SEA Food Crawl: The Filipino Boodle with Chef Kenneth Cacho
In the second episode of Southeast Asian Food Crawl, Asia Society Philippines is joined by Chef Ken Cacho, who will be discussing the Filipino Boodle Fight.
Whether you know it as boodle feasts or boodle fights, its essence remains the same – a communal feast where food is laid out on banana leaves and enjoyed together through kamayan (eating without utensils; only with bare hands).
The Filipino Boodle isn’t just food served on a dish, it’s a culinary experience meant to be enjoyed together with close friends and family all in one biiig plate!
Join us on November 19, at 6PM as Chef Ken tells us more about the Filipino Boodle, the story behind it, what you can include in your boodle, and ways you can serve it to friends and family.
