As the name of the exhibit implies, “Lutu-lutuan” is a celebration of Philippine cuisine, represented by children dressed in traditional garb, preparing classic Filipino dishes such as ube and ginataan.

This reminds us of the days when we were young, when we would play by pretending to cook using various things found around the house as make-shift cookware and ingredients. It gives a sense of nostalgia.
