MANILA – The humble chicken adobo has been featured in the “Greatest Recipe of All Time” series of the American magazine Bon Appetit.

Other dishes currently included in the “Greatest Recipe of All Time” series are the Jewish braided bread challah, Korean braised short ribs, chili Colorado and Roquefort crackers, among others.

In an article published on Monday, Bon Appetit assistant food editor Amelia Rampe shared the recipe for chicken adobo that she grew up enjoying with her Filipino family, but with a few twists.

“I cannot remember a time when there wasn’t adobo in my life… I think it’s probably every Filipino kid’s first food love,” Rampe wrote. 

“No matter how you’ve prepared your adobo, there’s really no messing it up. That amazing fusion of soy, vinegar, garlic and pepper in every version is a winning formula,” she added. 

Last month, British culinary icon Nigella Lawson admitted to having an adobo obsession. She tried four kinds of adobo during her short visit to Manila – three of them in one night.
