Kultura Festival is the Midwest’s premier Filipino American food and arts event. Carefully curated to appeal to those who personally identify with Filipino culture and the merely curious or uninitiated, Kultura Festival is proud to be a part of the inaugural Chicago Tribune Food Bowl, a three-week long celebration of “chefs, restaurateurs, mixologists, innovators, entrepreneurs, critics, and connoisseurs who put Chicago at the forefront of the nation's food and drink scene.”

Explore wellness with filipino cuisine this year!

In partnership with Alliance of Filipinos for Immigrant Rights & Empowerment (AFIRE), Usapang Pagkain explores how Filipino food can best serve our community through free, monthly events. The event series resists the notion of Filipino food as incompatible with healthy living. It is a response to the dearth of culturally-relevant health education and the epidemic of cardiovascular disease and diabetes in our community. Usapang Pagkain will bring generations of Chicagoland Filipinos together to share our stories with one another and collectively learn practices that center our health, community, and food. Each event will highlight a Filipino dish or dishes, including recipes. Specifically organized to provide a much-needed community space for dialogue on health and wellness, Usapang Pagkain will examine the importance and potential of Filipino food in nourishing our body and soul.

you're invited to "adapting filipino classics" on wednesday, may 23 from 6 to 8 pm.

  • Samples of the featured recipes will be served.

  • All are welcome and the event is free.

  • AFIRE and our Usapang Pagkain event series is housed at the HANA Center at 4300 N. California Ave. in Chicago.

  • RSVP online.

 

Thank you, agyamanakapo, to all who participated in “Bahay kubo,” featuring recipes using vegetables -- all vegetarian!: kare kare, kulawo (burnt coconut cream).

The last 2018 Usapang Pagkain event's schedule and theme is:

 

Location: Hana Center

Unless noted, all events are free to the public and will take place at the HANA Center (4300 N. California Ave. in Chicago). Schedule and venues are subject to change. Please check afirechicago.org and filipino.kitchen for the most up-to-date information.
