and dressed with caramelized onions and arugula leaves to suit the Pinoy taste.

"This version of the Porchetta in a way brings together two worlds of culinary tradition - the Italian spiced pulled pork in a sandwich and the Pinoy's well-celebrated Lechon. We serve the Porchetta in a freshly baked bun with potato wedges to make it a complete sandwich meal that is very tasty and filling", said Chef Robby.  "We know how Filipinos love lechon, the Porchetta now comes as another way for us to enjoy our lechon," adds Chef Robby.

The Porchetta, served as the Italian Roast Pork Sandwich, will be Chef Robby's offering at his Orange Truck at the Food Truck Challenge, which will be the kick-off event of The Manila Food and Wine Festival 2013. The Food truck Challenge will pit some of the best Filipino Chefs to test their culinary prowess, skill and food creation in a fun yet fierce battle for culinary honor. Battle ground is at the SM Mall of Asia complex, Block 12.

The Manila Food and Wine Festival 2013 carries the theme Cooking Revolution and is geared towards positioning Filipinos as Global Culinary Revolutionists. It is only in the Philippines where every other person you meet either cooks great food, peddles fantastic dishes, or loves terrific treats with or without occasions to speak of,

So, does my correspondent liked the food?  Well, I'm pretty sure he was stuffed well enough and I can really noticed a grin on his face.
