When talking about the culinary scene, we often think about its grandeur. But truth be told, there is so much more than just the glitz and the glamour. Masflex KitchenPro knows this full well. And so, for their 5th anniversary celebration, which officially kicked off last February 28 in Quezon Province, they had their sights set on giving back to the community.
Led by Kitchenpro brand ambassador, Gene Gonzalez, and Vice President Leni Robredo, various cookware and kitchenware products were donated to students taking up the culinary track at Bagupaye and Pakiing Senior High School in Mulanay, Quezon Province. This is in line with the brand’s partnership with the Office of the Vice President’s ANGAT BUHAY – a program geared towards raising the quality of life of every Filipino family.
Among the activities that took place was the Knife Skills demonstration conducted by Chef Gene, in which students were taught lessons in the proper honing process, fish and chicken fabrications, and different vegetable cutting techniques. “I’ve always taught of giving public school students the proper education that will help them sustain and create more jobs and livelihood. We allotted a portion of the sales of KitchenPro products basically to culinary education, livelihood programs and scholarships,” Chef Gene notes.
Masflex KitchenPro also awarded Culinary Scholarships to the top four students in these public high schools currently taking up Cookery & Bakery, Bread & Pastry, and Food & Beverage tracks. Along with this prestigious recognition, they will be studying the International Culinary Entry-Level Workshop in the Center for Asian Culinary Studies (CACS), a school owned by Chef Gene himself in San Juan.
The funding of the proceeds from the sales of Masflex KitchenPro products will go to culinary scholarships and culinary livelihood programs as part of its Culinary Social Responsibility efforts.
