Adoboloko x Filipino Kitchen presents "Atang" An Ilocano Food Offering
Long before the West arrived in the islands now known as the Philippines and ruled with the cross and the sword, indigenous spiritual traditions made up the basis for our worldview. Filipinos continue to practice these traditions even within the Catholic framework. Join us with visiting Chef Rob Menor of Adoboloko and Papa Urb's Grill in Stockton, California, to celebrate the culinary and mystic traditions of Ilocos, the northernmost region of the Philippines. "Atang" is the Ilocano word for a food offering to the spirit world.
Chef Rob will present a five-course menu. The meal begins with kilawin baka, a beef carpaccio cured with native citrus. Pinakbet is an Ilocano staple – a vegetable-forward dish sauteed with bagoong, the umami-packed fermented shrimp paste. The third course is pinapaitan, a goat and beef offal dish. Dinengdeng is a savory, vegetable stew. Our meal concludes with tupig, a sweet, sticky rice cooked in banana leaves.
Tickets are available now for $65 or $85 (latter includes alcohol pairing).
Returning to Chicago, Chef Rob Menor of Papa Urb’s Grill in Stockton, California, leads the Kultura Festival kitchen. Since Chef Rob participated in the 2014 Savor Filipino food festival in San Francisco and opened the second location for Papa Urb’s Grill, he has collaborated on Filipino pop-ups with chefs in California and Minnesota.
A portion of dinner will benefit Little Manila Foundation in Stockton, CA
