Celebrate Filipino History & Cuisine with AARP

Cocoy Ventura

AARP is proud to celebrate Filipino American history and culture at the Asian Art Museum's annual festival featuring art displays, music, dance, stories, and other performances. The theme of this year's festival, Farms to Tables: Filipino Americans Then and Now, represents the past, present, and future of Filipino Americans in California who shape the farm-labor movement and influence culinary traditions.

Attendees will meet local chefs, entrepreneurs, activists, and other artists who promote healthy community-based living through art, culture and delicious food. As part of our mission  to inspire healthy living, we will team up with Bay Area chef Cocoy Ventura during this event.

Popular Philippine food in America has skewed toward dishes that are served during fiestas and celebrations - food that is meant for special occasions. Cocoy will share every day Filipino family fare that is healthy and delicious. Come sample his celebration of Philippine cuisine and learn more about living a healthy lifestyle with AARP!
