Let's Eat!

"I have always believed that a true Philippine cultural value is to use food as a unifying factor — for both families and communities. “Kain na tayo” (let’s eat) is probably one of the most used phrases in our language. And the use of the phrase is not just an invitation to join in the meal, but it is a gesture that signifies that it is unthinkable to eat without sharing food. To leave anyone out of a meal is sacrilege in our culture. So food is also an intangible that makes everyone a part of the feast." -Amy Besa, Owner of Purple Yam

One of the best things I look forward to when I go home is home cooked foods. My family has some of the best Filipino cooks in the world. Good thing, they only cook for the love of family. :)
