Dishes from the Philippines with Mestiza Filipina - FUNDRAISER
At Brighton and Hove Community Kitchen
Tuesday, 12th February 2019
18:00 - 21:00

Louise, who grew up with the tastes of the Philippines and founded Brighton’s Mestiza Filipina, and Sam, former head chef at 64 Degrees, are the super-enthusiastic teachers behind this workshop. Let them introduce you to the spicy, sweet, salty and sour flavours of Filipino cuisine!

Starting off with a whole chicken you will be talked through the leave-no-waste techniques that will see you producing five Filipino family favourites from the one carcass: Adobo (made with sugar cane vinegar, garlic, bay and soy); Adobo sa gata (with coconut milk); two fabulous broths – Sinigang and Tinola; and Chicken Inasal, using a spicy citrus marinade.

You will learn how to make the best rice and end the class with an amazing feast – and still have some to take home.

Tickets for this event include:

professional cookery tuition
all ingredients and equipment
hot drinks throughout the session and a welcome glass of fizz
a full meal at our sociable dining table (you are welcome to bring your own drinks to enjoy with the meal)
all recipes from the class.
Thanks to Louise & Sam for generously donating their time for this event. All profits raised from this class support our community cookery activities – where everyone can experience the benefits of cooking and eating together, regardless of finance, confidence or ability.
