Cook Notes for Last-Minute Entertaining

Welcome to the Abueli Blog! The Abueli Cook Notes series is a collection of simple menu items that we all know and have probably made multiple times before. As a home concierge, we've added photos, price estimates, and have tried to limit shopping to one location. We've also added a second sheet in Filipino.

The main highlights of these posts are the printable instructions that an older child or home cook can easily follow. This allows the designated chef to shop and prepare while you attend to work or take time to relax (or participate in the classic Filipino pastime: being stuck in traffic).

Naming inspiration for this series has come from the similar sounding notes by Cliff's or Barron's. We hope these posts help you as much as Cliff and Barron have helped us.

Only three items are needed, two if you don't use white wine. Chistorra can remain in the fridge or freezer, ready for when you need it. It's good on its own, with bread, or even with garlic rice for a breakfast "chis-si-log".

Instructions below are for oven-cooking, but if the oven isn't available, pan frying is also an option.

Please click on the sheet you need:

Thank you for reading though our blog! We'll be posting Cook Notes for artichoke dip and an antipasti shopping list in the next few days.
