Farm to Turntable was born out of the idea of 2 guys over lunch. One guy does food that is made farm to table (local, seasonal, and as much as possible organic ingredients) and inspired by Filipino roots and the other guy does music. With the help of local chefs, foodies, those wanting to explore Filipino food, and those curious to revisit their roots (like me) came together and packed the house at Fluxx Night Club to eat, drink, and even learn about the happenings in Filipino food, people, and the homeland Philippines. Here is the our video of the night:
This event was brought together by Onoyum.com. Tickets were available pre-sale on their site for $30/pp or at the door for $50/pp. They plan to do more of these in the future, so if you are interested the next one, follow Onoyum.com via blog or their Instagram account. They’ve listed all the participants of the night here.
My husband and I had an awesome time. Glad we went. We almost did not but Edwin of Cork & Craft said to make it happen… and so we did. I don’t even personally know the guy, lol. But I also went because I felt the need to support my roots and my people in their endeavors ESPECIALLY when they are using local and organic and top-notch grass fed meats. Such is all I have in my kitchen when it comes to my home cooking. I never thought I would see this level of quality ingredients highlighted in Filipino food (farm to table is relatively a new concept) and so glad to be wrong. These ingredients don’t come cheap but they make for better food and food worth spending money on. If they were using conventional ingredients, I would have probably stayed home. That sounds bad but it’s true.
Did you get to go? And if so, what was your favorite?
Incase you missed it, no worries. I spoke to Onoyum after the event and they said they will be doing this again, tbd. For now, they do have an event in May called I Love Poke! Oooooh!!!
