Rising Stars creates a unique culinary experience

Posted: Updated:

Up and coming chefs will showcase their skills next month and all for a good cause. PHR Club and the five premier hotels of Ken Corporation will hold its first annual charity PHR dining experience called Rising Stars. The concept of the event is to offer a special dining experience for guests to enjoy a five-course meal with wine pairing prepared by chefs from Ken Corp.

Melanie Mendiola is the executive director of Farm to Table Guam, which was selected as the beneficiary for all proceeds from the event. "This event is something the island hasn't seen before. For one thing, it highlights young chefs, it highlights the rising stars and these are the individuals that are going to be making the largest impact in the culinary scene in the coming years, and so we see the connection being very valuable, relevant and current," she explained.

The Rising Stars event is set for September 2 at the Hyatt Regency Guam. Tickets are $200 each and sold at the Hilton, Hotel Nikko Guam, Hyatt, PIC Guam and Sheraton Laguna Guam Resort.
