No Passport required To taste Our Filipino Food

In January, Chef Marcus Samuelsson become noticed round Capitol Hill and Pike vicinity Market, and the Twitterati speculated on where the megastar of PBS’ “No Passport Required” turned into chowing down round city.
You’ll discover this Friday (Dec. 13, 9 p.M., PBS) within the premiere of the 2nd season of a food reveal that peeks into the day by day lives of immigrant and refugee communities through the prism of their traditions and cuisine.
Within the Seattle episode, Samuelson focuses the lens on our Filipino scene, a meals lifestyle that, in evaluation to different Asian organisations, is woefully underrepresented in a whole lot mainstream chatter about meals.

“Filipino American is the second-largest Asian immigrant community in this country and additionally makes up about 3% of the inhabitants in Seattle,” Samuelsson says throughout the exhibit. “but most american citizens haven't any clue what is a Filipino dish.”
Therefore begins a meals-hopping, speedy-moving 55 minutes the place Samuelsson bounces around the Sound with native Filipino American chef Melissa Miranda. He plops down on a crate by means of a automobile parking space to pattern pork blood stew with Blue students rapper and co-founding father of Hood noted Bakeshop, Geo Quibuyen. He ventures north to hang out alongside a chilly pier within the useless of wintry weather to are trying his hand at squid jigging with chef Brian Madayag of Barkada, the Filipino Hawaiian restaurant in Edmonds.
Lamentably, two pit stops the television crew made — at East buying and selling Co. On Capitol Hill and Ludi’s in downtown — have considering closed. And the Filipino communities within the South conclusion received’t be happy that two normal Filipino hangouts in the Tukwila area, Max’s and Jollibee, didn’t get a shout out. To be reasonable, they are only chain eating places. (hiya, I’m just the messenger. Send your complaints to the producers of “No Passport Required.”)
