The search for regional food stories on eating, cooking, and dining

 

Inspired by Teresita “Mama Sita” Reyes’ own passion of writing her culinary adventures and experiences, “Mga Kuwentong Pagkain (MKP)” was launched as a nationwide contest aimed to encourage everyone to share authentic, one-of-a-kind and little known stories on Philippine cuisine and cooking. 

In Iloilo, an old woman makes candies the shape of elegant swans from green papaya rind. In Misamis Occidental, carefully selected cassava is made into a flat snack the size of a plate. 

MKP is ongoing and open to all who want to share their memorable encounters with Philippine food, cooking and dining. The underlying objective of the contest is to gather as many stories as possible to make a valuable and detailed compilation of Philippine food, especially since so many Philippine food preparation stories and recipes are being forgotten.
