As the country’s pioneer institution that takes great pride in uplifting Filipino culinary heritage to the world, the Center for Culinary Arts (CCA Manila) has been proudly leading Philippine cuisine’s remarkable journey towards international recognition for almost two decades.
Taking every decisive step in bringing home-grown flavors to their rightful place among the world’s best, CCA Manila synergizes leadership, passion and innovation in keeping this gastronomic legacy alive and strategically positioned in the future.
Apart from putting Filipino heritage food in the global limelight, CCA Manila recently celebrated the triumphs of Filipino talents in the HOFEX-Hong Kong International Culinary Classic (HKICC) 2019, where three of its chefs — chefs Kerwin Funtanilla, Krystle San Juan and Miguel Antonio Lorino won in various categories.
Chef Miguel garnered a silver medal in the Sustainable Seafood Seabass category and a bronze medal in the Beef Hanging Tender category. Chef Kerwin won a bronze medal, also in the Beef Hanging Tender category while chef Krystle also won a bronze medal, this time in the Porkloin category.
“We are proud to carry the flag and flame on for Philippine cuisine. These contributions and achievements positions CCA Manila at the top of the professional culinary field,” said Dr. Veritas Luna, CCA Manila chancellor.
