The Cordillera Administrative Region (CAR) recently held its first-ever culinary fair in Baguio City to honor the traditional cuisine in the region.
The Department of Tourism (DOT) in partnership with Tourism Promotions Board (TPB), Department of Agriculture (DA), and Baguio City made the event "The Cordillera Food Fair: Mangan Taku" possible.
According to Marie Venus Tan, COO of TPB "Cordillera cuisine’s time has come. Tourism nowadays is immersive. People want to experience everything. Tourism should be sensory. A feast for the eye. You feel it. You see it. Most important is you taste it. Food is the center of our culture. We must give it a chance".
“Mangan Taku literally means let’s eat. But more than an invitation to partake on the food is a social call and a greeting,” DOT-Cordillera Administrative Region (CAR) Officer-in-Charge Jovita Ganongan said.
Mangan Taku is still open until Sunday, April 14.
