Headlined by Chef JP Anglo and Sharwin Tee, the second leg of Food Magazine's Food Tastings event this year paid homage to the wonderful cuisine of our motherland. Aptly entitled "Let's Cook Pinoy," the event gave the attendees a lot of wonderful ideas on how they can put a twist to classic Filipino recipes. Here's Chef JP's quirky take lapu-lapu:
