Held from September 27-October 1, 2017 at the Glorietta Activity Center in Makati, it was anchored on the theme “Food for Thought” which will highlight popular Negrense cuisine, the best Negrense chefs and the best locally sourced ingredients.
Negrosanon-inspired products taking center stage include poultry meat products (chicken, duck, lamb), dried fish, fresh seafood (including blue crabs), and a soothing array of locally-produced tea or coffee paired with an assortment of delectable Negrosanon-inspired ready-to-eat finger foods and pastries.
