Chef Yana Gilbuena founded The SALO Project: Cooking and Gathering People in all 50 states through Filipino Food, a traveling Filipino Pop-Up Feast that gathers adventurous diners who dare explore regions of the amazing 7,107-island Philippine archipelago through food beyond adobo and lumpia.

Join them for a five course traditional family style dinner full of extraordinary flavors composed from local and seasonal ingredients, served on banana leaves and eaten old-school sans utensils (kamayan), and an unprecedented opportunity to explore Filipino cuisine in a unique atmosphere.

Portion of the proceeds will be donated to ARK: Advancement for Rural Kids (www.ruralkids.org) to build a school in an area in the Visayas, Philippines struck by Typhoon Haiyan which has a farming and feeding program to empower the youth to be producers not consumers.

Traveling Filipina Chef Yana Gilbuena will have two dinners this week, March 12th and 13th in San Francisco's Mission District. She will have two nights with two exciting menus.
