Shangri-La Hotel, Sydney’s executive chef Hemant Dadlani is pleased to celebrate a moving feast and host the Festival at Café Mix.

“The taste of Filipino food relies entirely on acids and sweetness, perhaps more than any other cuisine,” says Dadlani. “Our guest chefs from Shangri-La at the Fort, Manila, will showcase flavourful dishes which will truly captivate the essences for which Philippine culture is known.”
