“I AM A FILIPINO AND THIS IS HOW WE COOK”

MAY 5, 2019, Bedford, MA

Nicole Ponseca, book author, entrepreneur/restaurant owner visited Iskwelahang Pilipino on a regular Sunday session. She judged the annual ‘Lutuan cook-off” along with another food author, Regina Tolentino Newport, as they inspired our future chefs with encouraging words. Nicole later sat down with the community and talked about her pride growing up as a Filipino-American in San Diego and now living in the East making Filipino food mainstream in the culinary world with her new book, I Am A Filipino and This is How we Cook, a 2019 James Beard Foundation Book Award finalist.

                                                                                                  

 

NEFFA 2019 – WAITING IN THE WINGS

Iskwelahang Pilipino represented the Philippines at the annual New England Folk Festival (NEFFA) at Mansfield, MA. The repertoire included the “Bendian” (Benguet Circle dance), Rain Dance (Ifugao), Ragragsakan and Banga (Kalinga dances). All four performances represented the Cordillera Region of Luzon. Our performers did a wonderful job exuding confidence and pride. Photos show the excitement while waiting for their cue. Bravo IP!

Iskwelahang Pilipino (IP)  is a non-profit Filipino cultural school that brings together families from the Greater Boston area who share a connection to the Philippines.  Founded over 40 years ago (1976) by a group of parents and educators, IP offers families a welcoming community that embraces Filipino culture and provides Filipino American children with the opportunity to learn about their Filipino heritage in a nurturing environment.  Our vibrant, actively engaged community is made up of parents, students, alumni, friends and supporters of IP from immigrant families, second and third generation Filipino American families, adoptive and multiracial families.
