Salmon Terrine
by Sa Hapag ng Mga Bayani

GMA News TV presents “Sa Hapag ng mga Bayani,” a two-part feature on the traditional dishes once enjoyed by our national heroes. Hosted by Youth Ambassador for the National Commission for Culture and the Arts Dingdong Dantes, the special uncovers the stories behind select heirloom recipes from significant periods in our nation’s history.

The independence of the Philippines was declared on the porch of the mansion of General Emilio Aguinaldo in Cavite on June 12, 1898. After several months, the declaration was sealed by the Malolos Congress. It was then followed by a fancy feast now known as the Malolos Banquet. The Malolos Banquet was attended by several prominent personalities of our first government including the great-grandfather of the prominent chef, Chef Gene Gonzalez. Thus Chef Gene tried again to cook the French dish prepared in Malolos Banquet.
