Last September 24 – 26, 2008 The Venue along Quirino Boulevard played host to the biggest culinary event in Davao City, the Mindanao Culinary Festival. With the theme “Indigenous Flavors, Global Tastes,” students and professionals from all over the island converged to showcase their best culinary works.
Hundreds of students from over 20 schools from around Mindanao converged to compete and learn from the masters. During the three days of the festival, fourteen certificate courses and seminars were conducted. Alongside these, learning modules, students, trainors, and culinary professionals competed for the coveted prized and bragging rights.
This year’s MCF was spearheaded by the Davao Tourism Association (DATA) under the leadership of Mary Ann Montemayor who served as the event’s managing director. DATA together with local establishments had been successfully staging MCF for 8 eight years now, in a bid to attract tourists and investors with the rich and interesting culinary delights of the region.
