(Video Link: Alain Ducasse in Manila)
Alain Ducasse, one of the world’s most celebrated modern French chefs and founder of Alain Ducasse Formation (Enderun’s academic partner for Culinary Arts), is in Manila for a 2-day visit. He is joined by Chef See Cheong Yan (Enderun’s corporate culinary head) and Thomas Nommer (ADF’s international development manager) at the press conference.
It was an honor to be in his presence. He preferred to speak in French with a translator. His philosophy is very simple: cuisine is 60% carefully selected ingredients and 40% mastery of French culinary techniques. He encourages Filipino Cuisine to be unique, to use our natural ingredients and to NOT be influenced by other cuisines. (I totally agree!)
Alain Ducasse had a fun time answering questions from the press...
