First Gourmet Academy Cooks Dinner for the Philippine Government

March 19, 2014

Last February, First Gourmet Academy and our student-run restaurant Fika reached another milestone. We were asked to do a function outside of the school facilities for the first time. Up to this day, Capitol Hills Golf Club has been using the services of First Gourmet Academy and Fika in order to provide food and beverage to its golf club members. Whenever Capitol Hills Golf Club is arranging a tournament, First Gourmet Academy provides the food and beverages to the players. However, this was the first time that we arranged a function outside the facilities of Capitol GreenStreet. To make things even more interesting, this was also co-arranged with our Greek restaurant Kos Greek Ouzeri located in UP Town Center.

Our faculty and students with the 15th President of the Republic of the Philippines, Benigno Simeon Aquino III.

Adding to our students’ excitement, the guests for this special event were cabinet members of the Philippine government and President Noynoy Aquino. All in all, almost 80 people attended this function.

We received a lot of praise for the food and the arrangement of this function and we are looking forward to developing our function and catering services more these coming months.
