Filipino Independence Day Picnic & Cooking Contest/Demo June 7 in Warren [DTW]
The Filipino American Community Council of Michigan is putting on a Kalayaan picnic Saturday after next at Hamlich Park on 13 Mile east of Dequindre. While it is tough to prepare great food for a crowd, this still could be interesting from a foodie perspective. There is a contest to see who makes the best Adobo (hopefully more than just the judges can taste… or maybe it is determined by crowd vote!??). Also, there will be a Lechon cooking demonstration, which I’m guessing will turn out to be (small pig) pork belly, as opposed to a whole suckling pig.
