Description: The sixth event in the Pamanang Pinoy series, we invited community members to celebrate Filipino heritage through a presentation exploring the cultural significance of rice in the Philippines. Guests were invited to an interactive presentation hosted by Filipino Kitchen, featuring a tasting menu of three different varieties of prepared rice dishes. All three courses were prepared on site and distributed to guests in the Marae Gallery. We also shared with guests artifacts from the Philippine Heritage Collection that relate to the harvest, consumption, and cultural uses of rice. Guests were also encouraged to share recipes using rice with us to be compiled for a type of community cookbook.
