Part of Thursday Nights at the Asian Art Museum
This Tasting Menu offers a forum for discussing contemporary Philippine cuisine, seeking to understand “Where do you draw the line between tradition and innovation?"
We invite four chefs, including Francis Ang of Pinoy Heritage, Eric Pascual from EatsbyE, Richgail Enriquez of Astig Vegan and Janice Lazaga of the recently closed pop-up Elena Una, to trace Philippine culinary heritage in the Bay Area and explore how they maintain Philippine tradition while appealing to a larger audience who are unfamiliar with the traditional cuisine. PJ Quesada of Filipino Food Movement will moderate the discussion.
Afterwards, visitors will have the opportunity to taste each chef’s take on contemporary Philippine food.
