Many culinary professionals and trend experts are calling out Filipino cuisine as a coming trend in authentic global flavors, and as a native of Philippines myself, I happen to agree with them. The Filipino food movement in the United States began gaining awareness in 2012 when celebrity chefs like Anthony Bourdain and Andrew Zimmern began broadcasting about delicious Filipino food flavors. Then in 2015, the international culinary summit “Madrid Fusion” selected Manila for the location of its 2015 event, to be the location for the 2015 event, and Alain Ducasse launched his first Alain Ducasse Institute out outside of France at Enderun Colleges in Taguig City, the famed chef’s regional hub in Asia.
