Sydney, 29 August 2018 – Shangri-La Hotel, Sydney celebrates the vibrant flavours of Filipino cuisine at the Philippine Food Festival, returning for its sixth year at Café Mix from 20 to 30 September 2018.
Flown in especially for the occasion, guest chefs from Makati Shangri-La Hotel, Manila will showcase a diverse array of Filipino dishes for guests and food enthusiasts alike to savour.
Sydney-siders will feast their senses on an authentic selection of dishes, such as Sisig, Lechon (Pork Belly), Chicken Inasal and Adobong, to name but a few on the curated Filipino menu.
Delivering the sweetest of finales, the dessert station will feature traditional Filipino treats, as well as a live Halo-Halo station and a colourful display of Executive Pastry Chef Anna Polyviou’s desserts.
Filipino food is an intricate pattern of Spanish, Western, Chinese, Japanese and Pacific Islander flavours that serve as living proof of the country’s rich cultural history. Consisting of 7,000 islands, the Philippines has a tropical and humid climate, resulting in a rich and fertile soil that cultivates an abundance of fresh produce and herbs.
Shangri-La Hotel, Sydney’s Executive Chef Hemant Dadlani is excited to celebrate the hotel’s sixth Philippine Food Festival at Café Mix.
“Continuously attracting the interest of the Filipino community and food aficionados, our guest chefs from Makati Shangri-La Hotel, Manila will deliver tantalising dishes that capture the uniqueness of Filipino culture,” Chef Dadlani said.
The Philippine Food Festival is presented in partnership with Philippine Airlines and the Philippine Department of Tourism.
