This month’s CGM Talk aims to promote Cebuano food by sharing knowledge on how they are prepared thereby encouraging the public to appreciate Cebuano and Filipino food even more.

“These are street food that you find every day, by preparing it in a different way, we get to elevate its taste. By focusing on street food or traditional Cebuano snacks, we are trying to also promote their nutritional value as much as we are trying to make the public aware that merienda food can be prepared and presented In different ways,” stated Florencio Moreño, curator of the Casa Gorordo Museum.
