ISCAHM Culinary Classes

During my lengthy trip to the Philippines, I actually went to the International School for Culinary Arts and Hotel Management (ISCAHM) for the Culinary Fundamentals course which lasted 12 weeks! It was something I'd look forward to every Saturday morning. Afterwards Daryl and I would often go out to eat, watch a movie, or shop!

Of course there were brilliant chefs to teach us. Each had their own style and we found them quite interesting, better yet, entertaining.


Canadian Chef Sean McSavaney
I've never met a person who loves butter more than Chef Sean. He's claims that sauces consists of 70% butter. Yes, 70%! It's no joke. He's heck funny and often likes to crack jokes.

Swiss Chef Ulrich Williamann
He might be the oldest chef among the 4. He's very much reserved and he likes to prim his mushrooms.

German Chef Gerd Menge
He makes sure that all the culinary rules and guidelines are being followed. He emphasizes so much on having the same size of cuts when we cook. I do however have a hard time listening to him cause of his accent. HAHA

Indian Chef Manoj
Chef Manoj believes that the best way to learn is by cooking something yourself. He breaks us into groups and we're supposed to delegate the tasks and have everything prepped, cooked, and displayed on the table by noon. 

We're a happy bunch.
I swear my pose is really awkward here.

And we try our best to listen.
Or we try to play chef's pet- like ME. 

And sometimes we get caught up taking pictures.

Well, we just really love the camera.
So you see, it's really a ton of fun. If you like cooking, I'd certainly advise you to take up a course or two. It's well worth it!:)
