Filipino social media users rallied online to criticize the Philippine government’s effort to “standardize” adobo, lechon, sinigang and other famous Filipino dish recipes.
What happened: On July 9, the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) announced BPS/TC 92, a new committee that will develop the Philippine National Standards (PNS) when it comes to preparing Filipino dishes, according to Asian Journal.
Singer and actress Selena Gomez made a beloved Filipino dish with celebrity chef Jordan Andino for the cooking show “Selena + Chef.”
While quarantining last year, Gomez created her unscripted series, according to MSN. Every episode features a celebrity chef, and this upcoming second season will include Marcela Valladolid, Aarti Sequeira, JJ Johnson and José Andrés, among others.
