I was in The Oberoi, for a bloggers meet up a week back where Master Chef runner up and Bangalore celebrity chef Shazia Khan demystified ‘nouvelle cuisine’ for the home cook at a food tasting event.
The event hosted by TTK Prestige, showcased Chef Shazia demonstrating the ease of recreating Michelin star quality food at home and reiterating the importance of sourcing fresh local produce and quality ingredients for fine tasting food.
Chef Shazia conceptualized a fusion menu for the event comprising: dukkah crusted paneer with creamy beetroot, the brinjal affair, grilled figs with almond crumble and vanilla mousse, chilly mutton sliders, Cuban chicken skewers and specially concocted grape juice puchka shots.
During the preparation of her dishes, she used a range of innovative kitchen tools and gadgets from TTK Prestige that included: Prestige Air-Fryer, Prestige Slow Juicer, Clip on pressure cooker, Schott glass gas hob top, Automatic mixer grinder, Induction cook top, Gold cookware and the Veggie cutter.
Commenting on how TTK Prestige as a brand caters to the Indian consumer, Mr. Chandru Kalro, Managing Director, TTK Prestige said, “Cooking has evolved into an art form. It is important to have the right cooking tools and gadgets to recreate the perfect dish. In fact, for the home cook, a well equipped kitchen can dictate and have an impact on what he or she eats on a daily basis. Now, with the help of TTK Prestige, it is easy to re-create nouvelle cuisine from the comfort of your home.”
Speaking at the event Chef Shazia Khan said, “The palate of Indians is becoming increasingly sophisticated. People are open to trying out different cuisines as they are now being exposed to high end restaurants mushrooming across the country, shows like MasterChef as well as widespread international travel. Such events enable me to inspire, teach and motivate home cooks to create delicious Michelin restaurant quality food in their own kitchens.’’
