With 3,000 sq ft of the World Trade Centre, the show packs food stalls with a variety of offerings including products from global cuisines to new items in the market to cater to every taste, literally. “One of the USPs of the show is that people have a chance to interact, taste and discuss the food and products with the owners of these businesses,” Contractor adds. A few years ago, the food event curated a space for home chefs, a growing and popular market.
This will be the third edition of the show’s Home Chef Studio, on day two where home chefs will participate in cook-offs, be mentored by industry stalwarts and be judged by celebrity chefs. Don’t miss out on the live cooking demonstrations by renowned names in the F&B industry including chef Meghna Kadam, chef Nooror Somany, chef Mayukh Mazumdar among others that have been slotted across days one and three. Cap the day with music by Indira Naik on day two and 2 Girlz And A Guitar on day three.
