“Revisiting Pinoy Classics” by Chef Tatung

Chef Tatung at The Maya Kitchen

Chef Tatung brings us back to the kitchen of old with his own signature twist on well-loved Filipino dishes on June 25, Saturday, 10am-2pm at The Maya Kitchen Culinary Elite Series.

Chef Tatung will demonstrate Ukoy, a Malabon favorite of shredded vegetables and shrimp coated in light annatto infused batter, deep fried to a golden crisp fritter; Pancit Pusit, also known as Pansit Choco En Su Tinta, is a classic Caviteño dish of rice noodles bathed in rich squid ink sauce topped with vegetables, crushed chicharon, squid rings, and slices of kamias; Classic Molo Soup, meat dumplings wrapped in thin wanton wrappers, swimming in a rich chicken broth with shredded chicken and shrimp garnished with fried garlic and scallions; Lechon Belly, Rolled Pork Belly Lechon stuffed with the flavors of Cebu; and Special Cassava Bibingka made more special with the addition of nata de coco, kaong, and shredded young coconut into the cassava mixture and topped with a sweet yema-like glaze.

A lunch buffet featuring Chef Tatung’s dishes follows the demonstration.
