At the start of the year, my friend Pia and I created PinoyFoodista.com. We envision it to become the biggest online aggregation of Pinoy Foodistas from all parts of the world. At the current state of things in Manila, we only have something like permutations of an online forum where people throw questions like “where can I find the best goto in Manila?” or “where can I find fresh arugula in Manila?” What we would like to ultimately achieve is to create the biggest online community of foodies where we get to exchange recipes, food discoveries, restaurant reviews, and everything related to food. Like all things food in one place.
PinoyFoodistas, wherever you are, come join us!
We also like to invite non-Filipino readers and bloggers to join us and discover that Filipino dishes are more than just a classic Chicken Adobo. Pia and I are working double-time to add more features and functionalities to the website. Soon, you will find it to be the biggest repository of Filipino recipes!
It’s a work-in-progress and we’re still bringing all content together. But we’re already inviting everyone to come and join us!
Our very first activity is called PinoyFoodista Cooking Challenge. I’m pretty sure most of you know the drill. It’s like an online cooking bootcamp where we create a dish following a specific theme or using a particular ingredient.
Our first cooking challenge is called SUMPTUOUS SALADS and since the challenge is basically free-flowing, it’s all up to you on how you want to interpret it. Go all out or keep it simple, it’s all up to you!
So what are you waiting for? Go ahead, make your own sumptuous salad and don’t forget to submit at least two (2) photos to firstname.lastname@example.org not later than January 25, 2011.
Happy cooking! 😀
