Shangri-La’s - Eros Hotel, New Delhi celebrated International Chef’s Day on Tuesday, to honour its culinary masters and recognise the pivotal role chefs play in society.
Executive Chef Neeraj Tyagi and his team of master chefs were all geared up to make this day special by celebrating it with the young patrons of ‘Bal Sahyog’ a children’s world and social welfare organisation founded in 1954, to look after the needs and safety of orphaned and neglected children. The hotel’s culinary masters also celebrated Global Hand Washing Day and World Food Day during the International Chef’s Day.
The chefs raised awareness about hand washing amongst the kids at ‘Bal Sahyog’. They motivated the children to wash hands with soap and inculcated in them the basics of hygiene to prevent diseases.
Chef Neeraj Tyagi and his team organised a live cook out for the kids and whipped up their favourite delicacies while conducting a career talk. This was followed by a sumptuous lunch crafted by the hotel’s culinary masters for the little ones. The hotel’s executive committee served lunch to the kids.
A birthday celebration was also organised at ‘Bal Sahyog’ for the children. On the same day, Chef Neeraj Tyagi and his team also organised the traditional cake mixing ceremony on the occasion of International Chef’s Day at the recently launched multi cuisine restaurant, Tamra.
Spreading the cheer along with the chefs, the ceremony invited the participation of guests and colleagues amidst tradition and fanfare dressed in typical chefs’ attire.
Everyone rolled up their sleeves and put their hands in the mixing pots to make the perfect Christmas cake. Afterwards, the mixture was placed in airtight bags and left to mature until around Christmas, when it will be blended with the cake batter and baked.
Every year on October 20, members of the World Association of Chefs Societies commonly known as WACS, celebrate International Chefs Day.
