    13. 14. <ul><li>What is unique in the Sariayahin’s pinagong is its consumption which involves dipping into black coffee and allowing its sweetness to approximate the flavor of the creamer. </li></ul>
    14. 15. <ul><li>More important however is the sense of ownership and pride that Sariayahins have manifested in the product, claiming that Sariaya pinagong is better than those produced in other places. </li></ul>
    15. 16. <ul><li>Truly, the greater enthusiasm that the Sariayahins have shown in the production and consumption of the pinagong has given it a Sariayahin character . </li></ul>

    19. 20. <ul><li>Being at the heart of the Southern Tagalog region, Sariaya’s food culture bears the mark of a hybrid character. </li></ul><ul><li>It is a product of the fusion and eclecticism of the Sariaya culture and that of the western and other neighboring areas’ culture. </li></ul>
    20. 21. <ul><li>Sariayahins are aware of these fact - that these delicacies are of foreign origin, Nilupak being not exclusively Sariaya (or Quezon), pinagong being Lucban in origin and lambanog being associated with the people of nearby Batangas. </li></ul>
    21. 22. Recommendations <ul><li>Harness the potential of Sariaya cuisine in developing tourismic products, these having developed a distinct Sariayahin character. </li></ul><ul><li>Flesh out the meanings and values that are shared by the Sariaya folks in the production and consumption of these products for better appreciation by tourists. </li></ul>
