Popular Filipino Merienda Recipes for Homebased Business

Merienda is a Spanish word that refers to a light meal usually taken in between lunch and dinner. The Spaniards introduced this kind of repast to the Filipinos who adopted the habit later on. From then on, the Filipino merienda became an equivalent of the American coffee break or the English afternoon tea.

Although merienda appears to be a borrowed concept, eating and the fondness for food and preparing the dishes have always been considered a part of the Filipino culture. We have our own Filipino delicacies such as puto, bibingka, kutsinta, suman and many others that we usually eat in between our regular daily meals. These Pinoy favorites are usually eaten together with tea or any other beverage. (source: www.trc.dost.gov.ph)
