For over 20 years, Crescent Moon Cafe has been a top Antipolo destination for food and art, serving favorites such as homemade Suman at Mangga and the popular Alagao Appetizer. This time, the restaurant is opening its doors to young aspiring chefs looking to begin their culinary journey.

This summer, Crescent Moon Cafe, in partnership with WhenInManila.com, brings you Junior Gourmand, a four-day culinary workshop for kids. Classes will run from May 15 to 18. Workshop fee is P3,500, inclusive of all ingredients, use of kitchen equipment, and a personalized apron.

Now in its second year, this iteration of Junior Gourmand will feature Asian cuisine. Participants will learn to assemble sushi, make noodles from scratch, and be exposed to cooking styles, spices, and flavors unique to Asian cooking. The junior chefs will also develop important kitchen skills such as knife handling and food presentation.

The workshop will be taught by Krystle Paz, a chef at Crescent Moon Cafe. Chef Krystle has worked in the kitchens of Mandarin Oriental, Century Park Hotel, and the Raintree Group of Restaurants. She holds a degree in Hotel, Restaurant and Institution Management from the College of St. Benilde, and has taught numerous cooking workshops around Antipolo.
