Filipino Culture

Wednesday, 23 September, 2020 @ 01:00 PM - 02:30 PM | Cost:Free & Open to the Public

There are more than 7,100 islands in the Philippines where Catholics, Christians and Muslims live peacefully. It is the only Christian nation in Asia. It has been under the rule of Spain, Americans, and Japanese making the rich culture a fusion of what is best from those who tried to conquer. Fiestas are celebrated by Filipinos to honor the patron saints. Very commonly juxtaposed on the dinner table during these occasions are such items as a dish of pancit (Chinese), a tureen of cocido (Castilian), a stew of bacalao in oil (Basque), spaghetti with meatballs (Italian),  potato salad (American), a curry of chicken (Indian), a glass of halo-halo (Japanese), cake or pie (American), or a leche flan (Spanish). Join Florentina Laribee to learn about this beautiful culture.
