The weekend promises to be an exhilarating experience as they take fans in Bangalore on an exciting and inspiring culinary journey”.
Bangalore’s favourite Australian Chef -George Calombaris said “I am very excited to be back in India. I love the food here and can’t wait to explore new flavours and cuisine, especially my favourite dish- Jalebis / Vadas. During my last visit, I was thoroughly impressed and excited by the originality of the food and can’t wait to share my experience with foodies in India”.
Gary Mehigan added “The diversity of India’s food palate is absolutely fascinating. I am looking forward to cooking for our patrons in India and also gorging on some flavor-some dishes. Indians are exposed to so many flavours of cooking; I will consider my job done if I see smiles across faces of guests at the World on a Plate food festival”.
Matt Preston known for his love of Indian cuisine said “I love a variety of textures and flavours. I am a firm believer that amazing recipes and culinary techniques are held as much by home cooks as great chefs in restaurants. Inspired by the Indian home-style technique, I will be cooking Coorgi style chicken from a small yet significant part closer to Bangalore and I can’t wait to hear the comments and feedback that I can take home with me.”
