And we drink for any other reason.” Tagayan, or a drinking session in the Philippines, is always accompanied by pulutan, or little snacks, often on sticks, grilled, fried, or spicy. Pulutan comes from the word pulot, to pick up or grab, because it was meant to be eaten in between drinks. Join Jay Guerrero in class to sip beer and cook some of his favorite drinking food: pork sisig (crispy pork belly with vinegar, chili, and egg); tuna kinilaw (cured albacore tuna with coconut, cherry tomato granita, lime, and chili); and oyster mushroom tocino (mushrooms glazed in soy, garlic, and brown sugar).
