04 June 2019 – (Left photo) Consul Arlene T. Magno welcomes the guests to the inaugural cultural event Long Table Series featuring the Philippines, which was held at the Chinatown House on 30 May 2019. The objective of the Long Table series is to create cultural exchange and foster understanding through the senses of taste, sound and sight. Consul Magno highlighted the timeliness of the event as it closed the May 2019 celebrations of Asian Heritage Month in Vancouver and coincided with the maiden year celebration of June as Filipino Heritage Month all over Canada. Around 40 guests from the Canadian media, business community and British Columbia Consular Corps attended the event.
The culinary feast was prepared by Maj Yee of Goldilocks in boodle fight set-up, a distinct Filipino culinary tradition that originated from the Philippine military, and comprised of garlic rice, lechon kawali, pork sisig, fried fish, and longganisa, as well as grilled eggplants, vegetable spring rolls, and ensaladang mangga, served atop banana leaves and eaten with bare hands, while halo-halo, turon and empanaditas completed the Filipino gastronomic experience.
