DISH: KAMAYAN FEAST

Canada’s 100 Best - - Stuff We Love -

Kamayan cui­sine comes from the Filipino word ka­may, mean­ing “hands.” The meal may be the lat­est In­sta­gram sen­sa­tion, but the Filipino tra­di­tion of serv­ing a moun­tain of grilled fish, meat and fruit on a lush banana leaf has been around for far longer than the photo-shar­ing app. An as­sort­ment of grilled squid, prawns, mus­sels, tilapia and milk­fish —the na­tional fish of the Philip­pines—pro­vides a gold­mine of oceanic tastes and cam­era-friendly shapes and colours. Us­ing banana leaf in lieu of a plate is part of Kamayan tra­di­tion, but it also serves to lighten the seafood and meat­based dish with a lively green hue. —C.M.
