A Dégustation at Café Ysabel

27 January and 1 February 2012
6:30pm - 9:30pm
(These are two alternative dates. Please choose which date is more  
convenient for you.)

To understand the originality of a cultural artifact, cross-cultural  
comparisons are useful. To the frequent question: What makes Filipino  
cuisine unique and original?, a good answer would be to compare  
particular dishes with their foreign counterparts. This annual dinner  
was conceived and actualized by Dr. Fernando N. Zialcita, an  
anthropologist, and Mr. Gene Gonzalez, a chef and culinary writer,  
over the course of nine years in order to help Ateneo students  
appreciate experientially the specificity of the Filipino cooking  
style.  This dinner forms part of the syllabus of a course called  
Culture and the Senses, and is one of the activities in the Social  
Sciences Week. It is open to the public. Indeed various experts in  
Philippine cuisine and culture have tasted this dinner and have  
enjoyed it. They have even written about it in the national dailies.
