Filipino Lumpia

Day 217 of My Italian Learning Journal*

This afternoon my wife and I attended our school's first annual Family Fun Fest. There were activities for all ages, such as games, rides, international foods, music and more. We ate lumpias. They look a lot like egg rolls, but I had seen them sold as a Filipino dish before. This evening I surfed the Web and in a few minutes found that the origins of the lumpia dates back centuries, to the Chinese who originally wanted to create a meal with all the vegetables available in spring -- I had wondered why some varieties are called spring rolls. It is thought that Chinese immigrants from the Fujian province took the dish to Southeast Asia.

Ascolta Questo:
  • La lumpia filippina è un piatto gustoso.
    The Filipino lumpia is a tasty dish.
  • Le origini della lumpia risalgono a secoli fa, ai cinesi.
    The origins of the lumpia dates back centuries, to the Chinese.
  • Questo rotolo di uova contiene ingredienti tritati, come germogli di bambù, carote, germogli, pollo rasato, maiale o gamberetti.
    This egg roll contains chopped ingredients, such as 
    bamboo shoots, carrots, sprouts, shaved chicken, pork, or shrimp.
  • Una salsa di immersione agrodolce aggiunge più sapore.
    A sweet and sour dipping sauce adds more flavor.

Alla prossima!
