Binamban and Linabok

This short movie about this food called Binamban is really heartwarming.It brings back memories of an almost forgotten childhood.

Once upon a time when I was young, mom and sometimes my late grandma used to make a delicacy that's almost similar to this, called Linabok. They'd grate banana, cassava, corn or a combination of those to make the cake. Then they'd wrap a small portion in a piece of banana leave, arranged the wrapped cakes in a steaming rack, and steamed them for an hour or so. Sweet without the use of processed sweetener, and aromatic without the use of artificial essence, this food is simply fantastic.

Having taken so many things for granted, I've never learned to make Linabok. Seeing Binamban makes me realize what I've missed. Now I'm going to put this in my next target list: learn to make Linabok from mom.

Watch the film...
