The triumph of the Filipino Spirit Celebrated by Tanduay
Tanduay Rum USA has been honoured to be part of the “Regional Filipino Celebration” dinner at the James Beard House to present its “distinctly Filipino” rum.
Kevin Diedrich, Pacific Cocktail Haven, San Francisco, and Tim Walters, Tanduay Brand Ambassador, have said that both of them have prepared cocktails inspired by the flavours that are native to the Philippines, to be served to it’s distinguished members and guests for the evening.
This event which showcases a shared goal to preserve, promote, and develop Filipino cuisine is presented by San Francisco-based JBKollaborations in partnership with Filipino Food Movement.
The “Sumatra Kula”, originated by Don the Beachcomber in the 1930’s as a triubute to the Philippine rum’s history in the Tiki Movement, will be served by Tim Walters.
Kevin Diedrich will be serving the “Leeward Negroni” and the “Jeepney”, both cocktails that are available at his establishment in San Francisco.
“I’m honoured to be making cocktails at the James Beard House with Tanduay Rum. We use a lot of Philippine flavours in our cocktails at Pacific Cocktail Haven, so it only seems natural to be using Tanduay Rum to highlight them,” said Diedrich.
With the Filipino Food Movement spreading all over the United States, chefs presenting Filipino cuisine are slowly being given their due spotlight as they express the cultural influence of their Filipino roots.
The time has come for many FilAm chefs—especially those that have chosen to highlight their regional and cultural sensibilities through their culinary art—to be celebrated.
The triumph of the Filipino Spirit is celebrated by Tanduay. The brand also celebrates the chefs who are presenting at the James Beard House Foundation for this historic moment for themselves and the Filipino American community at large.
