This episode we chat with Regina Tolentino Newport, author of the book "Coconut Kitchen: Appetizers and Main Dishes" and founder of the Culinary Historians of the Philippines. We'll hear about her favourite recipes, what going to culinary school taught her, and find a sampling of regional coconut specialties across the Philippines.
When "The New Filipino Kitchen" book launch happens on the first weekend of the first nationally declared Filipino Heritage Month in bet I'm doing a whole episode on it! This episode I share clips from the book launch in Toronto and settle in for a panel chat with local restaurateurs and community leaders.
This episode we're diving into a book called "No Forks Given" by Yana Gilbuena. It's a collection of recipes from her 50 US state tour from 2014 to 2015 . Every week, Yana would hold a "pop-up" dinner featuring a kamayan (hands-only) feast of Filipino food. She'd find someplace to stay, someplace to shop, someplace to host her dinner and actually get people to attend - often within the week, with so much on the fly.
This episode, we chat about Filipino drinking food - called "pulutan" in Tagalog - with cookbook author Marvin Gapultos and some friends from the Pluma Writing Collective. I also finally threw the kind of dinner party I wanted - it ain't a real "inuman" session without the right drinking food!
This episode we chat with Jenn de la Vega, a New York-based cookbook author, editor, food stylist and caterer. We talk about cooking, eating, writing, why we especially love these 3 things, seeing our story in others and why nothing beats a classic Filipino "silog" with fried rice and a runny egg.
This episode we chat with Charlene Tan, who started the Good Food Community CSA (community supported agriculture) program with a small group of volunteers in 2010.
Alexandra Cuerdo is a California-raised, New York-based filmmaker. In this episode, we talk about Filipino restaurants, chefs and Filipino food culture in North America - and why community support is vital for the restaurants featured in her film.
There’s so much more to the story of carabaos - and their dairy - than meets the eye. This episode, we’re talking with Marie Cavosora, who founded a company called CalaBoo and leads a team of dairy entrepreneurs in the Philippines.
We're talking with Clang Garcia about her travel company, Jeepney Tours, and what it was like to collect stories and recipes from around the country to feature in this incredible guide. This episode is about my two great loves!
Cherrie Atilano is the founder of a social enterprise called AGREA, whose goals are to help eradicate poverty for farming and fishing families, alleviate the effects of climate change, and help establish food security in the Philippines. But how does a young Filipina farmer even begin to address those challenges?
