"You cannot be a Filipino unless you become Pampanga first."

February 18, 2009

"You cannot be a Filipino unless you become Pampanga first."




Ultimate Pampanga Christmas Tour-17

Congratulations to Augusto Elefanio, Claude Tayag, Ivan Man Dy and Market Manila for showcasing the Filipino cuisine to the World in No Reservations Philippines. Anthony Bourdain credited the slow-roasted lechon in Cebu as "The Best Pig Ever" (kudos to MarketManila!). This puts the Philippines' pork dish in the #1 slot in Bourdain's Hierarchy of Pork



One of my favorite quotes in the show was "You cannot be a Filipino unless you become Pampanga (your roots) first." by Claude Tayag. In the same way, Anthony Bourdain regards himself as a New Yorker first and then an American. I believe that we really need to be proud of our roots (whether you are a Kapampangan, Bicolano, etc.) to appreciate our Filipino Heritage.
