If you are a lover of great food and a connoisseur of authentic cuisines then this is an event you will enjoy.

As it’s once again time for the culinary wars in the capital. PHD Chamber in collaboration with Indian Culinary Forum, Indian Federation of Culinary Associations and HT City celebrates the international chef’s day with what promises to be a glittering awards ceremony. To be held on November 14 at Hotel Ashok, the gala ceremony is meant to bring into the limelight the best chefs in the city, who more than often end up being behind the kitchen doors. And like past years, this year’s ceremony will include a multi-cuisine charity dinner with a green theme. On offer will be organic cuisine dished out by more than 20-35 leading hotels and restaurants.

While some of the top honours are selected by a jury, all the others awards are decided by skills test held right before the event.

Previous years have seen some legendary names from the city’s culinary cauldron win awards at this gala event, like: Arvid Saraswat of the Taj Group, Bakshish Dean of the The Park, Ritu Dalmia of Diva and MS Gupta of The Ashok. But the innovative part of the awards gala dinner is the fact that it’s open to everyone. So, if you’d like to sample the fare of the city’s best chefs while doing your bit for charity, all you need is to buy a donor pass for the dinner from the PHD House in Hauz Khas.

And the award categories are

Golden Hat Chef Award
Silver Hat Chef Award
Chef of the Year Award
Lady Chef of the Year
Master Chef International Cuisine Award
Master Chef Oriental Cuisine Award
Master Chef North India Cuisine Award
Master Chef South India Cuisine Award
Master Chef Kebabs Award
