LPU Culinary Institute Taking the Lead for 2015 HKICC

Lyceum of the Philippines Culinary Institute Braves the 2015 HKICC with Fresh and Raw Talents
 LPUCI's Curriculum are constantly updated and innovated to match the industry's calling. The institute aims not to equip students with knowledge alone, but the skills and mastery of specialized fields needed by the industry.
Lyceum of the Philippines Culinary Institute (LPUCI) sends off fresh and young talents to compete in one of Asia's toughest culinary competition, the Hong Kong International Culinary Classic. The esteemed culinary battle will be part of the 16th International Exhibition of Food & Drink, Hotel, Restaurant & Foodservice Equipment, and Supplies & Services known as HOFEX 2015. 

This year, LPUCI aims to bring home honor and a sense of pride to a new batch of LPUCI and LPU students. Chef Dan Basilio, the Culinary Director of LPUCI believes that the program they offer at LPUCI can mold students to be capable to challenge other culinary practitioners not only in Asia, but of the world. LPUCI integrate within their programs not only the latest information and techniques but also with state-of-the-art facilities and equipment.




 "Students at LPUCI are able to master the use of equipment used and facilitated worldwide," shared Chef Dan. "We believe by allowing the students to be exposed to these type of kitchen set-up where they can practice their techniques learned through lectures and seminars boosts their self-esteem in the process."





 LPUCI's Ingredients are varied, top-of-the-line and of topmost quality. A chef's supremacy is through their palates. Students of LPUCI are prepared and accustomed to use and be exposed to excellent ingredients which allows them to enjoy and master each taste and texture of each food up to the minute details.



 LPUCI's Chef Instructors belong to a pool of distinguished and highly experienced culinary masters from highly-regarded restaurants, hotels and bakeshops. The instructors primary objective is to impart the knowledge, skills, techniques and ethics of working in one of the most sought-after kitchens of the country

 LPUCI's Management, from its directors to its staff are all food-savvy and passionate about the world of culinary arts. The same attitude is what the institute shares to its students, to make food not only a career, but a lifestyle just like the members of the managements who themselves are practitioners and food-related business owners.


 LPUCI's Facilities include state-of-the-art equipment which are used in top kitchens in the world. The students are able to hone their skills as they master the use of modern facilities. The mere knowledge and familiarization already provide the students with confidence and boost their self-esteem to compete in the international scene.


LPUCI will send Angelique Chua, Emareene Francisco, Ban Vill Villaruel, Janemar Gyle Gicana, Jolina Dela Cruz, and Paul Lyndon Fornoles bannered by Chef Winnie Wong, Chef Kazzie Sy and Chef Clyden San Pedro from the faculty pool to the 2015 HKICC with much confidence and regard. These students, however, do not take the competition very lightly. They had weeks and weeks of preparation and practice being supervised by a pool of LPUCI's well-regarded faculty of chefs. But most importantly, the representatives are given final briefing on how to take on tasks and be able to face even the most difficult challenges they may encounter in Hong Kong.

"We have to note the fact that these students are first-timers when it comes to culinary competitions abroad," Chef Dan admitted. "And their being 'fresh' is what makes them motivated and driven to win." It is in fact a tradition of LPUCI to send raw talents to culinary competitions such as the HKICC. This is to provide opportunities to as many students that show extraordinary talents, skills and performances.

But LPUCI along with Lyceum of the Philippines (LPU) as a team is not a fresh face to enter the competition though. In fact, back in 2013, four of the representatives sent off to compete were able to bring home awards and distinctions. These admired individuals were Bernard Mayo (Bronze; Hot Cooking U25 Apprentices: Beef Short Ribs), Redentor Agustin (Bronze; Display-Finger Food), and Carlo Licher Reyes (Silver; Professional Sous vide Cook - Chicken).


Today's food and hospitality industry has never been tougher. Aside from bachelor degree holders, culinary diploma holders are increasingly growing as the numbers of culinary schools are multiplying not only locally but internationally. Having a degree alone is not enough to compete with the increasing competitors, and most companies today are becoming more meticulous in hiring kitchen extraordinaire. Lyceum of the Philippines Culinary Institute (LPUCI) has been aware of this reality and as one of the leading culinary schools in the country, they are determined to develop internationally-competent chefs through their five pillars. 


With LPUCI's five pillars, hospitality and culinary degree holders do not only get to land a job. They are also being developed to rise up a career ladder from chef to head chef.
