Make your own mustard, you will be amazed how easy it is.
When you are cooking certain things must be in place. Like you would never start a cooking without having salt and pepper ready and here in the philippines the holy trinity "Garlic, Onion and ginger" is also a must and not
to forget soya sauce.
In this section i will give you some idea to make your own little side dishes, compliments and garnish. For me that's as important as salt and pepper. It enhances the whole experience of the dish you serve. Just imagine a deep
fried chicken served with plain rice; its okay but not what we would call a gastonomic succes - but then add a homemade "pickled papaya salad and a little sweet and sour dipping sauce" which for sure will change the whole dinner experience.
other stuff we purchase in glass and jars when we shop in the local super marked for a "good" peso like mustard, peanut butter, sun dried tomatoes etc. Lots of it is so simple to make at home and you can put your own "twist" on the finished product.
