It’s a Filipino and Mediterranean infusion. Click for more.

On  Monday, April 30,  Chefs Him Uy de Baron of Nomama Artisanal Ramen and  Stephanie Zubiri of Atelier 317 and  catering arm Modern Epicurean Kitchen, combine their culinary skills and team up for for an intimate foodie fundraiser. Infusing Filipino and Mediterranean flavours, the"glorified cusinera" as Zubiri likes to call herself, joins forces with Chef Him for a unique menu that’s "served family style amongst friends and strangers", featuring  their global spin on comfort food favourites like sinigang, adobo and fried chicken.


Further dessert collaborations with Chef Buddy Trinidad of Park Avenue Desserts and Xandra Rocha of Pinkerton Ice Cream promise to satisfy everyone's sweet tooth. Also accompanying the specially created  multi-course meal will  be  a selection of craft beers sponsored by Global Beer Exchange.

The evening's beneficiary  is near and dear to Zubiri's heart.  Together with Habitat for Humanity  and with the help of the International Institution for Rural Reconstruction, Zubiri  hopes to introduce accessible nutrition to Habitat for Humanity communities  through bio-intensive gardening of nutritious crops. The "big idea"  is  to  teach these communities how to  uplift their level of nutrition and lessen household expenses by teaching them to grow hardy and healthy crops and cook them creatively, but still on the cheap.
