Make Your Culinary Dream a Reality at Global Culinary & Hospitality Academy


It’s been a while.

How are you? Hope you’re all doing okay.

It has been months since I last posted something on the blog. I know lines like “I am busy” was used, most of the time, by people who’ve been M.I.A. Me? Well, let’s just say that I’ve enjoyed the life of being offline. Less drama, more quality time with the people who matter most, my family.

Speaking of family, mine loves to eat. We like to try new dishes or do food trip especially when going out-of-town. When we’re at home, I make sure to serve their favorite viands. The only challenge for me though, is that I am not quite knowledgeable in preparing desserts. I would normally end up buying cakes and ice cream in nearby store. Since my husband and daughter both have sweet tooth, I would really want to know how to make yummy treats from scratch.

Now, can you imagine my excitement when I received an invite to take a short pastry course at Global Culinary and Hospitality Academy? Hihi!

Global Culinary and Hospitality Academy

Founders, Chef Roberto Pengson and Mr. Benjamin Ledesma Jr., opened their first branch in Ortigas last April 2007. Due to demand, the second branch was established in Alabang Zapote last 2008. Today, Global Academy is the only professional culinary school to have 4 branches in Metro Manila (third branch is in Quezon City – 2009 and fourth one is in Makati City – 2010).

Not only that, this institution prides itself to be the first culinary school in the Philippines to receive The World Association of Chefs Societies (WACS) Recognition of Quality Culinary Education (given last 2012).

“Global Academy believes and has proven that professional culinary dreams do come true when dedicated students come in partnership with a committed school” – excerpt www.globalacademyph.com
The Kitchen

One of the things that I like about this school is the spacious, fully-equipped kitchen laboratory. It makes you want to bake more. Not to mention the state-of-the-art facilities. Ugh. Heaven. 
Playing "Chef"

It started with me, being handed with a kit consisting of the following:

* Student Form
* Cap
* Apron
* Brown Envelope (printed recipes inside)

Then our group had a quick briefing with Chef Erika de Leon, Global Academy’s Marketing Chef and Head of Short Course and Lifestyle Unit. 

Chef did a demo on all of the things that we will be doing on our own. She discussed everything that we need to know, from learning how to use the mixer to different tricks on how to bake different goodies. 
Because I was too busy baking (plus the fact that my hands were full of flour. Lol), I was not able to capture all of the highlights of the course, so let me share this cute tray full of ingredients in making lemon squares instead. 
And my Carrot Cake... This is my first! Not perfect but it looked edible to me. As per my family, it tasted great, too! (that's why I love them, my fam. haha).

 Our mini-graduation! Thank you, Global Academy for this wonderful experience.

PS: In order to service more people, Global Academy established 4 branches strategically located on different parts of Metro Manila.
