The newest dining campaign of Eastwood City, aimed to shine the spotlight on the talented chefs behind its newest restaurants, was formally unveiled during star-studded degustation dinner held recently at the Eastwood Richmonde Hotel.
Opening the glitzy gustatory event hosted by Tim Yap was Megaworld First Vice President and Commercial Division Head Kevin L. Tan.
“Apart from highlighting the talents of our chefs and their masterful creations, Eastwood Food Artistry was also envisioned to inspire up and coming chefs to master their craft and eventually become part of Eastwood City as retail partners,” Tan said during his opening remarks, which was followed by a heartwarming mini-documentary featuring Eastwood City’s most respected and sought-after chefs who also prepared the degustation menu.
Celebrities and media guests were among the firsts to get a taste of the Eastwood Food Artistry Exclusives—masterful food creations handcrafted and intricately prepared by Eastwood City’s topnotch chefs, which will be available exclusively at participating Eastwood City establishments starting August.
Among the celebrities who attended the exclusive event were Liz Uy, Tweetie De Leon, Aubrey Miles, Troy Montero, Phoemela Baranda, Camille Co, Mikhaila Lagdameo-Martinez, Arnold Van Opstal, Carlo Orosa, Luke Jickain and Christian Bautista.
Indulging the guests in the 8-course degustation dinner were Eastwood City’s top chefs including James Torres of Potts Point Café who served Risotto Balls as Hor D’Oeuvers, Hideaki Tohyama and Ben Gon of Sandaime who served the appetizer Volcano Roll, Pat Obia of Eastwood Richmonde Hotel who showcased his Trio of Pinoy Antipasti, Robby Goco of Green Pastures who gave guests a taste of his new creation Mushroom and Kale Paella, Chiloy Santos of Kettle who dished up a delectable serving of Brisket Sisig Taco, Chef Avi Shani who delighted guests with his newest gelato creation Tequila Rose Gelato and Gregory Guy of Cheesecakes by Guy who came out with his three of his signature cheesecakes Sugar-free Queso de Bola, Lemon Cheesecake, and Triple Chocolate.
