Budbud Kabog – a Filipino specialty

Budbud is a popular dish in the Philippines, eaten for breakfast or a snack. It is a delectable treat, made of sticky rice, sugar, and coconut milk, all wrapped in banana leaves. At Christmas, Budbud brings joy to feasts.

In this workshop, the ETH researcher and Philippine native Joan Oñate Narcisco will show you how to cook a special Budbud recipe- one that contains kabog millet instead of rice.

Kabog is an ancient Philippine crop that is only cultivated on the islands of Cebu. The name comes from a legend: once upon a time, a Cebuano farmer found small millet grains scattered across the floor of a cave. He discovered that the cave bats (kabog, in the local language) were gathering and eating the millet! The famer then took some grains home to try himself. He pounded them and added sugar, thus creating a delicious dish: Budbud kabog.

Joan knows just about everything about kabog millet. She studies the health benefits of this ancient grain. She also works with farmers to help preserve it for future generations. Join her to cook this very special treat and learn more about kabog!

This workshop is part of the special exhibition “Forschung zum Aufessen” (Science on Your Plate) and will be held in english.
