Saveurs d 'Or by Chef Kim Solejon

A few weeks ago, we were invited to dine at Imperial Palace Suites to celebrate the recent win of Chef Kimberly Jane Solejon at the 2016 Philippine Culinary Cup.

Saveurs d 'Or
The Philippine Culinary Cup was held last August 3 to 6, 2016, at the SMX Convention Center. "Now on its 7th year, the PCC takes on an even bigger role in providing the Filipino chefs an internationally-recognized platform to hone their skills and showcase their talents in the culinary field. A collaboration of the LTB Chefs Association Philippines, the Pastry Alliance of the Philippines and PEPGroup, Inc., it is a successful partnership that has clearly established the new standards in Philippine culinary competitions."

The Philippine Culinary Cup is the most prestigious culinary competition in the Philippines, so it's a huge deal that Solejon bagged the award for Best Chef as well as six other medals - three gold, two silver, and one bronze. We had the privilege of trying her award-winning dishes through a seven-course degustation meal, which will soon be offered at Imperial Palace Suites in Quezon City.
