Ivan Cerdeno Master Class
Enderun Colleges welcomed Chef Ivan last April 4th who is in town to attend Madrid Fusion Manila 2016.

Enderun students had the opportunity to attend this Master Class, but also the chance to work with Chef Ivan in the kitchen to prepare the tapas served during the cocktail.

 

Ivan Cerdeno Master Class
Participants of this culinary demo witnessed Chef Cerdeño preparing traditional Spanish tapas, all with pork as a common ingredient. 

With fine ingredients from INTERPORC, the Interprofessional Agri-food Organization for White Pigs, recognized by the Spanish Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Environment.

In his homeland in Toledo, Spain pork plays an important major role in food.

 

Ivan Cerdeno Master Class
The Chef delighted the attendees with a contrast of traditional cuisine – how his grandmother and mother would cook them – and his modern take on the same three dishes: pork tenderloin with cherry tomatoes and peanuts, ham croquettes, and “Gachas” with ham and chorizo.

Chef Ivan created three recipes using 3 parts of the pork, one of them is ham, an important part of the pork.

He also wanted to shine a light on the parts of the pork that are not so noble and less pricey and also the noble ones such as the pork tenderloin that they've incorporated with fresh herbs you'll find in the Philippines.

 

Pork tenderloin with cherry tomatoes and peanuts recipe :

Master Class

Ivan Cerdeno Master Class
The first recipe used is the pork tenderloin, a noble cut of the pork.

 

Ivan Cerdeno Master Class
They made a marinade with the combination of spices using soy sauce, teriyaki sauce, oyster sauce, curry, and paprika.


The pork tenderloin is marinated for 24 hours.

 

Ivan Cerdeno Master Class
Then combined with fresh herbs, cilantro, basil, coriander and roasted cherry tomatoes. Put together with a sauce made from the water coming from the cherry tomatoes together with the marinade.

  

“Gachas” with ham and chorizo recipe:

Ivan Cerdeno Master Class
The second recipe pays homage to the chef's homeland Toledo, it is a traditional recipe that is pretty much simply found there the gruel.

“This Gachas con Jamon y Chorizo is a dish that is very close to my heart. This dish was used to feed farmers and their children back in the day. This dish is very dear to me because it is a recipe that was taught to me by my grandmother." – said Chef Cerdeño during the Master Class.

 

Ivan Cerdeno Master Class
It is a combination of stir-frying the chorizo, onions, garlic, pancetta (pork belly).

 

Ivan Cerdeno Master Class
They also used green pea floor, that is a typical flour found in Spain. (For the Philippine market milling Chickpea flour can be a substitute)

 

Ivan Cerdeno Master Class
The flour is cooked together with the oil of the pancetta and everything else together.

 

Ivan Cerdeno Master Class
In order to make it a much lighter dish, and make it more modern, they placed the gruel in a cream dispenser, making it more like an airy mousse.

 

Ivan Cerdeno Master Class
To make the pork flavor come out which is the star of the dish, they based the plate with sauteed chorizo with onions.

 

Ivan Cerdeno Master Class
To add another texture to the dish they added a crunchy piece of bread. The crunchy texture reflects how it is typically eaten on the countryside, where you would bring bread and dip it in the bowl.

 

Ham croquettes recipes:

Master Class

Ivan Cerdeno Master Class
The last recipe is the ham croquette, which is a traditional Spanish recipe found mostly everywhere in Spain.

 

Ivan Cerdeno Master Class
They infused the soup base with the ham bones, which is a part of the pig which is mostly not used and thrown away, but this time given importance in the dish.

It is a regular bechamel but with a lot of flour substituted with gelatin sheets instead to make the bechamel a whole lot lighter.

 

Ivan Cerdeno Master Class
The ham is the protagonist of the dish with the infused milk carrying the flavor of the ham bones and with small bits of ham added in the bechamel.

Ham in this dish is exploding with flavor.

 

Ivan Cerdeno Master Class
In order to create the croquettes take 25% of the bechamel roll it into a ball, dip in egg yolk and Japanese bread crumbs and then deep fry.

And because it is fried the gelatin sheet with very high heat melts, and the bechamel inside almost becomes liquid.

 

Ivan Cerdeno Master Class
The croquettes are very smooth on the inside and crunchy on the outside.

 

Ivan Cerdeno Master Class
Not only were the participants able to witness an awarded Chef in his natural element, but also had the opportunity to bring home special recipes.
