Day 1 of the Certificate Program on Basic Cooking and Baking Skills at the Center for Asian Culinary Arts (CACS) Davao was a frantic but enjoyable one. It started with the distribution of uniforms, kits (with very sharp knives), and manuals. We then met with Chef Agnes Borromeo, a graduate of CACS, who briefed us on the basic rules, things to remember, and such stuff. We were asked to introduce ourselves. Surprised to know that some of my classmates travel from other cities and provinces just to take the class. The more shocking thing was that we didn’t have any lunch breaks. BOO! But since it was our first day, and we weren’t warned, they gave us an hour.

Chef Agnes taught us the basic terms and things to remember when baking, and she demonstrated peeling and cutting fruits, and how to prepare and cook pancakes and crepes. YUM!
