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. This platform brings together Chefs, Food bloggers, Culinary Experts, and brands in the food space.

Dear Readers,

Greetings.

We Indians are always ready to express our feeling of love. We demonstrate our feelings through affectionate greetings, warm hugs, simple but touching words of appreciation and above all making and serving delicious meals, snacks, sweets keeping in the mind the taste of the persons for whom the feast is prepared. Hospitality for India and Indians is nothing but an outlet for saying “I love you” or “We love you” with a smile.

Our cover story in this issue appropriately revolves round an icon of the hospitality industry Padam Shri chef Sanjeev Kapoor - who loves his profession and has earned his legendary status not just by his expertise, vast knowledge and varied experience in the industry but equally by the genuine love and cheerfulness he radiates when he interacts with his huge following of food lovers who watch his television shows and read his books. No wonder he says – “My favourite ingredient in my cooking is a Smile”. How many chefs can say this as spontaneously as he does?

The issue is also rich with the revelations coming from chef Ravinder Singh Panwar who has has had a range of experiences. We also have chef Gaurav Chawla who has good advice to give to budding chefs. And don't miss the wealth of knowledge imparted by B.P. Sahani, Principal - Sheila Raheja Institute of Hotel Management, the dream institute for students of hotel management.

That's not all. There are special informative articles packed into this issue which I hope will satisfy readers and provide the impetus for a career in the food industry and the hospitality industry.

Now read on with a SMILE as recommended by Chef Sanjeev Kapoor.

Until we meet again with our next issue, happy reading.
