LCC students Christian Panganiban and Jonathan Ching worked in the Chef Mavro kitchen with Chef du Cuisine Kevin Chong and his team. They learned first-hand from Chef Mavro and Sommelier Todd Ashline wine pairings and five diamond service.
The students and instructor Don Maruyama were treated to the 13 course Chef Mavro menu as a part of the experience. Here is what Christian had to say about his experience:
“The finale of dining in your AAA five diamond restaurant was so outstanding that what I could put in words does not justify the way I truly felt. The service and timing was impeccable and the food was excellent. Also, this was the first time I dined with wine tasting. I was utterly blown away by how properly paired wine truly does enhance a dish. I loved the way hints of various flavors in the wines took the total taste of the food to a whole other level. I told Chef Don that when I cook I wish that everyone that eats my food can feel the way I felt during those moments. It was impressively awesome. I will always remember that meal.” Christian Panganiban
