And, yes, that's how I welcomed the 113th Philippines Independence Day!
Present at The Meranti at Two Serendra, Alveo Land's latest innovative community at the very heart of Bonifacio Global City (BGC), were Chef Jackie Laudico of Bistro Filipino and Chef Sau del Rosario of Le Bistro Vert for the Flavors of the Filipino Passion.
Chef Jackie took the center-stage first, sharing her ideas and thoughts on Independence Day and Filipino Cuisine. A proud Ilongga, Chef Jackie talked about how diverse the Filipino culture is and how it affects even the food that we eat and how we call it.
One example that she said was how we Tagalogs call a food "biko", while them Ilonggos call it "bibingka".
