Arroyo welcomes Duterte to Kapampangan food fest
The bond between former president Gloria Macapagal Arroyo and President Rodrigo Duterte was once again seen when the President attended a culinary event in the former’s home province.
Arroyo, now the representative of Pampanga’s second legislative district, welcomed the President to the first Kapampangan Food Festival on Thursday, December 7, at the Clark Freeport Zone in Angeles City.
Pampanga Gov. Lilia Pineda also joined the two in touring the food stalls which showcased the province’s culinary masterpieces, with a wide variety of famous Filipino and Kapampangan dishes.
Municipalities and cities in the province each offered their own “lutong barrio” for the main course, which included dishes such as Pork Belly Bringhe, Kilayin, Morcon, Maya-Maya Mayonesa, Chicken Galantina, Camaro Taco, Relyenong Batute, Pindang Damulag, Pancit Luglug, Asadong Dila, and Kalderetang Kambing.
Sections for salad, soup, dessert and appetizers featured popular Filipino dishes.
The food festival, initiated by Culinarya Pampanga, was held to promote Pampanga as the “Cuisine Capital of the World.” It coincided with the weeklong celebration of the province’s 446th founding anniversary.
