Duman: The Green Gold of Pampanga at Butchie’s Recipes

Duman! Duman! Get Some Before It's All Gone!

Imagine a variety of grain that is planted only in a couple of weeks in select rice paddies in only a couple towns in Pampanga then harvested as the cool breeze of the holiday months sweep the rice fields. Processing this grain is a colourful undertaking in itself–from harvesting in early dawn, to winnowing, toasting and pounding to remove the chaff. For every hectare planted with this special variety yields a mere 4.5 cavans of grain while a harvest of the normal variety of rice yields up to 300 cavans.

Due to the limited harvest quantity, which was fortunately spared by the typhoons that hit Central Luzon, the demand for duman is much greater than the supply. However, despite its rather steep price, those who’ve enjoyed it vouch that it is worth every grain. It may be consumed by itself, rather like breakfast cereal, or taken with steaming gatas damulag (carabao milk) or tsokolate de batirol (frothy native chocolate).

Butchie’s Recipes of La Moderna Pampanga along Wilson Street Greenhills shares this prized delicacy in limited quantities to residents of the metropolis. Together with La Moderna’s artisan bakery products as well as other carefully selected food and non-food products from Pampanga, Butchie’s aims to share with everyone the best Pampanga has to offer. Native chocolate and the tsokolatera and baritol are also available.

Open 8am-730pm Mondays to Saturdays and for special evening and Sunday occasions upon prior notice. Tel (63 2) 385 0387 or mobile +63 917 844 7593.

Carmina Villaroel and Her Show Day Off at Butchie's Recipes

video

Talented actress, model and TV show host Carmina Villaroel recently shot a segment of their Father's Day episode at Butchie's Recipes of La Moderna Pampanga.

Capping the signature day off of spa pampering, a hardworking vocal coach and his cute daughter were treated to a Filipino-Capampangan meal at Butchie's Recipes.

Dinner menu was the restaurant's signature beef calitiran, bulanglang na bangus (which Carmina loved!) and okoy. Dessert was ebun buro (red egg) ice cream and buco cheese pandan sherbet.

Carmina found the frozen tinapang tilapia unique and bought all of our stock! Thank you QTV, Carmina and Allane!
