This holiday season, join MOFAD and The Greene Space for a celebration of Filipinx food and traditions. Learn how to make two kinds of pancit, a popular noodle dish that is highly flexible and traditionally eaten during celebratory events such as Noche Buena, the Filipino Christmas Eve feast.
During a cooking demo, chef Jenn de la Vega will share her mother’s family recipe for a pancit with seafood and meat, and chef Woldy Reyes will teach his more contemporary vegan adobo pancit.
After we’ve cooked and had something to eat, the chefs will be joined by VICE staff writer Bettina Makalintal and Ria Dolly Barbosa, chef of Petite Peso in Los Angeles, for a conversation about Filipinx holiday food traditions, memories, and identity.
To keep the mood celebratory, we’ll close out the evening with a little music in the spirit of the Filipino holiday tradition of Karaoke.
We’ve partnered with Filipino Online Grocery, Tindahan Ni Luz to create a box of shelf-stable pantry ingredients so you can cook along with Jenn and Woldy at home. Order your tickets before December 9th to add-on this ingredient box and get it shipped directly to your door (US residents only).Buy tickets/get more info now
