Celebrating the day the word “adobo” was added to the Oxford English Dictionary back in 2007, Google launched a Google Doodle highlighting the classic Filipino dish, adobo. The latest celebration of an important occasion, person, or thing from the search engine was illustrated by artist Anthony Irwin.
Irwin noted that in his illustration of a chicken adobo Google Doodle he “tried to capture that simple childhood joy of leaning in and savoring the kind of food that makes home feel like home.”
Indigenous to the Philippines, the adobo cooking method is closely tied to the pre-colonial peoples of the country. Out of necessity, the indigenous cooked or prepared food with vinegar and salt to preserve them in the tropical climate. Adobo commonly involves meat, seafood, or vegetables marinated in vinegar, soy sauce, garlic, bay leaves, and black peppercorns, which are then browned in oil, and simmered in the marinade. It is also commonly considered the unofficial national dish of the Philippines
