New menu, partners for Enderun

Posted on May 17, 2012

A well-known culinary arts school in the Metro has rolled out a new menu at its in-house restaurant and announced new partnerships.

Roasted Barramundi

Restaurant 101 at Enderun College recently came out with its new menu. Changed quarterly, the restaurant highlights the produce and fresh items of the specific season, new dishes taught in the school’s classes, or the new cooking techniques learned by the students.

Among the new items of the season are Tanigue tartar with pomelo, cilantro, calamansi dressing and salmon roe; grilled pork chop Cordon Bleu-style with a side of braised cabbage drizzled with charcutière sauce; Escargot risotto (P380), a watercress risotto flavored with garlic, Burgundy snails and Parmesan; and Roasted barramundi (P680), with braised fennel and eggplant, in olive oil and fish broth emulsion.

The school also announced new partnerships, specifically with the Thunderbird School of Global Management and Ducasse Institute.

Enderun is now officially Thunderbird’s first global partner. The school integrates Thunderbird Online’s (TO) executive certificates into its Business Administration and Entrepreneurship programs.

TO is a division of the Thunderbird School of Global Management which provides online courses and executive certificates via distance-online programs. The 60-year-old school is claimed to be the number one school of international business.

The professional development program offered by TO provides participants with a comprehensive education in core global business concepts.

Enderun’s undergraduates will now receive TO executive certificates upon graduation along with their Enderun degrees.

Meanwhile, Enderun along with famed French cookery school Ducasse Education, also recently inaugurated the first Ducasse Institute outside of France.

Culinary programs in the partnership are the result of extensive collaboration between Enderun’s culinary head chef, See Cheong Yan, Ducasse Institute Philippines executive chef Marc Chalopin, and a number of Ducasse Education chefs.

The courses mix theory and hands-on classes and allow Enderun students to take internships at Alain Ducasse restaurants worldwide, which includes the Centre de Formation d’Alain Ducasse in Paris, France.

Enderun Colleges is located at McKinley Hill, Fort Bonifacio, Taguig. For more information, call 856-5000.
