Cooking Traditional Filipino Dishes

Food is one of the most common ways in which we can connect with each other as humans. For many of people, their fondest memories often involve food. We can spend quality time with loved ones over a delicious meal or show our appreciation for someone by cooking a meal for them. Food is also a powerful method of preserving and sharing one’s culture, a task that can be particularly difficult for those that come from immigrant families. This website is designed to share traditional Filipino dishes with visitors through easy-to-follow instructions, and perhaps even increase overall awareness of Filipino food. The intended audience is anyone who has an interest in cooking, particularly trying to prepare Filipino dishes.
