Tablea the focus in Maximum Foodie

FOR MANY Filipinos, the best form of chocolate is tsokolate, a thick, velvety, piping hot beverage that’s been a staple in traditional Filipino breakfasts and a hallmark of many Filipinos’ childhood. The main ingredient of tsokolate is tablea, made of 100% fermented pure cacao that is roasted and ground before being molded into balls or tablets. Asian Food Network host Sashi De learned more about tablea during his trip to the country on Maximum Foodie, which premieres on Aug. 15, 10 p.m. Learn about the “never-before-told” tale of cacao in the Philippines and recipes that can be made with it on Maximum Foodie which airs on the Asian Food Network, available on Sky Cable CH 248, Cignal TV CH 62, and Destiny Cable CH 22.
