Bangalore Witnessed The Chef Post's Cold War - A Dessert & Drink Degustation

Further to the signature launch of The Chef Post portal last September where the city witnessed its top chefs walk the ramp in style, the portal has become a favourite amongst many to stay updated about chefs & everything culinary. On 10th February 2017, The Chef Post hosted their first grand event of the year - Cold War.
The Chef Post's Cold War
Cold War, which was a towering successful event, was a celebration of dessert & drink pairing with the top hotels in the city. This year chefs from 11 luxury hotels of Bengaluru participated in the event held at the JW Marriott Bangalore, and presented their signature dessert that was paired by the erudite winemaker, Dr. Akshay Baboo. He is a winemaker, researcher, rootstock consultant, and beverage consultant. He has vinified with the biggest names in the European Wine and Hospitality market, and he is the first Indian Oenologue certified by the Chambre d'Agriculture de France (French Agricultural Ministry).

The highlight of the event was all the culinary art presented by the hotels were paired with some innovative and some classic drinks. The dessert & drink degustation was showcased to a tasting panel that consisted of eminent personalities in the food space spearheaded by Chef Manjunath Mural, a Michelin Star Chef from Song of India, Singapore. This was strictly not a competition nor was there any scope of judgments or criticism. It was all in a great tenor to celebrate the love for desserts & drinks where the chefs showcased their best on the table for the audience with a healthy competitive spirit!
