Taking one’s gastronomic journey into a one-of-a-kind experience, Chefs on Tour by Dusit Davao was a huge success –both in Dusit Thani Lubi Plantation Resort and dusitD2 Davao.

The summer season was celebrated well in the Dusit Davao properties, ensuring its guests that only unique and delightful experiences would take place. Last April 13 and 14, twelve of the country’s best chefs showcased their passion through Chefs on Tour, from an exclusive island paradise to Davao’s ideal choice for urban escape. The event was co-presented by Torre Lorenzo Development Corporation. 

The roster of chefs was from LTB Philippines Chefs Association, an organization of culinary enthusiasts that promote Filipino cuisine and talents all over the world, namely: Chef James Antolin (Ikomai, Tochi desserts), Chef Sau Del Rosario (Sawsaw, Café Fleur), Chef Tom Bascon (M Dining), Chef Buddy Trinidad (Park Avenue Desserts), Chef Josh Boutwood (Helm, The Test Kitchen, Savage, Ember), Chef Gilbert Pangilinan (Kai, Cerveseria, The Blue Room, Manila House), Chef Jackie Ang Po (Fleur de Lys), Chef Carlo Miguel (Cloud Eats), Chef Tatung Sathou (Lore, Tatung’s, Azadore), Chef J Brando Santos and Chef Kenneth Cacho (Unilever Food Solutions Philippines). Lastly, Dusit’s very own executive chef Piya Suthasiri joins the line-up, bringing his vast experience around Asia and his signature approach to innovating Thai dishes.

The two-day event began with sunset cocktails and curated island experiences at Dusit Thani Lubi Plantation Resort. Guests were treated into the perfect ambiance matched with delectable food and entertainment. The second day was held at the Dusit Thani Grand Ballroom, with hundreds of guests coming together for an exceptional night of gastronomic delights. Both hosted by multi-awarded broadcaster Ces Orena-Drilon, Chefs on Tour were attended by government and corporate partners, the consular core, national and local celebrities and media, influencers, and culinary enthusiasts from different parts of the country. 

In his welcome message, General Manager Christoph Kuch says, “Chefs on Tour is a culinary experience like no other, and we are proud that Dusit Davao has made it happen. We are honored to be in the presence of world-renowned Chefs sharing their expertise and passion, which shall all translate on tonight’s menu.”

Torre Lorenzo Development Corporation CEO Tomas Lorenzo delivers his message as well, sharing, “We wanted to create this event because we at Dusit Davao do things out of the box. We do interesting events that would really change the landscape of dining, of entertainment.” 

Chefs on Tour commenced by introduction of the twelve chefs from their respective stations and having them share their dishes for the night. With a wide-ranging and full 12-course menu ready for guests to indulge, it was a celebration and conversation of food, cooking, baking, and inspiration for the craft amongst the chefs in their respective stations. While Dusit brought the chefs in Davao, the chefs brought everyone in the event into a different tour – one that ravels in one’s palate and memories.
