Dear Readers,

Welcome to yet another enchanting issue of Better kitchens, the very first issue of 2023.

The issue is a bespoke chain where every loop with its intricate pattern is connected to the other creating the final product. The first motif focuses on the Better Kitchen Culinary Challenge, Season 4 Grand Finale held in mid February, 2023 at Sheila Raheja Institute of Hotel Management. However, the feat wasn’t achieved overnight and it took unceasing determination and zeal to reach this apex.

It was after journeying in 14 cities that Better Kitchens finally went on to launch the magnanimous event in Mumbai where the winners of all 14 cities were invited for the finale along with a couple of wild card entries. The participants were encouraged to use millet in any one of the recipes that they planned to rustle up. Thereafter it was a complete treat to watch the participants’ flow of creativity into their preparations. The outcome was made even more conspicuous on account of 2023 being declared as the International Year Millets by United Nations at the behest of the Indian government to create awareness and increase production as well as the consumption of the grain.

The event comprised four intense levels of competition to evaluate the culinary and presentation skills of the respective participants wherein the jury consisted of the who’s who of the culinary industry.

The winner of the grand finale was awarded a scholarship of USD 5750—under Chef Scholarship’s Exchange Visitor Program (US J-1).

The edition also sheds light on how a stream of content was introduced to them in the course of four workshops in order to equip the finale participants with the astute knowledge of the sundry topics relevant to strategies and the principles of the upcoming industry besides gearing them up for an illustrious future in the industry, Food Business Entrepreneurship, Food Media and Styling, Molecular Mixology, The Bar School, and Interactions with HR Manager were some of the topics touched upon by the moguls of the industry.

Flip through the pages to read the initiative taken by Better Kitchen by signing an agreement with IHM-Lucknow to start an Incubation Centre. Other than that, the magazine covers the latest news on the hospitality trade besides an article on Mexican cuisines by Retd Secretary Ministry of Information & Broadcasting, Gol that completely graces the leaves of the issue. Also, an article on Uttar Pradesh Awadhi cuisine is included to take the local gastronomy far and wide. Furthermore, Amul, Nandini & Milma controversy are a few other interesting reads that promise to keep you hooked on the issue.

We hope that you enjoy reading the issue to the hilt. Suggestions and ideas to spruce up the magazine are always welcome!

Happy reading.
