DAGUPAN CITY- Former Senator Juan Miguel “Migz” Zubiri said the bangus (milkfish) produced in this city is incomparable to those produced in the other Asian countries.

Zubiri who was in this city last April 25 to grace the 101 Ways to cook Bangus held at the Peoples’ Astrodome, said bangus, especially the belly part, is his favorite. “Pag sinabing Dagupan bangus, nauubos kaagad sa palengke.”

“There is something special in Dagupan bangus. It is tasty and delicious. Maybe this is due to the system of raising them in the fishponds,” he said.

The 101 Ways to Cook Bangus was participated in by amateur chefs of Pangasinan.

The traditional recipes of cooking bangus like grilling, “kilawen”, paksiw and sinigang took a backseat, and instead modern recipes were cooked and presented by the chefs.

The first part of the competition consisted of “Bangusan” in which the participating chefs cooked bangus in three parts: soup, salad or appetizer and the main entrée. These were judged by renowned chefs like Rosebud Benitez of GMA 7, young actor Stephen Silva of GMA Talent Center and resident chef master Micael Caffrey of Senor Tesoro School of Culinary Arts in Calasiao town.

Selected famous local chefs of Pangasinan joined them.

“ It’s amazing that our participants came up with new recipes. The chefs cooked he recipes with passion and presented them artistically in plates,” Caffrey said.

The second part of the competition was the cooking of talakitok, lapulapu and oyster.

Like the recipes in bangus, the participating chefs came up with new recipes.

Winners in the competition on every category were awarded P5,000 for the first prize, P3,000 for the second prize and P2,000 for the third prize. The over-all winner took home P10,000 cash prize.

All the recipes produced from the contests will be part of a coffee table book on “ Ways How to Cook Bangus” which will be published and launched by the city government of Dagupan City this year.
