Business: Ayala North Point: Doing Its Best to Build ‘Homes’
What does Culinary Arts got to do with real property investments?
The Bacolod media last Saturday, July 27, were reminded that the Ayala NorthPoint Estate is the first "fully integrated, master-planned and mixed-use community in Negros, complete with residential, business, recreational, educational and institutional facilities."
Culinary Master, Chef Richard Ynayan conducted practical "pasta" cooking techniques for the Filipino home setting jointly presenting a recipe together with his students enrolled in the International Culinary Arts de La Salle University (ICA).

Thus, it will do its best "to build homes rather than houses", of which the culinary arts or kitchen activities are major components of what it called also as "residential oasis", homes built with wide, wide spaces, 24/7 security and superb property management characteristic of Ayala properties throughout the country.
Slow Food Organization Founder and President Carlo Petrini, in Time Specials (time.com) read, "Even if the world was collapsing around you, you would go home at a set time, sit down at the table and eat a full meal fondly prepared by the women of the house."
Petrini explained the essence of the Slow Food value system, "These values teach us that food is better when it is fresh and seasonal, when it is produced close to home, possibly by people we know, and when it is eaten with the people we love."

One ICA de la Salle student said, "Culinary Arts as a branch of study discipline us to study everything related to food especially cost-efficient methods needed by the Filipino homes. ICA professors taught us the best way to cook under several occasions. We are taught special food for special needs especially for business, parties or in the homes. Special food need not be expensive unless demanded. This includes also the preparation, crafting the food to be an artistic material therefore marketable."
Apparently, the Ayala Land Premier "Taste Life at the Gardens" inspired its marketing force, guests and media to the culinary arts in accomplishing its mission beyond real property investments.
"The Gardens" is the conclusive lot offering themed park within Ayala North Point, uniquely namely, Aroma which is a garden filled with scents of lush flowers and fruit bearing trees; Vista, a jogger’s trail lined with trees and shrubs; Terra where the flow of energy is invigorating and Aria, a calming Zen space.*
