    After spending some time overseas in Philippines with family this past November, I also took some time to work with a few local restaurant chefs to deepen my love of Filipino culture and cuisine. As a result, I'm offering a special dinner and extending an invite to LTHForum members to share some Filipino favorites. Hope to see some familiar and new faces! ... 6686064468
