The cultural influences in Filipino cooking range from China to India to Spain and America, all via trade, colonization, immigration, and adaptation. Filipino food has changed dramatically throughout history, starting with indigenous ingredients and absorbing and adapting techniques along the way. Join Jay Guerrero in this class where you’ll explore some of the Tsinoy dishes that have emerged from the oldest Chinese influences. On the menu: pancit molo (shrimp and pork dumplings poached in rich chicken broth); lumpia hubad (“naked” fresh vegetable roll with sweet garlic soy sauce); kiampong (sweet and savory sticky rice with Chinese sausage, mustard greens, and adobo peanuts); hopia ube (flaky pastry filled with sweet ube paste).
