With a population of over 99 million people stemming from 120 different ethnic groups, the Philippines is made up of 7,500 islands with a colourful history. With an abundance of cultural influences, this archipelago has formed a rich culinary identity.
Blessed with an abundance of seafood, tropical fruits and a distinct use of naturally sour and salty flavours, Filipino food is a subtle mix of its Asian neighbours as well as featuring influences from its early Spanish colonisation.
The 10th Flavours of the Philippines Food Festival is a joint project of the Philippine Department of Tourism in Australia and New Zealand and The Grace Hotel.
The Festival is also a calendar event celebrating 70 years of Australia-Philippines diplomatic relations.
The chefs are being flown in to Sydney courtesy of sponsor Philippine Airlines.
Hurry on to the Grace Hotel Sydney to enjoy the sumptuous Flavours of the Philippines running from 28th July – 13th August 2016.
