“RECIPES for Keeps” is a lockdown project of the European Network of Filipino Diaspora – Austria (ENFiD-Austria) in lieu of its activities and events which were either cancelled or re-scheduled to 2021 due to the CoViD-19 pandemic. What started out as a simple cookbook for its members, became a collection of recipes developed while sheltering in place, consisting of 79 mouth watering recipes from 46 contributors from 5 continents across the world: Asia, Australia/Oceania, Europe, North America, South America.

For Ana Maria Langer, ENFiD Auditor, Cookbook Coordinator, who developed the concept, edited and produced the book, this project turned out to be an enjoyable journey of discovery as she consolidated diverse cuisines, heirloom recipes and unique cooking methods.

The multigenerational contributors who shared one or more of their heirloom family recipes are from different backgrounds with varied levels of cooking expertise: from a young boy of 13 in Vienna to a 94 year old grandma in Cavite – from chefs and hobby cooks, restaurateurs and food bloggers, diplomats and influencers, musicians and beauty queens, international civil servants, nurses and housewives , which makes this collection of recipes uniquely interesting. Join the virtual global book launching on Sunday, 13 December 2020, 16:00. Check time at your location via: https://www.worldtimebuddy.com)

Founded in Vienna on 15 October 2017, the European Network of Filipino Diaspora

Austria (ENFiD-Austria) is among the 19 member countries oft he Europe wide organization, ENFiD (website: ENFiD – Connecting Filipinos in Europe)

Despite its relatively short existence and with only 7 adult and 2 youth members, it has already made a name in the Filipino and international community, through the various activities and events it has organized and the projects it has undertaken, aligned with the Mission and Vision of ENFiD within the framework of the four major programmes and advocacies. These programmes include: Educate and Learn, Embrace the Environment, Elevate Arts, Culture and Sports and Empower Euro Pinoy Youth.

Establishing and strengthening synergies in the diaspora locally and globally, this is the raison d‘ etre of ENFiD-Austria. „Together-Stronger“—a mantra that has kept ENFiD-Austria going. Facing challenges in the midst of the CoViD-19 pandemic, the Organization has not been derailed nor has it wavered in its resolve towards the realization of beneficial synergies in the diaspora.

According to HE Maria Cleofe R. Natividad, Ambassador of the Philippines to the Republic of Austria with concurrent jurisdiction over the Republic of Croatia, Republic of Slovenia and the Slovak Republic:„The recipes in this book neither pretend tob e products of „culinary engineering“ nor aspire tob e creations of „molecular gastronomy“. They are instead labors of passion that are so assured, they need only be measured against a single standard whether they generate happiness. They also have the added value of enabling us to experience one of the few luxuries of these times: to travel on our tastebuds“.
