Top culinary talents collaborate at Palawan’s premier eco-resort
Daluyon Beach and Mountain Resort recently leveled up its culinary offering by hosting a gastronomic pop-up feast on June 1 featuring two of the country’s top culinary personalities.
The special event featured a five-course meal prepared by Chef Josh Boutwood, who now heads innovative restaurants such as degustation restaurant Helm and pre-industrial dining spot Savage. He is also the Corporate Executive Chef of The Bistro Group.
The delectable combination of local and international flavors can only be described as “world class.” Each dish is complemented with carefully selected wines by Philippine Sommelier Competition 2018 Champion Eanglebert Guina.
‘Destination Degustacion’ was Daluyon’s way of honoring nature’s bounty through an elegant gastronomic presentation befitting of a world-class resort. “We had the vision of elevating the dining experience here in Puerto Princesa, Palawan using ingredients that are gifts from nature. I believe this is also the first time that two of the biggest names in the Philippine food and beverage scene collaborated for an event here in the province,” said Bruce Tan, Daluyon’s General Manager. “Our guests can look forward to more special culinary events featuring other local talents at Daluyon.”
The event is also in celebration of the restaurant’s new look, which features local and renewable materials abundant in the area such as cogon and salvaged wood. This is in keeping with the resort’s sustainability efforts that has garnered them 3 ASEAN Green Hotel Awards and a Level 4 Anahaw certification, the second-highest level of a new green certification program recognized by the Department of Tourism.
Daluyon is also the official ASEAN tour accommodation and restaurant partner of the Sabang Mangrove Paddle Boat tour, which highlights the importance of conserving the mangrove forest and the wildlife that thrives in it. This earned the Sabang Mangrove Paddle Boat Tour Guide Association an ASEAn Community-Based Award for 2019-2021.
