Stop for a futuristic feast on the BGC Food Tour
(The Philippine Star) - July 24, 2014 - 12:00am

MANILA, Philippines - Locusts, earthworms, and seaweed. These are just some of the so-called “climate change” ingredients you will find in the dishes designed by seasoned chefs such as Green chef Sau del Rosario and Nancy Reyes Lumen for “Future Feast,” the culminating event of “The Apocalypse Project: Imagined Futures” at the Mind Museum in Bonifacio Global City (BGC) in Taguig.

Future Feast is also one of the stops in the BGC Eats 2014 Food Tour, now on its second year after its successful run last year. Curated by chef-writer JJ Yulo, it includes four different tours with four different themes, featuring four restaurants each.

Tour 1 takes place on Saturday, July 26. It focuses on the science behind food, with Artha Ting, biologist and “mind mover” from the Mind Museum. Other stops on the tour include the German restaurant and pub Prost Braumeister at the Fort Strip in BGC, as well as Ginny de Guzman’s Gustare for sweet desserts such as meringue kisses, canonigo, and kalamansi sans rival.

Tour 2 on Aug. 2 focuses on the aesthetics of food, featuring tips from food photographer Mylene Chung. Enderun’s assistant dean of hospitality management, Bel Castro, will share her expertise in beverage pairings during Tour 3 on Aug. 9. And Tour 4 on Aug. 16 focuses on healthy eats with Edgy Veggie café owner Denise Celdran.
