Welcome to Episode 55! Ready for another episode on one of our favorite subjects? That’s right, it’s food time again! Today we talk about the history of Filipino food, one of the most unique foods around for its embrace of a variety of cultural cuisines that have influenced the ingredients and flavors over the centuries in the Philippines. From traders to colonialism, there are many influences to what’s considered traditional Filipino cuisine. We close the episode with another segment of Say What? This time we take on the term “Shanghai’d” or “Shanghaing.” Where did this weird and racist term come from? How is it still used today? If you want to follow some amazing Filipino chefs, check out Melissa Miranda, Dale Talde, and Jordan Andino just as a start. To learn more, please visit our site at or for social media.
