An Ethnic Aisle Event - Will There Be Halo Halo?

Join us to explore Filipino food and culture in Toronto, and discuss what happens when a so-called ethnic food goes mainstream. Journalist Jef Catapang will lead a panel discussion featuring:

- Nicole Cajucom, executive director, Kapisanan Centre

- Daniel Cancino, head chef, Lamesa

- Ethel Tungohan, co-editor, Filipinos in Canada: Disturbing Invisibility

We will also be sampling Filipino food.
