Bagoong Festival 2017

 

 みなさん、こんにちは!

オンライン英会話のパロッツ君です ;-)

 

日本では、まだまだ肌寒い日々が続いているとは思いますが

雨期も終盤のフィリピンではすっかり暖かくなり、

イベントの目白押しです!

 

そして今回パロッツ君の先生たちが訪れたイベントはこちら ;-)

Bagoong or salted fish paste is one of the most popular condiments in the Philippines. It is used as a dipping sauce for countless food such as grilled bangus or as gifts to relatives both locally and abroad.

 Here are Teachers Hanna, Marilyn and Misty to show us the highlights of this year’s most awaited event in Lingayen. :-)

Behind them are some members of street dancing participants who are preparing for their performance.  :-D

 

 

 The bagoong manufacturing process begins with mixing measured amounts of fish, shrimp and brine. The blend is then kept and fermented up to 12 months until bubbles form and begins to waft its characteristic strong odor. The bagoong then will be put in a bottle and will be prepared to sell in the market.

Bagoong festival is one way of Lingayenenses of thanking God for the success of the bagoong industry for it has been the source of their livelihood. The first Bagoong Festival was held in April 2011. It was later on moved to January as part of Lingayen’ fiesta celebration.Bagoon2017-3

Bagoon2017-5Because bagoong is the pride of our town, Lingayen, these participants didn’t mind the heat. Bagoong Festival only happens once a year, so they better give it all.

 

 

 

Bagoong made in Pangasinan, especially in the capital town of Lingayen, has long been regarded as the best bagoong in the Philippines due to its great taste and aroma. :-)

Bagoon2017-6On your next trip to Philippines, we recommend you to try our bagoong. We bet you would enjoy it as much as we do!

 

See you in Lingayen! ;-)

いかがでしたか?

お魚やエビを発酵させて作るソース “Bagoong”

塩気が強いため、お塩の代わりに使われることも多いそうなので

フィリピンの家庭料理には欠かせない隠し味なのかもしれませんね ;-)

 

フィリピンでは、日本と同じようにご飯を主食としているため

ご飯に合うお料理がたくさんあります :-)

フィリピン料理に興味がある方はレッスンで「お料理」を取り上げて

日本食との比較をしてみるのも楽しいかもしれませんよ ;-)
