As a child, Edwin's mom told him, "If you want to eat, you should cook it yourself." And that's exactly what he's been doing ever since.

Chicken Soup from the Phillipines

Tinolang manok is a savory chicken soup from the Phillipines. For me, it brings back memories of home, as my mother used to make it for me whenever I was sick. The primary ingredients consist of chicken, ginger, fish sauce, and unripened papayas. The green papayas have roughly the same look and texture as chayote squash, but you can also substitute any vegetables you like in this recipe.
