The longganisang macau (yes, this is vegan, not vigan, longganisa) reminded me of the sausages I had at the streets of Taiwan when I travelled with my mom and dad. I have forgotten about the taste of this altogether, not because I became vegan, but because it's been more than half a lifetime ago since I visited the country.
The fetuccini carbonara is the very first dish I cooked in my life. This was during my pre-vegan days. I lived in Beijing then and the first dish I cooked was a smashing success according to my then-boyfriend. I loved the dish myself though. So to have a vegan version of it readily available is just amazing! The veggie ham that came with it reminded me of salami sandwiches I'd have at home when I was a kid.
