This menu is inspired by some of my mom's recipes along with a trip I took to the Bicol Province in the Philippines. The Bicolano cuisine is primarily noted for the prominent use of chili peppers and coconut milk in the dishes. This meal will be reminiscent of some of the flavors and dishes that remind me of my mom's cooking and my time spent in the Philippines.
