Limketkai Luxe Hotel’s Chef de Cuisine bags award at Chefmanship Academy


Unilever Food Solutions (UFS) held its globally successful Chefmanship Academy here in the City of Golden Friendship last July 21, 2016 with the goal of spreading the mark of true chefmanship.

During the past years, the Philippine food industry has shown remarkable growth which is an appropriate time for UFS to support the various chefs all over the country who are being challenged by the increased competition in the market.

The Chefmanship Academy was first started last 2009 by UFS Germany to help restaurateurs and chefs to improve their businesses through a series of workshops and seminars. The training modules made for the workshop focused on Menu Planning, Counting Costs, Food Plating and Presentation, and Banqueting led by Executive Chef Joanne Limoanco-Gendrano, her Sous-Chef Carlos Aluning and their team. Through the session, the chefs shared important food trends, insights and learnings about running a food business.


For the last part of the workshop, there was a cooking competition called Elite Chef Challenge wherein chefs from different restaurants and hotels within the province were tasked to prepare their best noodle-based dish using the ingredients provided by UFS in a span of 45 minutes. From the 15 chefs who joined, the champion of the said competition was Chef Benjie Gaviola from Limketkai Luxe Hotel. He prepared a delicious Thai-style seafood noodle soup that the judges loved. According to them, they chose his dish because it was “very well thought out and well prepared”.


The dish is called, Glass Noodles Seafood with Tofu in Coconut Milk Kaffir Lime Soup. The ingredients of which are the following: Glass Noodles (Sotanghon), Shrimp, Fish Cake, Kani Stick, Tofu, Coconut Milk, Kaffir Lime Leaves, Lemon Grass, Knorr Napoli, Knorr Shrimp Powder, Knorr Chicken Broth, Knorr Lime Powder, Fish Sauce, Fresh Shitake Mushroom, Cherry Tomato, Fried Shallots, Ginger, White Onion, Garlic and Chili.

LimketkaiLuxe’s General Manager Jerome F. De La Fuente, for his part commends Chef Benjie’s effort in creating dishes that do not just excites the palates but a dish that is poured with hardwork.

Chef Benjie’s Glass Noodles Seafood with Tofu in Coconut Milk Kaffier Lime Soup will also be a featured dish at Kave Restaurant.
