May this encourage fellow Kapampangans to unceasingly take pride, protect and preserve our passion for cooking and our heirloom recipes. Additionally, may it inspire our local leaders in the province to sustain this initiated project by fervently supporting and the possibility of institutionalizing it to ensure continuous sharing of Kapampangan cuisine to all parts of the country from this day forward,” de Castro added.
