Cooking class in English
Philippine Cuisine in English
Mediterranean Flair in Asia
with Minette De Asis & John Tubles

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 flabours, ingredients and techniques used in the Philippine cuisine.
