Savor Filipino, Saturday - August 30, 2014, 10:00 a.m.- 6:00 p.m. - celebrates 50-years of Filipino cuisine in the United States. The idea is to taste, cook, learn, sip, and enjoy the Filipino foodie experience. Watch chefs demonstrate classic dishes and traditional recipes with modern flair. Culinary experts: authors, professors, confectioners, sustainable growers, and more will discuss the evolution of Asian food popularity in the United States. Savor Filipino is founded by the Filipino Food Movement and sponsored by Ramar Foods.

Savor Filipino is the first event designed to specifically introduce Filipino food to the a more mainstream consumer. While other Asian cuisines, such as Sushi, Chinese, and Thai are well understood, Filipino food is on the brink of pushing through to a broad audience, and Savor Filipino sees itself as a catalyst for that push.
