Students from the FEU Institute of Tourism and Hotel Management dominated two categories in the recently held Amity Youth Fest 2021. Amity Youth Fest is an annual event organized by Amity University’s School of Hospitality, one of the top hotel schools in India.

The Hotel and Restaurant Management (HRM) students joined two events. The AmiChef (University Level) is a competition where participants showcase their innovative use of cooking styles, methods, and ingredients, while the Star of the Bar is an online cocktail recipe making competition.

For the AmiChef, HRM junior Frangelico Adam Lopez, who was coached by Chef Racky Masa grabbed the silver medal, while freshman Sophia Bernardo mentored by Chef John Lester Tuason bagged the bronze. Other FEU students who made the final round were Rishven Angel Peralta coached by Chef Aleli Jihan Aseremo, and James Ryan Sibala and Joshua Adrian Esclarino with Chef Richard Tabuena as their adviser.

Meanwhile, it was a near sweep for three HRM seniors in the Star of the Bar competition. Joaquin Lorenzo Bersamin won first place, Jun Deyna Dimaculangan ranked second, and Richard Brylle Quitlong finished fourth. All of them were trained by Dr. Anna Pamela.

This year’s competition was held online last March 11 to 14, 2021.
