Inabraw also known as Dinengdeng is a dish with Ilocano heritage and has been in the Isabeleños tables for generations. This year for the second time in a row, the Bambantin festival featured the dish through a cook off. Lead by the province’s first lady, seven contingents from different municipalities around the province cooked their way to the finals.
Inabraw is a fish dish with a medley of vegetables that are native to the northern part of the Luzon cooked in stew. The great thing about this competition is that participants are challenged to become creative with the form and presentation of the dish giving the food a new perspective and possibilities of maybe going global.
It was a tough time pressured competition but everyone was able to deliver. So without further delay here are the winners of the Inabraw cooking competition – the best Inabraw in Isabela.
