On Monday 17th June 2019, The Filipino Food Movement Australia will be presenting their second bespoke pop up dinner presenting Filipino Food to Sydney called “Mabuhay Nights”.
The Term Mabuhay is significant because to Filipinos it’s a greeting that means “Welcome!”, “To Life!”, or even just simply, a heartfelt “hello”.
In honour of Philippine Independance day (12 June), join The Filipino Food Movement alongside Guest Head Chef Nina Cruz from Sizzling Fillo and Guest Head Chef Pierre Marie Lucente from Chicago Jones for a special dinner tasting your way through six exquisite dishes celebrating Filipino flavours using seasonal, local Australian produce alongside much-loved Filipino elements.
Filipino cuisine is, in the first instance, derived from over 10 distinct ethno-linguistic groups throughout the country, and like many nations all over the world, The Philippines’ culinary history is incredibly diverse, informed by centuries of colonisation and trade. The Philippines has therefore been the recipient of cross-cultural influence from countries like Malaysia and China, and, as is so prominent in Filipino history books, Spain.
From these influences, whether organically or by the country’s colonial past, the Philippines’ cuisine adapted and changed. What may have started as unique cuisines / dishes from faraway Spain has been adapted by Filipinos to better reflect their culture.
