Students of Tuloy sa Don Bosco Culinary Arts School, popularly known to schoolmates as the Tuloy chefs, participated in the Chefs on Parade 2011: Ultimate Asian Showdown at the SMX Convention Center in Pasay City from February 10-12, 2011. Six culinary students joined two team competitions: Creative Cake Decorating On the Spot on February 11 where they won a silver and Market Basket Filipino on February 12 where they received a diploma for placing fifth among twelve finalists. Prior to its final showdown on February 12, the Market Basket competition had an elimination round at the Culinary Institute of Aristocrat in Manila last January 24. The rest of the Tuloy chefs manned the different cooking demo booths and workshops during this three-day event.
Tuloy sa Don Bosco School opened a Culinary Arts course last June, 2010 with 24 students under chef consultant, Jean Pierre Migné, a few months after the inauguration of the Culinary Arts Center (CAC) in March, 2010.
Chefs on Parade (COP) is known to be the longest-running culinary competition in the country. Its objective is to showcase and recognize the creative talents and skills of both students and professionals as chefs. But COP is not only about competitions. Through its different demos, workshops, and booths, every visitor gets a chance to enjoy good food, learn new recipes, and know the latest products and services in the hotel and restaurant industry.
This year’s COP had Tuloy Foundation, Inc. as its beneficiary.
In COP 2011, the Tuloy chefs had a taste of how it feels to be in a competition…and to win.
