Quick Course by PACE Manila

Reaching our six years operation, team PACE have always adhered to the values, vision and mission that our organization have set since we have started. For the coming years, we would like to extend our vision and mission to aspiring individuals that would like to learn the basics of culinary with the help of our reputable Chef instructors.

With that team PACE have created a mobile short course that would cater our aspiring individuals conveniently located within our mall partners. In line with this we have been in running numerous projects year by year with various malls and this year we would like to upgrade our traditional cooking demo into a more interactive and exciting cooking activity.

Quick Course is PACE’s mobile culinary program designed to be conducted in partnership with malls surrounding the school.

Top 10 Dishes

The TOP 10 Dishes that The Philippines Should be Known For


“Top Ten Dishes That the Philippines Should Be Known For” is an advocacy project initiated by PACE.

The goal of this project is to promote appreciation and sense of pride for authentic Filipino cuisine. As a nation of 7,107 islands and more than 170 languages, we are known as a melting pot of cultures as an effect of centuries of colonization. The influence of the Europeans, Americans and Asians who have set foot in our country for centuries have left an imprint in our culture and our food.

While our neighboring countries like Thailand, Singapore and Vietnam has more distinct dishes than us, PACE believes that Filipinos deserve a cuisine of our own. It is a fact that Filipinos love to eat and explore new cuisines but we owe it to our culture to take pride and patronize our own dishes. PACE as an educational institution would like to focus on a massive information campaign which seeks to find out the top 10 dishes that Filipinos should be known for. This should set a springboard for PACE to launch these list and educate Filipinos by tracing the roots of the dishes they voted for and provide the public an authentic dining experience featuring the winning 10 Filipino dishes.

We at PACE would like to keep our heritage and our local recipes by sharing to the public our own cuisine. We believe that through this campaign, we can bring back more interest and support for our native dishes, prepared in its original form as our legacy to the current generation and the next.

Here’s PACE Chef Monicca and Chef April giving the Umagang Kay Ganda viewers a demo of one of our Filipino Dish Ginataang Langka with Inihaw na Liempo. Watch the behind the scenes:

and we would like to thank the UKG Host for sharing us their favorite Filipino Dish:

Help us gather the best dishes Philippines should be known for! What is YOUR FAVORITE Filipino Dish?
