The Provincial Tourism and Cultural Affairs Office (PTCAO) will again stage the Streetfood Festival on July 15 in view of the Small and Medium Enterprises (SME) Week celebration.
PTCAO head Alphonsus Tesoro said that the Streetfood Festival will once again feature popular Capiznon street foods near Dr. Jose Rizal monument in front of the Provincial Capitol here.
“We encouraged the participating streetfood vendors to develop and showcase seafood-based streetfood during the festival,” he added.
The participating vendors are among those who attended the a two-day streetfood culinary seminar-workshop conducted by the Department of Tourism (DOT) – 6 and PTCAO last May.
The training was designed to teach the participants knowledge on basic hygiene, kitchen safety and sanitation, plating and presentation which are important elements in providing quality streetfood and quality service to their respective customers.
Streetfood are among PTCAO’s latest innovations to promote the province among local and foreign tourists.
The first streetfood festival in time with the June 12 Independence Day celebration was witnessed and savoured by the cluster heads of the various ethno-linguistic groups in Central Visayas, among others.PIA -6
