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.

In Filipino cuisine, we often add olives to our dishes, such as this kaldereta recipe. In particular, we often like to use the Spanish olives stuffed with pimentos, aka pimientos (non-spicy cherry peppers). My dad loved pimento-stuffed olives, so he always looked for them in these dishes. Filipino pantries are always well-stocked with these bottled olives. They should be available in your local grocery or Asian and Hispanic stores, or you can order them online.
