India’s leading premium food and lifestyle channel, Living Foodz hosted Food Fiesta, a culinary extravaganza on Saturday, June 24, at Chitkara International School. The event gave the people of Chandigarh a chance to engage with Celebrity Chefs RakheeVaswani and Ajay Chopra along with the exciting experience of an exclusive masterclass where they curated delectable delicacies!
“North Indian cuisine has a fascinating history and is influenced by several global cuisines, old traditions and travel. All these diverse traditions have been preserved over the centuries. Chandigarh is a foodie’s delight offering a wide variety of delicacies cooked with the traditional touch of Punjabi tadka such as Choley– Bhature, makkee-di-roti, lassi, sarsondasaag, parathas, butter chicken etc. The city’s passion for food reflected strongly among the contestants who cooked up a storm at the event. It was heartening to such a wonderful participation and I look forward to visiting the city soon” said Chef RakheeVaswani.
