The Second Edition of “Halin sa Kusina” was launched today at the Ayala Malls Capitol Central Activity Center in Bacolod City as part of this year’s Provincial Tourism Week celebration.
As part of today’s activities, the Food Crawl featured specialties from the several cities and municipalities of the Negros Occidental.
The book features food stories from the people of Negros Occidental, authored by Jo An Corruna.
Governor Lacson said that the book is an excellent way to preserve heirloom recipes that can be passed down through generations.
He also said that Negros Occidental is admittedly one of the prime food destinations in the Philippines and a big part of the Negrense culture relates to food.
“We are best known for our delicious cuisine and the famed Negrense Hospitality,” he said.
The activity, spearheaded by the Negros Occ. Tourism Division led by Provincial Tourism Officer, Cheryl Decena, is attended by tourism officers, tourism workers and stakeholders.
Charina Magallanes – Tan, Executive Assistant to the Governor and PIO, and Provincial Environmental Management Office Head, Atty. Julie Ann Bedrio, were also present.
