Cooking With Bamboo

    Hi guys! :)

    I would just like to share an old style way of cooking food here in the Philippines without the need for pots or pans. You just need a bamboo branch to be able to cook food. The bigger branches are preferred for this way of cooking. This is a good way of cooking a meal if you ever camp in a bamboo rich area and you did not bring any kind of cooking utensils with you.

    Here is a link with the instructions and pictures on how you could create a good meal using bamboo:

    In my youger years, I had experienced cooking food in bamboo cylinders. Rice is also cooked the same way over an open fire. With the birds that we shot, we would cook it in sour broth and some edible leaves for garnishing. Last year, we went to a place called Subic where there is a restaurant that serves food cooked in reminiscent of my experience in the forest.

    Hello Alexandoy, we have another person on here from the Philippines I think that would be Gracer. Funny how you two would talk about cooking with bamboo. Must be a thing in your area. Welcome.

    I heard it before and I've seen some cooked using Bamboos when my hubby and I went to Ilocos. I was amazed by how they cooked using bamboos and palayok. I would want to try that one day although I think it's a bit hard since I am used to cooking using stove.
