Introducing Tagay-Tagay pop-up dinner as a way to promote Filipino food in Australia

Previous posts

The Filipino Food Movement Australia Inc. (FFMAI) is presenting the Tagay-Tagay dining series on Friday, 14 October 2022, at the Pamana Filipino Restaurant in Chatswood, NSW. 

Tagay!” (Cheers) 

Often, you will hear people shouting tagay in the Philippines during a fiesta, celebration, or special occasion as they pour out a glass or two and toast it. Part of Filipino culture, the tradition of tagayan (circle of drinking peers) today is something that shows camaraderie and friendship among friends who are having a good time. 

In the tagay spirit, this pop-up dinner will feature Filipino wine and tapas paired with handpicked Australian wines to showcase the distinctness of Filipino food. The first event in this pop-up series is led by Siegfrid Gueco Bacani, owner of 7000 Islands Wine Co

During this unique, interactive experience, attendees will learn about a beautiful Australian wine selection that perfectly complements Filipino cuisine. During the evening, Bacani will serve as host and discuss the wines explicitly selected for the occasion, explaining the thought process behind each pairing.
