Filipino Flavors: Tradition & Innovation

The Asian Culinary Forum, Art Institute of California, and the Asia Society invite anyone interested in learning more about Filipino flavors to join us for an exciting, weekend-long celebration of the foods of the Philippines. With a lineup of special panel discussions with scholars and chefs, food tastings, wine pairings, cook-offs, hands-on classes, and plenty of delicious food and beautiful music, the symposium has something for everyone. Come learn, share, eat, and enjoy the many wonderful contributions of this food-loving community.

* a unique master cooking class
* a revelatory food & wine pairing
* provocative chefs' and scholars' panels
* a literary reading of poetry and prose
* live music
* and, yes, a decisive adobo throw-down!
