Manipal: Welcomegroup Graduate School of Hotel Administration (WGSHA) organised a two-day food fest on March 2 and 3 at Chaitya Hall in Fortune Inn Valley View. The theme of the food fest was Urban Tadka, and it saw a variety of North Indian cuisine with a Continental blend.
The fest attracted over 150 people on the first day. The visitors applauded the effort put in by students. Sagar Rai, a third year student of Kasturba Medical College, Manipal said, “I like the innovation they put in, the twist rendered by them to ordinary food is amazing.”
On day two, the turn out doubled as more food lovers drove in. The major attraction for foodies was a dish called ‘Jwalamukhi’. Other delicacies included various mock tails and mouth-watering appetizers. The kitchen was handled by Lalit Garg, a fourth year student of Bachelors in Hotel Management.
Talking about the fest, Akhil Laul, a fourth year student of Bachelors in Hotel Management said, “You get to learn the basics of catering at a restaurant from such events.”
“Such events are meant for giving hands-on experience to students about running a restaurant,” said Kshama Vishwakarma, faculty of Food Production at WGSHA. “They (the students) are being graded on the basis of their performance at the fest,” she added. The fest overall saw around 400 food lovers dropping in to check out the North Indian-Continental fusion recipes.
The fest was inaugurated by the faculty members of the institute on March 1. The fest was organised as part of the academic curriculum followed in the institute. The college organises four food fests every year based on different themes.
