Class is underway at the Teaching Kitchen...
Thank you for making this possible!
At our recent Annual Gala, we celebrated the completion of El Nido's Teaching Kitchen. Please click the picture above to enjoy this Behind the Scenes video, showcasing the newly completed kitchen, culinary academy, and Gala honorees (the Kaplan family, and Eddie Navarrette with FE Design and Consulting).
