Made in Spain: Pork Love at Madrid Fusion Manila 2016

A shared history binds both Spain and the Philippines together in a bond so strong, it's seen, felt and experienced in the rich local cultural heritage and religious traditions to this day. But for me, the connection between Spain and the Philippines is evident with the shared love for pork...  


This porcine love is at the very center of any celebratory feast, from the Filipino Lechon and the Spanish Jamon. At the recent Madrid Fusion Manila 2016, Spain's Interporc, a professional industry association recognized by the Spanish Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Environment, showcased the very best Spanish white pork with its Jamon Serrano and culinary creations by award-winning chef, Ivan Cerdeno. It's definitely pork love at Madrid Fusion Manila 2016...
