GCC IV will be remembered as the GCC that almost didn’t happen – if not for the tenacity and demonstration of support from the academic community who all worked tirelessly to make GCC IV still possible.
Presented with challenges beyond just the competition, the contestants, coaches and organizers overcame the toughest preparations and the most trying circumstances to make the Grand Culinary Challenge IV (GCC4) happen.
GCC IV will be remembered as the GCC that almost didn’t happen – if not for the tenacity and demonstration of support from the academic community who all worked tirelessly to make GCC IV still possible. From the host school St. Michael College of Laguna (SMCL), the offer of help by FEU Manila, to the countless letters and phone calls from members of the academe assuring full support of the program in the face of an event cancellation, to the handful of volunteers who worked in the sidelines quietly and selflessly. Everyone moved to make GCC 4 happen and it did – despite all odds.
This is the reason why the victory is sweeter… and the awards are made more meaningful.
It is with humility, deep appreciation, and great joy, therefore, that we announce the winners of GCC IV. Congratulations on behalf of the GCC Organizing Team!
