Congratulations, PACE Manila!

Professional Academy for Culinary Education or PACE recently emerged as the 2019 overall champion at the 2019 Philippine Culinary Cup.

The culinary competition was held at SMX Convention last August 7 to 10.

Last year, The Eatventurers celebrated with PACE in its success at the 2018 edition of the Philippine Culinary Cup. This competition is endorsed by World Association of Chef Societies.

They then sent a team to 11 categories, represented by 27 professionals and students, and they managed to have a podium finish with 5 gold, 13 silver and 21 bronze medals. 

This year, PACE team mentored by Chef Abner Lowell Cauilan, Chef Jose Amadeo “Menoy” Gimenez and Chef Bong Villanueva, managed to bag awards again and became the 2019 overall champion in the non-professional division.

In view of that we are sharing our experience with PACE in their victory last year.

Here are some of the degustation we captured in August last year during the PACE's buffet appreciation dinner.
