15 May Enderun Colleges Students and Alumni Volunteer for Madrid Fusion Manila
From 24 to 26 April 2015, over 40 students and alumni of Enderun Colleges volunteered to provide assistance at the First Madrid Fusion Manila. The hard-working volunteers did not hesitate to accept any task that was assigned to them, including ushering, prepping, plating, serving and stewarding.
Enderun culinary volunteers Cirene Chua and Juan Miguel Vengco assisted two speakers from the gastronomy congress – acclaimed Chef Andre Chiang of Restaurant Andre and 3 Michelin starred Chef Alvin Leung of Bo Innovation. Enderun students and alumni were also assigned to the Regional Luncheons, where well-known Philippine-based chefs prepared Filipino dishes from Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao using local ingredients. Culinary students and alumni worked as assistants to these chefs, including Fernando Aracama, Robby Goco, Jordy Navarra, Bruce Ricketts, Enting Lobaton, Juan Carlos de Terry, and Happy Ongpauco-Tiu.
Madrid Fusion is a well-known Spanish gastronomy congress that brings together the most prestigious and innovative chefs from all over the world. It has a solid 12-year track record of bridging cultures through good food. It is also where the world goes to see the future of food. This is the first time the famed event was held in Manila. Madrid Fusion Manila is a joint partnership among the Philippines’ Department of Tourism (DoT), the Tourism Promotions Board (TPB) and Department of Agriculture (DA).
