At Served Manila’s next event, local chocolate makers will share the sugary secrets of their trade.
Launched April of last year, Served Manila is all about exploring curiosities. They pair subject matter experts on food, beverage, and other of-the-moment interests with those who are looking to learn more about them.
It has built a tasting platform and community in the country that puts together experiences in-home and, hopefully in the not-so-distant future, in person. Served Manila has developed modules on wine, rum, gin, coffee, tea, whisky, selvedge denim, cookies, diet food and more.
Some of its most recent achievements includes becoming the exclusive provider of the Digicon Omni 2020 After-hours as well as being tapped by the Philippine Department of Foreign Affairs for “Fiesta Filipinas.” It’s a six-part multi-sensory online event series showcasing Philippine festivals, culture and traditions to a global audience.
