International cuisines and interactions with icons of the culinary world will make next weekend memorable for Gurgaon residents.
The second edition of the Hindustan Times’ The Gourmet High Street is all set to return with a three-day festival from December 4-6 at Leisure Valley Park in Sector 29.
Food enthusiasts can enjoy every aspect of food from chefs’ demo to mixology sessions and workshops. The fest will bring out aromatic experiences about food at the cost of Rs 350 per head for one day and Rs 650 per head for three days.
Speaking on the concept, Kavneet Sahni, founder of The Gourmet High Street, said, “The Gourmet High Street is one of the rare festivals where people can learn about food and drinks, explore new trends in food and find out about new products and services offered by various existing and upcoming food brands and entrepreneurs. People can also meet leading celebrity chefs, mixologists and sommeliers. Handpicked restaurants will also be serving their signature dishes to visitors.”
Additionally, a gourmet marketplace (to pick fresh and organically produced vegetables, salads, homemade jams, sausages, cupcakes, honey, gluten-free cakes and biscuits) and other food-related events will be organised under one roof.
The festival aims to give residents a glimpse into the world of ‘secret recipes’ from the master chefs like Sanjeev Kapoor, Manish Mehrotra, Gaggan Anand, Sarah Todd and Sarans. Chef Gaggan Anand will conduct a demo for the first time in the country.
The event will also showcase ‘The Sipping Turf’, where the art of mixing, serving and having drinks can be experienced live. Some of the top mixologists and sommeliers will talk about the finest international and Indian drinks as well as mixology techniques currently popular in bars worldwide.
Also, people can participate at a first-of-its-kind cooking studio, where they can cook with the celebrity chefs.
“As the name suggests, it’s the only high street food festival of its kind. Best of celebrity chefs, world cuisines, select wines and high spirits under the same room,” Shruti Mittal, founder of Gurgaon Circle of Moms, said.
