Virtual Field Trip:

Objective: To learn about new foods and cultures. Understand what differences there are amongst other people in this world.

What we're gonna be doing:

  • This is for everyone that loves food and/or history whether you can cook or not!

Most people think that Filipino Food is all this fatty unhealthy exotic Asian Food. This experience is going to change your mind.

I'll give you tips on where to get the ingredients needed and the replacement ingredients depending on where you are.

I will teach you how to cook a Filipino dish (Randomly selected or you can request what you like and we'll see what we can do.)

WHAT ARE WE COOKING?

Please pick one of the following and inform me so I can send you the list of ingredients after booking :

  • Lumpia (Filipino spring rolls or vegetable rolls)
  • Kare-Kare (vegetables and meat in peanut sauce)
  • Sisig (meat and tofu)
  • Sinigang (Filipino sour soup)
  • Adobo (meat)
  • Pancit (Filipino noodles)
  • Dessert(we can make Filipino Halo-halo or shaved ice, flan, or others)
  • Fish (we have a lot of easy to cook fish dish)
  • DO YOU WANNA LEARN HOW TO COOK RICE WITHOUT RICE COOKER? I CAN TEACH YOU!

If you are not that comfortable in the Kitchen or cooking is not for you, it's totally fine since watching me cook is okay while we talk about the history and background of the dish we are making.


Imagine eating something you made after learning how the dish was born into this world.
