The winners – Chef Anupa Das & Chef Aesha Majithia
Beginning this new week with fun, excitement and lots of cooking what with the Innovation Station (Season 3) Competition in the office! The theme was “International Cuisine” this time where three chef teams compiled some interesting dishes. We had very busy kitchens, with steaming pots and pan, a real battle of the biggies, and one could feel the palpable heat of competition and creation!
As expected, they came out with super amazing recipes on their platters where each one of them cooked a three course menu, consisting of a starter, maincourse and dessert.
