chef yana gilbuena: Salo project, the world
Chef Yana Gilbuena is the mastermind behind SALO, a traveling dinner project that serves kamayan style feasts (traditional Filipino method of eating with one’s hands). She’s completed a 50state tour of the US and recently, of Canada, and has her sights set on Central and South America next year.
"I'm excited for the Kultura festival to share with the Chicago community the depth of filipino food and culture," said Chef Yana.
"The food and the people make me passionate about Filipino food. food is a great way to engage people already, but with Filipino food, it's unchartered territory. There's a lot of room to grow and explore and I want to share my explorations with people."
