Hyatt Culinary Challenge, Pune
It was my first time to witness the Culinary Challenge at Hyatt Pune. The event was organised so well along with some peppy games for the guests as well. A lavish dinner buffet was served to all the guest. Here is some brief about the event.
October 27 2018, Pune: To emphasize Hyatt’s focus on its rich culinary heritage, Hyatt Hotels in India hosted the fifth season of ‘Hyatt Culinary Challenge-people cooking for people’ during the last weekend of October across 14 cities.
Hyatt Culinary Challenge was conceptualized as a unique event that will bring together individuals from the corporate realm on a common platform where they could showcase their culinary expertise and passion for food in an interactive culinary event. Each participant was paired with a child participant from partner NGOs to create a participant choice recipe to be adjudged by a panel of distinguished judges from the culinary sphere.
Speaking on the occasion, Harleen Mehta, VP, Sales Operations, Hyatt India said, “Hyatt hotels around the world are recognized for their innovation, creativity and strong focus on Food and Beverage. The objective behind running the Hyatt Culinary Challenge was to give a wider audience across India the opportunity to engage with Hyatt as a brand by participating in ‘people cooking for people’. The overwhelming response that we have witnessed across the cities, over the past years, has been truly encouraging and we look forward to another wonderful edition.”
The preliminary Runners up and winners at each city were awarded a stay at various Hyatt Hotels across India and the winner has been invited to participate in the Grand Finale at Hyderabad in December 2018. The winner from the finale will win a family holiday at one of the exotic international destinations of Hyatt.
At Hyatt Pune, Kalyani Nagar, the participants created a myriad of family style recipes ranging from Slow Roasted Tomato & Watercress Salad with Vegan Paella Valencia by Mr. Shrikant Chakravarty from Bekaert; Jamaican Jerk Grill Cottage Cheese Steak by Mr. Mehul Mehta from Infosys and the wonderful Zingalala Crepe….A prawns recipe by Ms. Priya Wagholikar from HDFC. It was truly an indulgent experience and Mr. Tarun Sharma – CEO, BMC Software, who prepared Bharwaan Tamatar was adjudged winner and will represent Pune in the finale.
About the Buffet: No doubt about the Hyatt’s Culinary Skills!! The food preparation was really top notch and of course there was free flowing liquor and cocktails from the house of Ketel One Vodka
