Mama Sita Launches Mini-Docus on the Food of Our Ancestors

Philippine Association of Condiments Producers, Inc. and Mama Sita Foundation launched on 18 March 2021 Pagkain Natin!, a ten-part mini-documentary series about the food of our ancestors from at least 500 years ago or earlier. Conceptualized and written by food historian Felice Prudent Sta. Maria, the project is in solidarity with the 2021 Quincentennial Commemorations in the Philippines.

The launching coincided with the 500th anniversary of the Humanity at Homonhon on 18 March 2021. All the documentaries will be streamed by the Radio-Television Malacañang until 28 October 2021 on the Facebook pages of the National Quincentennial Committee and Mama Sita’s Mga Kwentong Pagkain.
