Food is history

Kainan Na (Let’s Eat) focuses on how multiracial Filipinos can reconnect with their identities through food, despite colonial influences on Filipino cuisine. The project explores indigenous Filipino food, foreign influences from China and Spain, and the impact of Spanish and American colonization, emphasizing the importance of Filipino cuisine in preserving cultural identity. Through in-depth research for four months, I spent the next four months creating a website as the design output with the guiding question – “With food being one of the few means to connect with our culture, how can Filipino immigrants reconnect with their identities when the national palate is a heavy byproduct of multiple colonialism?”
