Kuya Ja’s Kinamot
Monday, January 11, 2021
Join the Bailliage of Greater Washington on Zoom as we gather on-line to welcome 2021 with a spectacular delivered feast by Chef Javier Fernandez. Known as kinamot, this 12-course meal (including 2 desserts) is served on a bed of banana leaves and white rice and is typically eaten with your hands! It is a food experience which embodies the “food is love” ethos of the Philippines. Dessert is by Kuya Ja’s sister restaurant Gwenie’s Pastries. Chef Fernandez will join us on Zoom to discuss his cuisine and answer your questions.
“The name tells you what to order…slow-cooked pork that gets its savor from lemongrass, pineapple and garlic … its sound effects from mahogany skin that breaks apart like glass.” Tom Sietsema, Washington Post
Each order will have enough food for at least two people (or two+ meals for one person) and will be accompanied by a bottle of wine selected from the D.C. Chaîne’s wine cellar. It will be delivered to your home between 2 and 5 pm on Monday, January 11th. . Instructions for re-heating (you will need an oven) will be included. Due to the great variety of food included in the Kinamot we cannot accommodate any special dietary requests for this event. The meal includes roasted pork, fish, chicken, shellfish (shrimp), peanuts, vegetables, and various sauces among numerous other elements.
