Over 50 guests from the business, media and Swiss community in Manila were treated to an unforgettable luncheon at the hotel on Tuesday, 24 January 2017. The guests were welcomed by Marco Polo Ortigas Manila General Manager Frank Reichenbach, who is also a Panel of Expert in the Swiss Education Group, the organization responsible for the event. He was then followed by a speech by guest of honor and Her Excellency, Ambassador Andrea Reichlin, talking about the partnership of Switzerland and the Philippines. Afterwards, Swiss Education Group Head of Recruitment Hervé Findeisen gave a brief background and overview of the Swiss hospitality education.

 

The lunch event also provided an opportunity to introduce The Mosimann Collection: A Culinary Heritage – his extensive personal collection of historical culinary books, pictures, medals, original recipes and an elaborate menu collection from around the world. Hosted at César Ritz Colleges Switzerland in Le Bouveret, the collection opened to the public and Swiss Education Group students in June 2016.

 

The culinary icon donned his chef’s jacket and tantalised the taste buds of his guests with an exquisite 4-course wine pairing menu, featuring his signature style which he calls “cuisine naturelle,” cooking each dish lightly, and concentrating on the flavours of each ingredient. The lunch started with Marinated Salmon with Dorset Crab, Spring Onion, Lemon Dressing and also included his famed Risotto ai Funghi – a dish the late Princess Diana named her personal favourite.
