Diamond Hotel Manila has got its luster back with General Manager Vanessa Suatengco now at the helm. The newly renovated main restaurant Corniche has a classier look. Food has more variety and selections with the newly designed interactive stations. They even have lobster on the buffet spread!
This week we took over 200 hundred students to dine and sample their buffet. After their very long lunch they had a Filipino cooking demonstration at the refurbished Constellations kitchen theater at the Sky Lounge. Well respected Filipino master and executive chef Mel Taylo conducted the event. He was assisted by his staff and our alumnus chef Dekker Gokioco. They presented to us their winning entries which were modern interpretations of kare-kare (ox tail peanut stew), chicken binakol (chicken in coconut juice soup) , and biko(sticky rice) with langka (jackfruit).
