Philippine Cuisine in English
Mediterranean Flair in Asia
with Kay Alave

When we hear fusion cuisine, we think of a special type of restaurant, but actually nothing describes the Philippine cuisine better than the term ‘fusion’. The archipel with 7.100 islands was the used a trading post by Malaysian, Arabic and Chinese traders befor the Europeans arrived in the 16th century. First the Spanish came and stayed for over 400 years. The Americans were next and therefore the colonial influences and the influences of the neighbouring countries is very strong, even today. You’ll find Spanish ingredients, which are prepared with European or Mexican techniques. Often mixed with Asian ingredients like coconut milk, ginger or noodles. This unique combination makes the Philippine cuisine special amongst it’s Southasian neighbours: it’s unconventional, bold and exciting! This class is an introduction to the basic flavours, ingredients and techniques used in the Philippine cuisine.

Kay Alave

Kay fing bereits mit sechs Jahren mit dem Kochen an als ihre Mutter ihr erklärte, wie man Fisch säubert und ausnimmt. Das war für ihre Mutter eine wichtige Lebenskompetenz, wichtiger als Fahrradfahren, dass Kay bis heute noch nicht erlernt hat. Sie wuchs in Manila auf und arbeitete zehn Jahre als Journalistin. 2012 zog sie nach Berlin um an der Hochschule für nachhaltige Entwicklung in Eberswalde ihren Master zu machen.

Wenn sie nicht in der Küche steht findet man Kay meist in der Bibliothek, wo sie an ihrer lange herausgeschobenen Masterarbeit schreibt. Diese dreht sich natürlich ums Essen, genauer gesagt um die politische Ökologie von Nahrungsmitteln.
