Giveaway: Win a Lorins Christmas Gift pack this holiday season!

*Winners for this giveaway has been announced.

You must be familiar with Lorins, the name’s been around for ages. I grew up with Lorins patis (anchovy extract) around the house and I’m pretty sure most of you have, too.

The thing about us Filipinos is that we have a certain liking for rich-tasting dishes. We even pair already-cooked dishes with spices to enhance the flavor even more. For example, Kare Kare isn’t Kare Kare without Alamang to liven it up, and if you’re anything like me, you eat Sinigang with patis, haha!

We make eating a fun and enjoyable experience for all of us, agreed?

Natural flavor enhancers

Here in our home, we’ve let go of artificial flavor enhancers which can be a challenge. Yes, herbs are great, but they’re not usually used for Filipino dishes.

My husband was the one who introduced me to using patis and alamang to enhance the dishes we serve. He uses Alamang Guisado for sauteed dishes and Anchovy extract for Menudo and Afritada.

If he has his way, all our dishes will have Alamang Guisado or Anchovy Extract.

Lorins Alamang Guisado, the regular one, has been around since the 70’s, but the brand has rolled out two more exciting variants in 2015 — Sweet and Spicy.

There are a lot of Alamang Guisado sold in the market, but Lorins variants are comparably richer in texture and consistency than other brands.

Lorins Extra Virgin Anchovy Extract was introduced that same year. Have you tried it? I have and Menudo will never be the same again without it.

“Lorins Extra Virgin Anchovy Extract comes from first anchovy extract,” according to the information I’ve been given. It also has “12-14% protein content” which makes it more flavorful than its contenders.

Did you also notice it’s “extra virgin?”

At a recent cooking event, I’ve learned to associate the term “extra virgin” to salads. Aside from being a flavor enhancer for regular dishes, you can use it as a salad dressing, as well, among others.

  1. Every year I don’t really much have time on cooking our noche buena because of work. We usually end up buying ready meals. But this year, thankful that Christmas Day is on a weekend, its a great reason to finally prepare a decent meal for my family. I always wanted to learn how to cook Kare-Kare so I will pair it with Lorins Alamang Guisado! Just thinking of it makes me drool! Hoping to win!
