25 June 2018 Vikhroli Cucina to host The Culinary Chroniclers Conclave

Godrej Group’s flagship property - Vikhroli Cucina to host the inaugural chapter of The Culinary Chroniclers Conclave on 30 June 2018, between 9:00 am and 7:30 pm, at the Auditorium, Godrej One, Vikhroli, Mumbai. The conclave aims to bridge the many streams dedicated to the art and craft of documenting and chronicling food. The conclave is conceived and designed by Food writer, gastronome and consultant Rushina Munshaw Ghildiyal.

The Conclave, in its first edition, will focus on the streams of art, literature, photography and media production. It will include a spectrum of offerings such as keynotes, discussions, lectures and masterclasses by well-known experts in these fields. Distinguished peers such as Ankiet Gulabani, Antoine Lewis, Vikram Doctor, Marryam H Reshii, Dr. Mohsina Mukadam, Ruchi Shrivastava, Saee Koranne-Khandekar, Saba Gaziyani, Sourish Bhattacharya, Chef Varun Inamdar, and Vir Sanghvi will share their perspectives on the past, present and future of chronicling food. The Conclave will also host unique exhibits and installations, including a Chocolate installation by Zeba Kohli to serve as creative inspirations.

Speaking about the conclave Rushina said “Food has always played an important role in all our lives. And there have always been people, who have taken it upon themselves to record the diverse facets of food consumption, using whatever mediums are available to them at the time. Their chronicles about what their people eat, when they eat, how they eat, and where they eat, become important windows to understanding their cultures, and sometimes through that, to our very own. I conceived the Culinary Chroniclers Conclave as a common platform for all our modern chroniclers from various disciplines to connect with one another, share divergent perspectives and hopefully weave a wonderful new narrative around food. Personally, I can’t wait to see them all of them under one roof.”

Delighted to host this event, Sujit Patil, Vice President and Head – Corporate Brand and Communications, Godrej Group said “Vikhroli Cucina is an initiative by Godrej to create an ecosystem where key influencers in the food space engage with each other, cross-pollinate ideas and discuss trends for the betterment of the industry.

Dear Readers,


May be for the second or third time in the state government has put a restriction on the use of plastic carry bags and some plastic items that are disposed away with the garbage. The reason is strong and indisputable. It is to prevent choking of drains and gutters which get full during the monsoon with the downpour of rain water.

Of late plastic's use in other forms such as container and disposable crockery has raised questions of safety for health. There is no conclusive answer to those questions yet.

Better Kitchen comes out this time in the midst of the plastic controversies with content that throws light on other kitchen and food related issues. The monsoon has arrived here in Maharashtra in full force and with it comes a spurt in catering orders.

In this issue the experts of the catering and kitchen world speak thought provokingly and honestly about their professional journey and give

valuable advice on the spectrum of do's and don'ts that usually confuse an uninitiated cook.

Times have changed surely for the better in the culinary world. There are open kitchens, live kitchens, fancy kitchens and simple Kitchens. In the hotel industry the kitchens have acquired an importance that is baffling. Technological advances have produced marvels that have become a regular feature of every Kitchen in the competitive hospitality industry where highly qualified talented and fastidious chefs lead teams of trained cooks and produce healthy, tasty and variety food.

Our issue has articles, interviews of expert chef who speak on a wide variety of issues.

We also have a vastu expert telling on vastu of kitchen and its benefits.

Enjoy the monsoon and enjoy reading Better Kitchen.
