David Moscow and family fly to his wife’s homeland to harvest coconuts, rice and seafood for a classic Filipino ceviche by 2019 James Beard nominee, Margarita Manzke of Republique fame. He will learn about the different rice varieties grown locally and for export, and then go into the rice paddies to harvest. David will harvest coconuts, ferment and distill, and try to make the alcohol Lambanog with the help of a small local distiller. He sources shrimp at the nearby Laguna Lake and travels to the distant island of Mindoro to make fish sauce. Finally, he heads back to Manilla to try to make the meal.
