Pangasinense chefs clash anew for Pista’y Dayat Culinary Challenge, dubbed ‘Ponsia’

Lingayen, Pangasinan—Pangasinense Chefs will take the centerstage as they showcase their talents for cooking in the Pista’y Dayat Culinary Challenge on April 13 from 8:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. at the Pangasinan Training and Development Center II (PTDC II) here.

Dubbed “Ponsia,” a Pangasinan term for ‘feast’ was conceptualized in 2023 to celebrate the province’s rich culinary heritage and abundant food resources.

Featuring local dishes, the cooking challenge was further conducted in celebration of the annual Filipino Food Month as proclaimed through Presidential Proclamation 469.

GMA Farm to Table Host and Pinoy MasterChef JR Royol will spearhead the culinary challenge, which serves as one of the highlights of Pista’y Dayat 2024 and will run from April 5 until May 3.

Expected to grace the occasion will be the Department of Tourism Region I and the country’s top media and content creators participating in this year’s NLEX Lakbay Norte Pangasinan Tour.

Meanwhile, the national and local media partners of the provincial government are likewise invited to the Pista’y Dayat Culinary Challenge.

The event will be streamed live on the Province of Pangasinan facebook page.
