“Food photographer Tinee de Guzman’s absolute love of food led him to go where no one in his family went—the backyard, where he installed his own brick oven so he can slow-roast herb-stuffed suckling pigs to crisp perfection. Tinee chooses the babes in the city himself, breastfed for barely a month, making for the juiciest and tenderest cochinillo that you can cut with a plate like they do in Spain.
“Craving lechon but can’t finish the whole pig? Get the next best thing. This bronzed cochinillo promises fall-off-the-bone lean meat, made moist by hours of cooking inside a brick oven. The Babi Guling on the other hand, borrows the flavors of Bali, stuffing the suckling pig with a mix of ginger, turmeric, coriander, and chili, thus turning this spectacle into a spicy slice of bliss.”
