That 4-hour Lunch

















FROM FIDDLEHEAD FERN TO FERMENTED RICE TO MUSCOVADO SUGAR CUBES. The ten glorious courses of creatively concocted PampangueƱo fare at artist Claude Tayag's wooden house was an experience worth the drive, the 4-hour gluttony and the resulting belly bloat.

With the lady of the house introducing each dish's history and heritage, as well as the artist himself conducting a post-lunch tour of his workshop and 2nd-floor living quarters, Bale Dutung deserves a pushpin as a notable destination for any lover of food, art and culture.

It's got one of mine!
