ITALY – Filipinos and foreign nationals had a gastronomical experience in an event that highlighted Pinoy food favorites in Rome.

Chef and Cibo owner Margarita Gaita Fores demonstrated to the audience how easy it is to prepare and cook food that will be a hit with Pinoys.

“Sana mabigyan natin ng opportunity na maipakita sa mga Italyano at sa madla na napakaganda ng kultura natin. Nakakataba ng puso ang oportunidad na ito na magawa itong trabaho dito,” Fores said.

Among the dishes that Fores prepared were sisig and kilawin.

The demonstration was part of the week-long Filipino Food Promotion under the Italy-Philippines Gastronomical Partnership. Diego Evangelista, ABS-CBN Europe News Bureau
