PRESS CONFERENCE OF WORLD ON A PLATE 2018 | INDIA'S BIGGEST GOURMET FESTIVAL

'Twas exactly ten days before, when all the food enthusiasts, food writers, foodpreneurs and aspiring foodies of the charming city Bengaluru, were all getting ready once again to witness the most precious moments with the most influential chefs and super-stars of the culinary world. Yayyyy, you got it right! World On A Plate - Season 3 it is guys. A week before the grandeur event it was a flurry of social media buzz, Instagram, Twitter and Facebook were crazily overwhelming with WOAP posts, while few excited fans of these culinary Gods eagerly participated in the contests to win the passes, restaurateurs confirming their pop-ups and menu, VR Bengaluru also called as The Black Box on the Whitefield Road was getting all decked up for it's second birthday, and me marked my calendars well in advance, finished my Delhi itinerary a day before the event, cancelled all the weekend plans and all these just to be a part of this prestigious event.  


World On A Plate Season 3 was kick-started with the culinary expert and chef Saransh Goila demonstrating his butter chicken on the June 8th, walk-ins cherished the dish at the VR Bengaluru premises and few enjoyed the dish at the comfort of their home by ordering via Uber Eats. 
Finally, the big day came June 9th, and June 10th. Oh, My God! What a wonderful day it was. A bright day full of sweet surprises by Australia's most loved celebrity chefs and India's most loved celebrity chefs too.


 As you all know VR Bengaluru turned two and on behalf of the mighty celebrations, they inaugurated the "India's Biggest Gourmet Festival World On A Plate Season 3" produced by Gold Rush Entertainment. It was an immense pleasure for The Crumb Stash to be a part of this prestigious event and to meet the Dictionaries of  Culinary World, interact with them, get to be a part of their master-classes and also to taste the food exclusively and expertly curated by them. The place was absolutely buzzing and roaring with happy and charming vibes. 
The whole crowd screamed out in joy as the heart-throb George Calombaris entered the stage which was the most awaited moment for the food-lovers, and then came the most beautiful, gorgeous and knowledgeable Sarah Todd...




Okay! Hold on your breath now,  It was next Chef Ranveer Brar, the most handsome and people's all-time favorite 


and then the Butter Chicken guy, Saransh Goila, George Calombaris calls his butter chicken as the world's famous butter chicken. 


The food prepared by these culinary experts were super-glam to see and tasted super-perfect. Here is a sneak-peak of those gastronomic delights which captivated our senses.

Kiran Soans, CEO of Gold Rush Entertainment said, "We believe in creating exquisite experiences for our customers. Our previous association with VRSA for World on a Plate was a raging success. Even this season, we've brought global celebrities of fine dining: George Calombaris, Sarah Todd and Ranveer Brar. This edition of World on a Plate is bigger in scale and size and guaranteed to be an unparalleled culinary journey for connoisseurs and aspiring chefs." 


WOAP Season 3 was truly an extravaganza for all those fans of George Calombaris, as there was a GC gourmet fine dining experience too which happened in Toscano and the participants got a photo opportunity with George. 

In addition to all these, patrons came out in support for GIFT A MEAL with HUG, an initiative to collect funds for the underprivileged as part of a hunger management program which aims to give 1,00,000 meals in 2018. 

I wish to extend my hearty thanks to Philips for the contests and motivating people to win. It was truly a great experience to win prizes from the celebrity chefs. 



Overall, it was a sooper-dooper event. VR Bengaluru and Gold Rush, you guys keep rocking it every time, It was literally like a carnival with atleast 35 exciting pop-ups hosting a festival of flavours,  buzzing with food talks, fun,laughters, fan-girl/fan-boy moments.  Truly an amazing day which will forever be etched in my memories. 

Finishing off this blog-post with my fan-girl moments with the Culinary Dictionaries.
