ABOUT THE 14th ADOBO FESTIVAL:
Continuously for the past 13 years, food enthusiasts from all around have gathered every Cinco de Noviembre at the Balay Negrense to share a gustatory experience, the annual Adobo Festival, in line with our observance of Cinco de Noviembre Celebration in the City of Silay.
The Adobo Festival, endorsed and supported by the Department of Tourism and the City Government of Silay headed by Mayor Jose “Oti” Montelibano, features an Adobo Cooking Competition which has been a testimony of our mark as Filipinos – Adobo being a dish prepared by our ancestors long before the Chinese traders came to the Philippines and the Spaniards colonized us.
Now on our 14th year, the Negros Cultural Foundation once again brings together culinary experts, cooking aficionados and budding chefs from all over the Visayas to challenge to come up with new tastes for this tried and tested Filipino dish. To add to the excitement, we also celebrate the 6th year of the Muscovado cooking competition which has produced a rich harvest of recipes using muscovado sugar as main ingredient.We strongly urge for the local government units to send as many contestants as they can for our Adobo Cooking Competition (One Visayas Challenge – LGU Category) to officially represent your LGU. This category hopes to marry history, culture and culinary arts and the use of authentic Adobo recipes. Your official representatives may also highlight their recipes with your LGU’s most famous product as the main ingredient.
We also have the Category for Aspiring Chefs to concoct new recipes based by the well-loved Filipino dish. This is open to culinary students, food lovers, cooking enthusiasts, amateur chefs and best home cooks.
