Food Quote: COMFORT


“Food is the most primitive form of comfort” ~ Sheila Graham

Everyone has their own form of comfort food. This one is mine. What is it? We simply call it ‘dinengdeng’ and it is a soupy stew of vegetables flavored with ‘bagoong’ (fish sauce). Everytime I have this dish, it takes me back to my childhood and it never fails to remind me of family and the comfort they bring.

About Jeanette Moore (JMom)

I am a terrible housekeeper but I do love to cook so it all evens out in the end. I like to try new recipes that I think my family will like. However, I am not one to follow all recipes to the letter. I tend to tweak and change the recipes based on what I have on hand and how I am feeling at the time. Feel free to share your versions, I just might try it out next time I make the dish again.

    Wow – your dinengdeng look so, so good! I’ve always loved Filipino dishes. I am an Ilocano and I always love this dish. It is one of the favorites among of the people in northern part of the Philippines. Thank very much you for sharing.
