Kamayan is a Tagalog word that translates to “by hand” and refers to a traditional Filipino style of eating—communally, and without plates or utensils. A typical kamayan meal features a table covered in banana leaves which is then artfully arranged with a variety of traditional Filipino dishes served rice, condiments and garnishes. Maria Polotan of Mama Linda’s has taken the fun culinary experience of kamayan, and packed it up to go in a delicious meal showcasing the flavours and traditions of Filipino cuisine.
