HYDERABAD: The three-day food festival, ‘Relish’, during which 15 restaurants came together to titillate the taste buds of food lovers, ended here on Sunday.
“We chose the restaurants in such a way that they do did not offer the same menu,” said Anil Arora, president of Next Events, which conducted the food festival.
Each participant set up a kitchen in the stall and featured four of their signature dishes and one iconic dish. In all, there were 80 special dishes for the visitors to feast on.
“We have conceptualised it in such a way that a visitor can choose different courses of meals from different stalls. He gets to pick starters from a stall, main course from another and a dessert from yet another,” Anil claimed.
‘Relish’ was modelled on an international concept wherein popular restaurants set up pop-up outlets for a few days to hold food festivals where there will be competition, celebration and excitement built around food.
The event’s attractions included a culinary competition held at three levels which was sponsored by the Culinary Academy of India and participated by students, homemakers and working professionals.
There was also a Celebrity Chef Theatre, where top ten chefs in the city showcased the best of their recipes.
