At this live post-show Q+A, each of these inspiring Filipino food champions from near and far will share their personal culinary journeys, comment on the recent rise of our cuisine, and discuss why it deserves pride of place on the global table.
Ultimately, Ulam: Main Dish is a cultural call-to-action for Filipino food lovers and creators the world over. It confirms what The Entree.Pinays have made their mission: to demonstrate how our complex, colourful cuisine contributes to Melbourne’s reputation as a world-class gastronomic destination.
We are honoured to bring Fil-Am cuisine queens Allie and Yana to Australia, welcome them into our sisterhood and share their talent with the local Filipino community.
We hope to see you there!
This event is made possible by our Major Event Sponsors, Philippine Airlines, and our incredible community of supporters, Luisa Brimble and the Sari Sari Sisterhood.
