Yema, a Spanish Influence

Yema, are you one of the influences of the Spaniards?

Philippines has been colonized by the Spaniards for more than 300 years. Their influence to us is very evident in our beliefs, economics and politics. The have introduced their Religion, Christianity,  their government and their love for food.

Philippines strongest culinary influence is from Spain which ruled the Philippines for almost 400 years. Food historians claim that 80 per cent of Philippine dishes are of Spanish origin. Because the Spaniards formed the elite, dishes adapted by upper-class Filipinos were also Spanish-inspired. Some of the prominent dishes that Filipinos have adapted are Lechon, puchero, fabada, paella, morcon, embutido, leche flan, churros and yema.

Yema is a sweet custard confectionary from the Philippines. It is made with egg yolks, milk, and sugar. The name yema is from Spanish for “egg yolk”. Like other egg yolk-based Filipino desserts, it is believed that yema originated from early Spanish construction materials. They are then shaped into small balls or pyramids and covered in white sugar.
