GCC culinary students teach counterparts from Japan how to cook Chamorro-style!

by .

GCC Culinary Arts students became the teachers this week as they showed 32 culinary students from TBC Gakuin (Academy) in Japan how to cook “Chamorro-style.” TBC Gakuin is a technical college. TBC chefs worked with Holiday Tours Micronesia to visit GCC and gain some international cuisine experience, according to TBC Chef Minoru Okamoto.

GCC Chefs Paul Kerner and Bertrand Haurillon and their culinary students put together a traditional Chamorro menu that included red rice, barbecued chicken and short ribs, shrimp kelaguen, shrimp patties, salad, latiya, coconut candy, and because they are amazingly creative – papaya break pudding!
