THE FEAST CLUB

—  welcome to the feast club!  —

"There are two kinds of taste,
the taste for emotions of surprise
and the taste for emotions of recognition." 
 -Henry James

 

The Feast Club is a dinner series that encompass prominent influences in Filipino cuisine with a modern interpretation using locally sourced ingredients. Each theme delves into the tradition and cultural identity of our food and country. The Philippines has had a history of colonization and occupation from Spain, Japan and the United States of America that significantly shaped our eating habits. The country, being an archipelago, is a cultural crossroad in Southeast Asia that has forged a unique cultural and racial blend. This diversity has evolved food traditions that are celebrated all over the country and continuously over generations. Filipinos are renowned for their hospitality and love for food, we always find a reason to celebrate any occasion.
