The Splendid Table Focuses on Filipino Food

This weekend, Francis Lam devotes the entire the hour to the food of the Philippines. He visits the home of chef King Phojanakong and his mother Emma, for a lesson in the delicious Filipino stew – Salmon Sinigang. Share their video with your audiences.

Listeners will also hear about the the unique influences on Filipino food from Amy Besa, author of the award-winning Memories of Philippine Kitchens, Filipino pantry staples from chef Chad Valencia of L.A.s’ Lasa, and a short list of where to eat great Filipino food across the U.S.

This weekend’s show is all about Mexican food in America, from tortillas to chilaquiles.

Francis Lam tastes and talks tortillas with  Jorge Gavira of Masienda. Jorge offers the last word on what makes great tortillas and shares the ultimate insider tip on how to correctly heat them.

Listeners will also visit The Mitla Café, a Cal –Mex landmark that is a pillar of the San Bernadino Chicano community –  and the inadvertent model for uber chain Taco Bell; get a flan-making lesson from Fany Gerson, chef-owner of La Newyorkina and author of Mexican Ice Cream; Tucker Shaw from Cook’s Country explains chilaquiles, the irresistible chile/chip dish, and chef Wesley Avila of  L.A.’ Guerilla Taco truck shares his distinctive thinking around the humble taco – think curried cauliflower tacos with dates…

Like the recent exploration of Filipino food and culture, The Splendid Table will devote this week’s show to a celebration of what has become an integral part of American food culture.
