Purple Corn but it looks more black than purple. I wonder how it taste?
Locally made wines

Our own black and red rice.
First heard of this with my officemate and I saw it being used in one of the cooking tv show. Wonder how sour it is.

CASSIA or KALINGAG BARK
We used to have so many asinan in Noveleta along Lido and Villamar Resort now the industry is dead and so are the resorts. Sign of changing times.
One of the many booths of Coco Products
Yes one of the oldest distillery in the Philippines. If only more FIlipinos will patronize our local products.

And there is also a book @P500 about Philippine Culinary Culture.
This was during the Coco Craze at the Food Tunnel
Some of the coco products food samples. It was a bit chaotic and stressful inside the tunnel full of people.
And here some of the other free food samples I savored.
There is a duty free mascot who gamely posed.
One of the famous local Chef Jessie Sincioco no further introduction needed. Na miss ko bigla Secrets of the Masters ng QTV11.
