KUCHING: Yayasan Perpaduan Sarawak (YPS) will conduct its sixth webinar, a series from Things That Bind Us (TTBU) titled Sarawak’s Unique Delicacies; The Craft of Food Preservation via Zoom tomorrow.
According to YPS in a statement, the webinar will be moderated by Head of Programme Culinary Arts from i-CATS University College, Nur Qamariyah Khan Akhtar Khan.
This episode of TTBU aims to understand the various types of traditional food preservation in Sarawak, as well as the challenges to conserving these traditional food preservations besides exploring the business prospects of Sarawak’s traditional food preservation industry, highlighting its shared characteristics, and cultivating Sarawakian unity through shared history, culture, and traditions.
Apart from that, Helong Ajang, owner of The Longboat, and Jimas Jihel, co-founder of Awah Cafe, have also been invited by YPS to speak about food preservation in Sarawak.
YPS said that food preservation is a method that is still in use today – a practice that was commonly employed in the past to keep fresh goods from spoiling, and it entails preparations, equipment, ingredients, and ways of processing.
“Every ethnic group in Sarawak has its own set of methods and practices. Sarawak’s distinct culture and traditions encourage Sarawakians to get together to learn about these unique delights.
“Food is what has brought us together and strengthens communal solidarity in Sarawak,” it added.
In this webinar session, the attendees will learn more about the craft of food preservation in Sarawak.
