More About This Experience

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 to the heart of the Philippines; into a slum where most urban Filipino dwellers reside. The is a superb cook and has been at it for close to 10 years now. So not only will this experience be an insight into Filipino cuisine but you also get to witness how most Filipinos live away from swanky business centres and high rise condominiums. The Menu will include: 1. Soup: Coconut-based Vegetable Soup 2. Appetizer: Pork Lumpia (Spring rolls) 3. Main Dish: Rice and Chicken Adobo 4. Dessert: Buco Pandan (Coconut & Pandan Jello) If you aren't already aware then you should know that Filipinos LOVE to sing, evident in random Karaoke machines in the middle of a street with locals singing their hearts out all times of the day and night. And staying true to this Filipino spirit, Kuya Eddy has a Karaoke machine of his own so if you're up for it then you could brush up on your repertoire of Celine Dion and Bryan Adam songs to impress Kuya Eddy's family. :p Note: Please do not expect the conditions you would in a professional run cooking school. We've taken all measures necessary to ensure that the ingredients that will be used are 100% hygienic. If there are any specific requests or queries then do let us know beforehand.
