Although rice is probably the biggest constant in Filipino food, there are a variety of foods that many Americans may not be familiar with. And Albert Santos has worked in several areas of The Phillipines studying agriculture and working with plants and people across the way. And he has made sure that I got lots of opportunities to enjoy Filipino food & farms.
Albert is originally from the Philippines but has lived in the US for a long time, though he stays in touch with friends in agriculture there. And he's brought a lot of Filipino cuisine with him -- he even grows a vegetable called bitter gourd (or ampalaya) in his backyard!
