Corioso |


In the 17th century, Catbalogan was the center of power during the Spanish colonial era. What could they have been eating back then?

Vignettes of the past unfurl a diversity of artisanal cookies such as corioso—pure art at first sight with swirling patterns made out of the sculpted wooden mold.

They are handcrafted individually by placing the dough in the cast and manually pressed to carve the design—such a joy to discover that this age-old tradition is still breathing with life in this digital area.

Embark on a food trip in Catbalogan and marvel at the flavors of heritage cookies.
