ABOUT US

Dancing and Deliciousness

Why Pandanggo? Growing up in the Philippines or in Milwaukee, Wisconsin was full of gatherings of families, formal occasions with various traditional attire, attending community events with diverse people, delicious foods and lively music. What I remembered the most was the heart of cooking each type of food prepared with love. The kitchen was always the center of our family. Dining together was sharing thoughts, history and recipes. Our mother was from Aritao, Nueva Viscaya in Northern Luzon, our Father was from Tacloban, Leyte of Visayan Islands. Half way was Manila, a metropolitan, busy and bustling city. Each side coming together formed a fusion of deliciousness. 

As children we grew up, dated and married cross culturally, adapting, infusing and developing recipes that blended or complement each other. The secrets were recipes handed down from each family. Thus, the flavors dance in the mouth with each gathering. Ingredients and recipes from The Philippines, Spain, Africa, Mexico, Peru, Egypt, India, Middle East, China, American Indian, and more were the flavors learned from each other!

Dancing was a passion growing up. Our mother taught us how to do the 50's style dances in the kitchen, our Aunts and Uncles would play special songs and danced in a loving embrace while cooking or after cooking to the sound of The Platters, The Beatles, Musical Soundtracks and more after the meals. 

If a person knew how to play a guitar as with many Filipinos in a gathering, there is a serenade or a group singing love songs and songs of the homeland. With the music was an array of snacks enough to be a major meal. No one left hungry. Most left full and sleepy!
