DAGUPAN CITY, April 28 –Visitors, balikbayans and local folks savored for free the different international recipes prepared out of the tasty Dagupan bangus during the Bangus International Cuisine Showcase, or bangusine, held at the city plaza here on Monday.

The crowd became even more excited when GMA Kapuso star Camille Pratts appeared and cooked her own favorite dish – the Dagupan bangus belly steak as a special event.

At least eight universities and colleges; three groups from the Indian community, Japan and Korea; and a restaurant joined this year’s Bangusine.
