Mama Sita hosts a Visayas-themed dinner
The Mama Sita Foundation recently hosted a dinner featuring local Visayan fare for the Filipino-American chefs and media from Los Angeles at Provenciano Restaurant. The event was part of the Department of Tourism – Los Angeles’s 10-day culinary tour in the Philippines.
The culinary tour aimed to familiarize young people on the many facets of Philippine food and culture. The Mama Sita Foundation welcomed the group of wide-eyed foodies at the M Café in the Ayala Museum Complex with freshly made santol sherbet topped with Labuyo Hot Pepper Sauce.
Food Magazine’s Nana Ozaeta, and culinary authors Mickey Fenix, and Felice Prudente Sta. Maria were resource speakers during the Visayas-themed dinner.
Spotted at the two culinary affairs were Alvin Cailan, Angela Gomez, Wyatt Conlon and Kim Trac of Eggslut; Charles Raymund Olalia of Rice Bar; Johneric and Christine Concordia of The Park’s Finest; Billy Dec of Sunda; Chad Norman Valencia of Lasa; Hillary Eaton of LA Times and LA Weekly; Crystal Coser of Eater LA; Fay Castro of the Department of Tourism LA.
Mama Sita Foundation recognized the young, progressive Fil-Am chefs who, despite the cultural and industrial challenges, are making good Filipino food for the dining public and are proud of their Filipino heritage.
