LA Times Food Fair to highlight Pinoy cuisine
Bida ang Pinoy! International food scene will once again get acquainted with Filipino food, with the upcoming food fair organized by the LA Times.
Los Angeles Times will be launching a 31-day food fair stationed at various locations throughout LA which will include Filipino cuisine as one of its highlights.
The culinary fair which aims to celebrate the city’s “dynamic and influential food scene” will be featuring international chefs, food tastings, panel discussions, pop-up dinners, cooking classes, and more.
Fil-Am chef Alvin Cailan, known for the popular Eggslut, Unit 120 and Amboy, will be one of the chefs who will spearhead the event.
“We’ve got to represent Filipino food and our culture and the bounty of the Philippines here,” Cailan told Asian Journal in an interview. “It’s our time.”
He also encouraged all Fil-Ams, to come out and take part in the festival to witness how Filipino cuisine is reaching greater heights.
“My biggest campaign for the ‘I Love Filipino Food’ movement is to get the community involved,” he said. “We have all the talent in the world, we have the best chefs in the city. Now we just ask our brothers and sisters, our kababayan, to show support for what we do. The price point is not a factor because there will be street food, not just fancier dinners”, he added.
