To celebrate Filipino cooking, we created a buffet-style, mouth-watering finger food kamayan menu featuring seafood, grilled meats, vegetables and garlic rice. No plates or utensils are used—in Tagalog, kamayan means “by hand.” Simply scoop up some rice, press it into your palm, add some meat and veggies, and pop it into your mouth. Note: These recipes can be easily doubled or tripled for a truly epic feast.
