We have less than two weeks left in June to celebrate Filipino Heritage Month. As Manitoba sets to start Phase 3 of re-opening the Manitoba ecomony and increasing group gathering limits, we still have time to come together as a community to celebrate our culture, heritage and cuisine.
Earlier this month, I was invited to be part of CTV Morning Live broadcast where several groups shared their scaled back plans to celebrate Filipino Heritage Month. This included Chef Allan Pineda sharing our traditional lechon dish at Jenmuel’s Lechon Cebu & Grill in one segment. Another segment featured Richard Venzon, a local artisan and chair of the Kultivation Festival Makers Market as he’s looking to collaborate with local artists on a special Filipino Heritage Month offering.
By the time you read this article in our paper, you can tune into our Filipino Journal Facebook Live taping at Max’s Restaurant where we speak about how food is at the center of all Filipino celebrations.
If you have an upcoming celebration, event or offering dedicated to celebrating Filipino Heritage Month, we’d love to hear about it.
