Free event

This will be a cooking demonstration by Chef Praxedes S. Embalzado of how to make Puso Tinibig or sometimes referred to as hanging rice.

Puso Tinigib is a common street food in Cebu as it is a an artful way of weaving a young coconut leaf into a pouch and, when the work is almost finished, a measured amount of washed grains of rice is place inside, sealed and cooked in water. However, as rice is not traditionally grown in Cebu, the recipe in Cebu uses the milled Tinigib White Corn that is an Ark of Taste product.

Corn is an important food crop in the Philippines, a staple food of 20% of the Filipino population, primarily in the regions of the Visayas and Mindanao. However, Tinigib White Corn is no longer sold in the market and very few farmers grow it for personal consumption only. The purpose of this event is therefore to bring back the Tinigib Corn as a staple food for Cebuanos also because it is a healthy ingredient.
