Learn how to cook Filipino cuisine with this private class package. This package is perfect for those who want to grasp a basic knowledge of what Filipino cuisine is and how to prepare some of its dishes, as it comes with 4 60-minute sessions. You’ll learn about Kapampangan cuisine, Ilonggo cuisine, Mindanao cuisine, and food preservation the Filipino way.

The schedule of the classes is flexible, so you can book them 4 days in a row, every other day, or even one class a week. Once the schedule is finalized, a Zoom meeting link will be sent to you. 

Lately, Filipino food has become popular all over the world, and this package will allow you to familiarize yourself with some of its famous dishes. Since Filipino food is closely tied to Filipino culture, you’ll also learn about the country’s heritage. All classes are taught by experienced chefs, ensuring that you will be in good hands.

The first session on this package is the Kapampangan cuisine class. Kapampangan dishes come from Pampanga, which is known as the Culinary Capital of the Philippines, thanks to its delicious dishes like sisig, which is made from chopped pig’s face. You’ll discover the origins and history of some of these iconic dishes, which further proves the ingenuity of the Kapampangans, as well as how the cuisine has influenced the local culture.

Your next class is on Ilonggo cuisine. These dishes come from Iloilo, home to Spanish colonial architecture, colorful festivals, and beautiful heritage sites. In this class, you’ll learn about the refreshing Ilonggo dishes, their history, and how they put Iloilo on the culinary map of the country.

Next, you’ll learn about the food of an entire region, Mindanao. Thanks to its location near neighboring countries like Malaysia, Indonesia, and Brunei, the food in Mindanao is a fusion of culinary influences. Mindanao is also abundant in exotic spices and fruits, making the dishes here even more unique and interesting. 

Your last class is about food preservation. Filipinos have their own way of preserving food, and in this class, you will learn how to make atchara or pickled vegetables the way locals do. You’ll also learn to make one of the most famous Filpino dishes, adobo. Adobo is basically a Filipino confit that uses vinegar and soy sauce instead of wine. This way of preparing and cooking helps the ingredients last longer.

Cook dishes from Pampanga, Iloilo, and Mindanao after you learn how to make them yourself with the help of this private class package. Check the availability by choosing a date.
