Bamboo Cooking Class
My Name is Lorelie. I grew up in a family that loves to cook Authentic Filipino food and so I decided to study food technology. I finish my bachelor's degree 5 years ago. I'm currently residing in Moalboal it is known for its pristine beaches, picturesque waterfalls, and its abundance of bamboo plants.
With this, I came up with the idea to share a traditional Filipino cooking class that uses bamboo as a cooking pot. I would love to share my experience with friends and foreigners, to guide them and help them to understand more about Filipino culture through great food.
Our dishes are without MSG. Guests can also request additional vegetarian dishes. The cooking class will be held in front of a beach, the guest is welcome to swim and snorkel.
What we’ll do
The activity will be held in La Concepcion Cove, an exclusive property with crystal clear water and a picturesque view of mountains. Enjoy cooking 3 Traditional Filipino dishes made of Chicken, Shrimps, and Fish, Native Filipino garden salad, Pandan steamed rice, and Local Dessert in 4 hours.
Before we start cooking, guests will have a brief introduction to Filipino cooking history. Next guests will experience how to cut their own bamboo and prepare spices and herbs for the dish. While we are waiting for the food to be cooked in charcoal, we will prepare a Filipino dessert made of local seasonal fruits.
Guest are also welcome to take a dip on the beach while waiting for the food to be cooked. When the food is cooked, the guest will enjoy tasting each dish they prepared. After the cooking class, I'll follow up with an email containing all the pictures I took, plus all the recipes so you can replicate your favorite dish back home.
