Following the success of last year’s participation to the biggest gastronomical event to happen in the country, Mayor Beng Climaco once again gives the City Tourism Office the go signal to join in this year’s equally anticipated Madrid Fusion Manila (MFM) 2016 happening at the SMX Convention Center of the Mall of Asia on April 7 to 9, 2016.

This year, this international event offers more food options and an even more impressive line-up of speakers during the International Gastronomy Congress. These speakers include famous Filipino and internationally-acclaimed Chefs.

Madrid Fusion Manila (MFM) is the first and only Asian edition of Madrid Fusion, the most important international gastronomy congress in the world, celebrated annually in Madrid since 2003. MFM gathers the most acclaimed avant-garde chefs from across the globe. The theme of Madrid Fusion Manila 2016 shall be: “‘The Manila Galleon: East Meets West’, expanding the gastronomic conversation further, not only between two countries but between two very different parts of the world.”

Last year, the MFM 2015 garnered positive reviews and created an international buzz in the culinary field which included our very own Chavacano cuisines and delicacies.

The city’s participation this year is anchored on showcasing the fusion of local and international flavors of the Chabacano cuisines that have maintained its distinct taste through time. City Tourism Officer Sarita Sebastian shall once again lead the Zamboanga City team to participate this year.

The Madrid Fusion Manila 2016 is organized by the Department of Tourism (DoT) the Tourism Promotions Board (TPB), along with Madrid Fusión organizers Foro de Debate and Arum Estrategias de Internacionalización.
