Just a few days back, Bollywood couple Richa Chadda and Ali Fazal had hosted a lavish wedding reception which was attended by the likes of Hrithik Roshan, Taapsee Pannu, Manoj Bajpayee and many others. The wedding reception and the food arrangements were designed keeping in mind the fact that the couple wanted an eco-friendly wedding celebration with minimum damage to the environment. The eclectic spread was carefully curated keeping in mind the likes and dislikes of the bride and the groom and also the profile of the people attending the event.
The menu of the reception had something to tickle every taste bud, be it Indian or international cuisine. From ‘Agra ki Chaat’, ‘Gourmet Kulchas’, ‘South India Korma’ ‘Burrito Bowls’, there were also the customized pizzas to Thai, Italian, and street food from Hongkong. Speaking exclusively to Mid-Day Online, Sanjay Vazirani (CEO- Foodlink, shared “I am glad to see the growing environmental consciousness of couples & families to opt for green weddings. Celebrities enjoy a lot of influence which naturally comes with social responsibility and I applaud Richa & Ali for the thought of having an environmentally friendly wedding celebration. It’s been a growing trend and at Foodlink we ensure that the smallest of the things was planned in a sustainable manner with minimal wastage. We used especially designed plates and bowls to serve food in mono portions. These are beautifully plated, thus are fancy as well as prevent food wastage. To refrain from using plastic bottles, the water was provided in fruit-infused glass canisters with lids across the venue. All food supplied to the support personnel, crew, and media was served in recyclable materials. The menu was curated keeping in mind wholesomeness & nutrition. We mostly had dishes that were baked, steamed, stir-fried or mildly spiced. The highlight was kulfi laced with Richa’s favourite Baileys Irish Cream, that was mixed into the unique home-made Kulfi.” With minimalistic and tasteful décor, the whole place had a very warm feeling. The occasion was heartfelt, the decor was minimal and the expectations were met.
The newly wedded couple, Richa & Ali Fazal quoted, "We are so happy that we had Sanjay Vazirani’s team to curate the F&B experience at our Mumbai reception. The team beautifully translated our thoughts on having an environmentally friendly, plastic-free, sustainable wedding. The arrangements were excellent and very smart measures were taken to ensure minimal food wastage without impacting the experience quotient." And being a Delhiite, Richa was keen on serving some of her favourite Delhi chaats to all the guests. That’s when Sanjay Vazirani’s team came up with some amazing innovations which was enjoyed by all.
