Pinakbet by Llana Postcard

The postcard shows an oil on paper canvas painting by Dindo Llana entitled Pinakbet. No information was found regarding the artist. I also couldn't find additional information (size) about the painting nor its location (private collection or museum).

Pinakbet Postcard

The postcard shows the Pinakbet recipe in the Ilocano dialect (the third most-spoken language in the country), the ingredients and how to cook it. Pinakbet or pakbet is a popular Ilocano dish. The original Ilocano pinakbet uses bagoong, of fermented monamon or other fish, while further south, bagoong alamang is used. The basic vegetables used in this dish include native bitter melon, eggplant, tomato, ginger, okra, string beans, lima beans, chili peppers, parda and winged beans.
