Amazing One Day Culinary Experience in Quezon Province | Filipino Food and Farm Tour!


Last April 2022, I joined a one day culinary experience (kulinarya tagala) in Quezon Province. It is one of the post tours from the World Travel and Tourism Council which aims to restart our tourism sector and rediscover Philippines' wonderful tourism sites. 

Here's what transpired during the 1-day Quezon food and farm tour:

Visited colorful farm tourism sites and tasted their delicious food. Learned about sustainable aspect of running their farm and getting it ready for tourist to enjoy while learning about the fresh food and local products they offer.

Had a Pahiyas breakfast and pancit habhab experience at Linang Ni Lk. A farm to table restaurant surrounded by coconut trees and beautiful garden along the foothills of Mt. Banahaw.  In its farm-to table restaurant, Cafe Linang, fresh and organic heirloom dishes are also being offered. 

Aside from delicious food and sceneries, there are so many things you can do like fishing, horse back riding and there's also pets roaming around the area.
