As is with most countries that have a long history of multicultural influences, the Philippines too has her cuisine coalesce from a mixture of Spanish, Indian, Chinese and most recently from American food culture into the indigenous cuisine. While the Filipinos love their fast food joints, anything ranging from the Mcdonalds to the homegrown Jollibee, you will find an equal number of carinderia run by locals that serve up delicious home cooked local cuisine. And it's in these carinderia that you will find the most authentic local dishes: these are eateries run by families and you can get a hearty meal for super cheap. If there's anything that beats the Filipino love for burgers and fast foods, it's a well cooked Adbobo from one of the carinderia's!
For this cooking class, we'll take you deep into an urban neighborhood in Cebu City. There is a mom who spent most of her life cooking for her kids and took a passion for it that she made cooking her side business.
