Filipinos love food. Nowadays, many people are considering getting culinary courses to suit one's needs, and if you want to take up culinary and other related courses, you can consider enrolling at Enderun Colleges.

Enderun Colleges

Enderun Colleges is an undergraduate college that offers these courses:
  • Bachelor of Science in International Hospitality Management - specializes in hotel administration or culinary arts
  • Bachelor of Science in Business Administration - major in business process management and consulting, finance and wealth management or marketing management

Last Saturday (21 May), I was one of the very few lucky bloggers invited to Discover Cuisine at Enderun Colleges, where they introduced their fifteen-month program in partnership with the Alain Ducasse Formation.

Alain Ducasse is one of the most celebrate of modern French chefs. It was in 2007 that ADF formed an academic partnership with Enderun Colleges (called ADF + Enderun). In this program, students undergo in rigorous training in foundational and cutting-edge culinary methods under the watchful eyes of Alain Ducasse's culinary team, and selected students are actually given the chance to do their internship in France. This programs open in June 2011.

Some pictures I took around the campus:

Facade. One word to describe it: awesome.

Kitchen 2

Kitchen 1. One of the two hot kitchen laboratories. Each kitchen has about 8 workstations, and they allow only two students per workstation.

Kitchen 1

Kitchen 2. The time of our visit, they were having a short culinary course for kids. Aside from this two kitchens, they also have a preparation kitchen and a pastry kitchen laboratory.

Culinary Amphitheater

Culinary Amphitheater. Where students gather knowledge through the words and actions of their professors. On this day, we were there to witness a cooking demo by ADF+Enderun executive chef Marc Chalopin, which I will tackle on a separate post.


Library. Every good school has their own library, and this one houses lots of books and reading materials to give more knowledge to the students.


The Bar. Located just outside of Restaurant 101.

Restaurant 101

Restaurant 101. There are three components to the program: acquiring knowledge, work on the knowledge through the kitchen and apply the knowledge by serving foods at the Restaurant 101. We were also treated to a sumptuous lunch that day, which will also be shared on a different post.

Jenn, the Foodie

I come from a family who loves cooking and eating. I never had any formal training in cooking and that I taught myself how to cook based on the handed down recipes, but I could say that I can cook good food. In 2008, I started documenting my food trips for my travel blog, and since I have quite enough to start a food blog, might as well put all those food trips in one location. Thus, a food blog is born - thanks to the new Friendster Blogs. However, due to several problems, I was left with no choice but to pack bags again and move here instead. Here's the permanent address, promise! Enough talk, let the food trippin' begin! {Know More About Me}
