April is officially declared as “Filipino Food Month”!

What do we Filipinos take pride in other than our beautiful natural resources and our hospitable traits?

Our delicacies, of course! With our cuisine greatly influenced by the Western colonizers with our own Asian touch, many tourists and international food content creators acknowledge our food as unique and diverse.

It was reported by ABS-CBN News that President Rodrigo Duterte “signed Proclamation No. 469 last April 13”.  It basically states that it declares April as Filipino Food Month.

The same website also stated that the Department of Agriculture and the National Commission for Culture and Arts were “tasked to lead the Filipino Food Month”.

If the hot and lazy weather doesn’t give you more reason to divulge in our cuisine, perhaps the recent proclamation would!
