MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – The Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) is very serious about its initiative to set a national standard for cooking adobo and other Filipino dishes.
Case in point. The Adobo Chronicles publisher was subpoenaed by DTI for posting a photo of his newly-found concoction of adobo. No, not pork, not chicken, not squid, not even vegetable adobo. Rather, rabbit meat adobo.
Our publisher was asked to appear in person at the DTI headquarters to explain why he shouldn’t be penalized for a possible violation of the yet-to-be-set national adobo standard.
This is a developing story.
