Diamond Hotel Philippines recently held an exclusive lunch highlighting top Texas chef Grant Gordon at the Pisces Culinary Studio in partnership with the Public Affairs section and the Foreign Agricultural Service offices of the U.S. Embassy, USDA, Beringer Wines and Happy Living Wines.  The event is part of the Culinary Diplomacy program of the American Embassy and Chef Gordon’s Manila visit showcased American cuisines through recipes featuring U.S. ingredients and food products.
A live cooking demonstration was held by Chef Gordon at the hotel’s culinary studio – a modern day show kitchen furnished with full-capacity cooking facilities. Guests such as U.S. Ambassador Philip Goldberg, U.S. Embassy officers, members of the press, and top executives of the hotel were given a taste of Chef Gordon’s delightful 4-course set menu accompanied by fine wines from Happy Living Wines.  
Chef Gordon became the famous executive chef of the iconic Tony’s restaurant in Houston Texas at a very young age of 24, which earned him a spot on Forbes‘ 30 under 30 listing.  He graduated from the Culinary Institute of America in New York and is a James Beard Award nominee for the “Rising Star Chef of the Year.” Gordon’s menu combines the classic and the modern flavors that brought fame to Tony’s.
