From October 6 to 8, chefs, bakers, students, suppliers, and other food enthusiasts converged at the Convention Center at the fourth floor of the NCCC Mall of Davao City. The occasion? The much-anticipated annual Mindanao Culinary Festival (MCF). It was a celebration of Pinoy culture and indigenous materials as expressed through beautiful culinary creations.

This year’s MCF was a pleasant assault to the senses. The sight of wonderfully created table settings, floral arrangement, centerpieces, cakes, appetizers, desserts, main courses, and pastries provided a cornucopia of colors, smells, and flavors that was entertaining and very much pleasing. Competitions among HRM students, and among professionals also gave much excitement and anticipation to those in attendance.

Enjoy the photos of these masterful creations from both amateurs and professionals (I wasn’t able to tell the difference though)…
