About Metro Cuisine:

The Metro Cuisine: Cosmopolitan Finger Foods is a unique recipe book that reflects the present-day cosmopolitan Filipino migrant who retains his cultural roots while embracing influences brought by other cultures. This recipe book, which was more than two years in the making, features more than 60 finger food recipes contributed by UP alumni members, Filipino dignitaries, Filipino Muslim converts, and overseas domestic Filipino workers in Singapore.

The proceeds from the sponsorships and sales of the book will be dedicated to the Endowment Fund of the UPAAS scholarship. The UPAAS scholarship currently supports four students embarking on a full-time, four-year degree program.

The Endowment Fund aims to support four UP students on any UP campus at any given time. This is in line with the UPAAS objective of supporting the University of the Philippines’ vital role in the development of the Philippine society and the Filipino nation while contributing to sustainable poverty alleviation initiatives in our country.
