Hawaii meets Philippines in Fruit Gastronomy Event!
Is fruit infusion craze on local food coming to the Philippines? Famous Hawaiian fruit Guru and Chef, Ken Love, will conduct a six-hour agriculinary event and sit-down dinner for the public from 9 AM to 3 PM on Monday, October 28 at MoCa Farm just outside of Padre Garcia, Batangas. The event features Filipino fruit dishes created from recipes of Ken Love and many well-respected, local Chefs. All of the food used for the event is fresh and locally grown. Farmers will be present to discuss how high-quality fruit is grown, why it’s healthier and tastes better. Mr. Love will also have a presentation on topics of Farmers & Chefs relationship and the creation of Agri-culinary tourism.
Ken Love has been passionate about local fruits and vegetables since the 1980s when he saw exotic mangoes, avocados and papayas rotting on the roadsides of Hawai’i Island. Since that time he has championed the replacement of imported fruits and vegetables with high-quality locally grown foods in restaurants, by grocers and supplied by wholesalers. Mr. Love shares his enthusiasm throughout Hawai’i and across the Pacific Ocean and now for the first time in the Philippines.
The event is sponsored by the Rare Fruit Society of the Philippines and features many well-respected chefs and farmers from across Luzon. According to one of the organizer of the event, Gigi Morris of MoCa Farm, “This unique event will give local chefs and local farmers and producers the chance to introduce to consumers high-quality, local fruit and how to prepare it.”
The event showcases dishes by Chef Ken and other highly respected Filipino Chefs using local, in-season fruits as the main ingredients. The event features an early sit-down dinner with recipes created for the event by participating Chefs.
