Big Bite! The Northern Food Festival is happening once again at MarQuee Mall in Angeles City, Pampanga on October 16, 17 and 18. This event is made possible through the collaboration of Department of Tourism, Department of Trade and Industry, Angeles City Tourism Office, North Luzon Expressway and Lifestyle Network.
Big Bite will delight festival goers with food markets, “Sisig Festival”, cooking demos, culinary cook-offs and live entertainment.
Currently on its third year, the gastronomic feast will feature over 100 food merchants from Regions I,II, III and the Cordillera Administrative Region with regional specialties like condiments, spices, coffee and jams, as well as local favorites such as the Ilocos empanada, bagnet, pastillas and longganisa.
The major highlight of the event is the “Sisig Festival”. Sisig, the quintessential Kapampangan dish, is traditionally made of pork parts, mixed with spices, served on a sizzling plate with a side of calamansi and chili peppers. Other versions of the sisig will be showcased in the food festival, too, such as the bangus sisig from Pangasinan and dinakdakan from Ilocos.
Big Bite is part of Angeles City’s Fiestang Kuliat, a month-long fiesta celebration. This food festival helps boost tourism in the North and reinforces Angeles City’s growing reputation as the culinary capital of the Philippines.
Culinary masters Chef Sau del Rosario, Lifestyle Network’s “Chef Next Door” Jonas Ng and Center for Asian Culinary Studies founder Chef Gene Gonzales will whip up northern favorites during the live cooking demonstrations.
There will also be a 3-day cook-off among top culinary schools from the region.
