The Filipino Food Blogging Event

Newsbreak: A Taste of Culinary Identity

By Lasang Pinoy On Thursday, September 15, 2005 At 4:44 PM

What does Lasang Pinoy have in common with what make it to the Lifestyle section of a weekly Manila news publication? Well, even with the Ninoy Aquino Day edition, we never really thought about it but when reporter Charlene Dy e-mailed Karen for an interview for what she thought was "a great platform for Filipino bloggers as well as an interesting intersection of food, technology and political culture" - we realised that yes it was!

Charlene's Newsbreak article A Taste of Culinary Identity is also online. Find it in between Bird Flu and the Kamikaze Memorial. Now doesn't that make this project relevant?!

    Lasang Pinoy, which could mean ‘tastes of something Filipino’ or short for ‘the Filipino taste’ is a monthly food blogging event to promote Filipino food. It is a product of email brainstorming sessions of several Filipino food bloggers who thought it was time for a Filipino event in the tradition of Is My Blog Burning. The blogger organisers of Lasang Pinoy and participants strive to make the events reflective of Filipino culture.
