As part of this year's much anticipated 9th annual Kultura Filipino Arts Festival is this fantastic food fest called ‘Get Nostalgic’ featuring two of Toronto's most celebrated chefs: Chef Rudy Boquila (Lamesa Filipino Kitchen) and Chef Basilio Pesce (Porzia). It will feature innovative menus (via stations) with childhood and family nostalgia-inspired dishes, an open bar, art created by Kapisanan's flagship arts mentorship and cultural immersion programs AND live music (featuring 1960s Filipino pop music classics) . All proceeds benefit Kapisanan Filipino Centre for Arts & Culture's (where my sis Caroline is Executive Director) youth arts programs. This event will be held at the beautiful Twist Gallery on Thursday, August 7th at 6pm. Great food, great cause and a fun party. I cannot wait! Get tickets and info about this and all the Kultura 2014 events at kultura.ca before it sells out! You don't want to miss this, Toronto.
A little secret about Chef Rudy's menu for this event (and those with familiarity with Filipino food) there will be SQUID INK PALABOK. I cannot wait!
note: kultura.ca mobile site will be available by this weekend!
