Sunday Dinners are always special,
because dear old mom, who I've been bugging
to go into the food business for the longest time,
always surprises her family with a Michelin 3-star dish.

This past weekend was extra-special,
as she apparently snuck out my car and travelled
all the way to La Tienda in Makati to get authentic Spanish
Morcilla (blood sausage), Chorizo de Bilbao, and White Fava Beans
(plus chunks of aged ham hocks and/or pancetta)
and of course, Saffron, always Saffron,
to create a stupendous home-cooked gourmand's treat:

a stew sooo damn tasty, you'd have to sprinkle
a few drops of red wine vinegar on it to cut its richness!!!

Accompanied by a hearty Spanish red &
crusty hot-off-the-oven bread dipped in Extra Virgin Olive Oil,

this dish was way better than most of the versions
I've tried in MetroManila's Spanish Restaurants.

Thanks Mom!!!
