Tagalog for "by hand," kamayan is the traditional Filipino form of eating. This term has also come to refer to a communal-style Filipino feast, composed of colorful arrays of food that are usually served on banana leaves and eaten without utensils.

This communal feast is an opportunity to introduce Filipino cuisine through an eating experience that's aesthetic enough for most elder Filipino to the younger Instagram poster. Through this shared meal format, one that lends itself to closeness and camaraderie, Filipino-American chefs Melvin Trinidad is trying to foster a sense of community.
