When you get an invitation to watch a hands-on cooking demo of a 2-Michelin Star Chef, do you pass it up? Of course not! I think it was fate that my schedule was super free that day for I got to witness and even chat with Chef Michel Portos. Held at the Makati Branch of Center for Culinary Arts Manila (CCA Manila), it was indeed the perfect venue for the French Masterchef to showcase his skills and more.

Such astounding achievements that I was starstruck for a moment! During his hands-on demo of the dishes served, he had this seriousness yet fun appeal to him. I wasn’t able to capture the times that he was just happily interacting with the students. It made the regal session somehow light. And yes, he was very approachable. He even did a groufie with everyone! 🙂
