Our food and culture seminar last Saturday exceeded my expectations. We were quite a small number but the interaction that led to the discussion’s excellent quality proved that strength does not lie in numbers (apologies to Rodgers & Hammerstein).
I am still overwhelmed at the participants’ responses. For one, I feel so affirmed to know that the fruits of my years of research have found a practical application and that it somehow rationalises many things about Filipino cuisine.
I intend to write a recap or several short summary posts but I will have to distill the takeaway lessons from the seminar first. However, Jenn of Manila Walks (sorry, not in photo) thoughtfully wrote a review and I’m touched that she said she wants to be an advocate of Filipino food.
