Dear Readers,

A warm welcome to the latest edition of Better Kitchen.

You can never go wrong with your culinary instincts. Amazing words and so true! After having associated with the hospitality industry for years, I can vouch for the connection between the sensory impulses and the final product carved with the collective elements of vision, the struggle to give it a reality, and the concluding aftermath-super satiating and close-to-heart. Is this what they call the great effort?

Whatever the terminology, the emotion involved here is unparalleled. Better Kitchens recorded the same fervor, the excitement, the racing of anticipated moments in the Culinary Challenge-Season 3 organized in ten cities. Needless to add, the response to the event was stupendous which saw enviable participation by colleges and students across the concerned cities. It may be safe to say that culinary Season 3 created history in terms of participation of the entities.

The idea was to promote Indian culinary arts including the food in order to prepare the students for the future. With a view to encourage the aspiring culinary fraternity, the national winner was awarded a scholarship worth of USD 5750/-under Chef Scholarship's Exchange Visitor Program (USA J1). That said Better Kitchen's journey towards new realizations refuses to abate.

In other words, we intend to make it bigger than ever and consequently have planned to hold season 4 of the event in 15 cities which speaks for itself.

The current issue covers the interview of Chef Jeevan Singh where he speaks candidly about his culinary journey and shares his experiences on the way. Other than that the issue includes the regular features like news, a homemaker interview, profile, and the usual.

I pen up with the hope that you enjoy this voyage with us and share your valuable feedback at the end of the journey.

Happy reading.
