Mercado of Tourism Management explores Luzon Island’s culinary safeguarding culture of pancit

Mr. Jame Monren T. Mercado, a faculty member of the Department of Tourism Management and research associate of the Research Center for Social Sciences and Education, recently published an article entitled “Pancit: Explicating the Culinary Safeguarding Culture of Philippine Noodles – The Case of Luzon Island,” in which he documented via the case study approach the ways by which Filipinos in Luzon Island performed culinary safeguarding culture on panic.

Using an array of qualitative tools, such as interviews, observations, archival analysis, and video and photography interpretation, the findings were analyzed using repertory gridding. The study provides a “viable basis [for] conceptualizing a culinary safeguarding plan, which promotes sustainability, inclusive growth, and development.”

Mercado’s paper was published in the Journal of Culinary Science and Technology, and is an extension of the project funded by the National Commission for Culture and the Arts, which also conferred upon Mercado the 2019 NCCA Research Award – Individual Category.
