Chefs Ed Quimzon (left) and Jason Stacy prepare organic rice with piniñahang manok at the first ever GMO-Free Rice Festival at Mara’s Organic Market in Makati City. The festival is meant to celebrate the diversity of traditional Philippine rice varieties. The event featured seminars and cooking demonstrations on organic rice varieties, including purple, black, brown and red rice, by chefs and food experts Miguel Ongpin, Ed Quimzon, Jason Stacy, Heny Sison, Katrina Ponce Enrile, and Nancy Lumen-Reyes. Highlight of the event was the signing of the GMO-Free Rice Chef’s Charter, a commitment to serve and prepare only non-genetically modified rice—or GMO-free rice—in support of the Greenpeace “I Love my Rice GMO-Free” campaign.
