Chefs on a Mission!

As I was standing in the kitchen and looking at Chefs JD (Indigo Deli), Viraf (Cafe Zoe) and Gresham (Smoke House Room, Delhi) I couldn't help but smile. I was in the same kitchen with 3 chefs that I greatly admire and respect! We all got together to help raise funds for the Manav Foundation. When the boys from Restaurant Week spoke to me about this event I was thrilled. The concept was simple: 4 Chefs, 6 courses, 50 people. The entire sum raised would help the foundation to spread awareness about adult mental health and mental illness.
Gresham was handling the first two courses (passion fruit corn!), Chef JD made an angolotti with roasted pumpkin and hazelnut, the main course of stewed baby vegetables and a beetroot risotto was by Viraf and I made a raspberry and chocolate macaron cake :)
It's not everyday that one gets to be a part of something like this, and I consider myself extremely lucky to have been a part of the team!
