SINK YOUR TEETH INTO THE 2016 FOOD ISSUE featuring Sarah Lahbati on the cover. The actress speaks to ESQUIRE about the twists and turns of her rise to stardom, her insatiable voracity for life, and an imminent decision to feed her soul.
Inside, we examine food beyond its deliciousness and edibility. Sarge Lacuesta, Sasha Martinez, and Gian Lao explore our sensual relationships with food in a series of erotic fiction; Clinton Palanca discusses the continual heralding of our cuisine’s time-to-shine; and we speak to the masterminds behind successful Filipino food empires, the Max’s Group and Mang Inasal.
Plus: Charles Englund, Noelle De Jesus, and Joe America provide perspectives on the state of discourse amid our increasingly vitriolic political climate. We debrief a Filipino humanitarian doctor on her work with Doctors Without Borders, consider the art of navigating a buffet, get a taste of Teddy Boy Locsin’s comfort food, and pick out the most classic pieces from H&M’s collaboration with Kenzo.
