Alain Ducasse Education, Enderun Colleges and Alain Ducasse Institute Philippines hosted a charity dinner and auction to benefit the culinary center of Tuloy Foundation last Wednesday, April 20th. The “Chef’s Table” was held at the atrium of Enderun Colleges with the presence of over 150 guests.
Guests were able to experience a 4-course dinner, led by Chef Marc Chalopin, executive chef of Ducasse Institute Philippines, with some of the former Tuloy students as part of the team. Royale of Foie Gras, Creamy Mushroom Velouté and Parmesan Crumble for amuse-bouche;
Poached Salmon with Fresh Herb Sauce for appetizer; Red Wine Braised Beef Short Ribs, Tomato Fondue, Olive and Anchonvy Sauce, and Summer Vegetables for the main course; and Chocolate Savarin for dessert, were the dishes served during the dinner.
None of this would have been possible without our generous ingredient sponsors— ESV International, EspaFil, Mida Food, Aclan General Merchandise, and Rougie.
Aside from the charity dinner, an auction was held with prizes from our Hotel and Restaurant sponsors—Midas Hotel, Misibis Bay, Hijo Estates Resorts, Privato Hotel, Green Sun Hotel, Makati Shangri-La, Marco Polo Hotel, El Carmen De Montesion, Prego Ristorante, and Acacia Hotel.
Youth with a Future was inspired by the “Women with a Future” initiative led by Alain Ducasse Enterprise wherein underprivileged women from Paris are selected to train for a year in a special culinary program. The program includes an apprenticeship in Alain Ducasse’s restaurants. Similarly, Youth with a Future aims to support and provide educational scholarships to a group of culinary students of Tuloy Foundation. Tuloy is a non-government and non-profit organization that provides residential care and comprehensive educational programs for street children in order to reintegrate them into mainstream society.
Ducasse Institute Philippines will enhance the current curriculum of Tuloy Foundation’s culinary center by patterning it after the existing programs offered in Enderun’s campus. Following an 8-month program in Tuloy’s campus, the students will be exposed to further training at Ducasse Institute Philippines for three months. These beneficiaries will complete their program with internship placements that will last from three to five months in one of Enderun’s 250 industry partners. Some of Enderun’s industry partners have already committed to providing internship opportunities to these former street children.
