"Magnifico!" That, in a word, is the essence of food. Delectable, irresistible, magical, lighting fires in the heart. Once again, the most sought-after Filipino dish, Adobo, is coming your way. J.S. Camins Productions in cooperation with Fil-Am Association of Milpitas Corp. and the City of Milpitas is whipping up a double whammy feast for the senses with the second tour of the 8th Annual "Adobo Festival" Saturday, August 31 and Sunday, September 1 at the Milpitas Sports Center.
For the past seven years, the "Adobo Festival" has traveled around Northern California to celebrate Filipino food and music. The festival has been held in Daly City, Newark, Union City, San Jose, Stockton, Sacramento, and Martinez.
This year, a lineup of activities will provide another awesome experience centered on good food. The primary offering is Adobo, a stew created through a unique Filipino cooking process. For both culinary masters and novices, this savory delight will highlight the fun and excitement of festival activities. An Adobo contest will offer attendees a chance to taste entries and regional variations of the unofficial national dish of the Philippines.
Non-stop live entertainment from local talent includes an appearance of Lani Misalucha, Asia's Nightingale, who will also be available for a meet and greet. And don't miss a Kiddie Popstar Contest (open to ages 4 - 10) for youngsters to show off their singing prowess.
A wide variety of products and foods await one and all as well as a chance to win a round trip ticket to Hawaii sponsored by Mango Tours. There is also the opportunity to win free balikbayan boxes certificates from LBC, gift certificates from Goldilocks and Island Pacific Super Market, and gift baskets from Mama Sita and UFC.Phil.
