Chef Jessie Sincioco would prepare a four-course Filipino-Asian meal for the 1,300 guests of the special gala dinner for the 50th anniversary celebration of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (Asean) that would be held at the SMX Convention Center in the Mall of Arena Complex on November 12.

Sincioco, who also prepared meals for Pope Francis during his visit to the Philippines in 2015, was selected to make the plated dinner for the guests, which includes world leaders, heads of state, diplomats, government officials and other dignitaries here and abroad.

Sincioco, a renowned chef, owns three restaurants in Metro Manila – the Top of the Citi by Chef Jessie, Chef Jessie Rockwell Club, and the Chef Jessie Grill at the Grove by Rockwell.

Aside from the sumptuous dinner, gala dinner guests would be delighted with an orchestra, a marching band, a rock band and soloists to welcome them.

The classic song “Manila” is anticipated to set the mood for the guests, who would also be entertained with ballet, folk, ballroom, tap, and contemporary dance performances by top local talents. /kga
