Selfie-ing with THE Alain Ducasse

As a self-proclaimed food-lover, I got so excited to attend a press conference on Ducasse Institute's Philippines launch at Enderun. Chef Alain Ducasse himself was there. It was my first time at Enderun Colleges in McKinley, and I love, love, love it so much. I am so happy that there is such a place in Manila. It was such a breathe of fresh air, an escape from the concrete jungle.

My cousin, who's the sous chef at Brasserie Ci├žou and a die hard fan of Chef Alain Ducasse, accompanied me. We sat on the second row. As the selfie capital of the world (haha), I just had to take a selfie with the chef.

At the launch of Ducasse Institute at Enderun, they introduced the Chef de Partie program. If you're interested, please read on.


Ducasse Institute Philippines at Enderun Colleges launches the first Chef de Partie program in the Philippines, the Diploma in Culinary Arts - Chef de Partie, for culinary graduates and aspiring professional chefs who want to advance in their career and acquire the skills expected of a Chef de Partie at top international establishments. Through comprehensive research across restaurants all over the world, the skill sets gained in this program match the precise needs of employers when hiring a Chef de Partie.

Participants of this program will get to train with world-class chef instructors of Ducasse Institute Philippines and learn the responsibilities of a Chef de Partie - from running one particular area of the professional kitchen at any given time, as well as assisting the sous-chef and head chef. Students will gain an excellent grounding for every specialty in the kitchen, such as cold kitchen preparation and advanced culinary techniques applied to different catering concepts. The curriculum also includes lessons on mise-en-place, health and safety protocols, nutrition fundamentals, team management, and operations management.

This intensive program matches the curriculum taught in Ducasse Education in France. With 75% hands-on and 25% theory classes, the teaching methodology focuses on rigorous hands-on practice in order to optimize skills acquisition. It lasts for six months and is divided into hands-on training and internship in a restaurant. Students have an option to have their internship abroad in one of Enderun’s 250 global industry partners.

Ducasse Education is dedicated to cultivating excellence in the practice of culinary and pastry arts, service, and hospitality around the world through accessible and internationally-oriented educational programs. Ducasse Education’s mission is to educate the next generation of top international culinary professionals with exceptional global standards, rigor, innovation, and creativity to meet industry needs for market-ready competencies.

Ducasse Education is available in the Philippines at Enderun Colleges, the home of the first Ducasse Institute outside of France, and its regional hub in Asia. The combination of Enderun's existing culinary faculty - already celebrated as one of Asia's most distinguished - with the Ducasse Education teaching methodologies promises to set new standards for culinary education in Asia. The collaboration also gives Enderun students the opportunity to earn an international certification from Ducasse Education in France.

The Diploma in Culinary Arts - Chef de Partie starts this June. For inquiries, please call Eveth Ella at 856 5000 local 505 or email enderunextension@enderuncolleges.com. Visit our website www.enderunextension.com to know more about this program.
