There was the sound of chopping, whisking, frying, shaking and stirring across Bangalore, India in early August as budding chefs and mixologists brought together a culinary storm at the Food Hospitality World (FHW) Show. The Culinary and Mixology Competition in association with U.S. Premium Agricultural Products was organized as a concurrent special event along with the South India Culinary Challenge and Baking Contest. Touted as South India’s biggest culinary challenge, the event brought together top hotel and bakery chefs who showcased their gastronomic skills.

The three-day extravaganza at White Orchid Convention Centre, Bangalore, from August 9-11, highlighted the uniqueness and versatility of the U.S. Premium Agricultural Products such as U.S. Cranberries, Washington Apples, USA Pears, California Walnuts and U.S. Pecans.

The Culinary and Mixology Competition was a great success with participation from more than 30 chefs and mixologists across South India. The event saw some phenomenal talent where participants created innovative recipes using the finest U.S. Premium Agricultural Products, such as cranberries, as the main ingredients. Robert Hospet, Rasikta Kamble, and Harry Simon Peter from Lounge Hospitality Pvt. Ltd. (Embassy Leisure), Courtyard and Fairfield by Marriott, and ITC Gardenia, respectively, were declared winners of the Mixology Competition. They created Enter the Dragon, Black Pearl Treasure Chest, and Asian Elixir that were loved by the esteemed jury and audience alike.

“I am thrilled to have won the prestigious mixology competition,” said Hospet. “I’ve always enjoyed experimenting with food and this contest gave me a huge platform to showcase my expertise, appreciating my passion for food and taking my culinary journey to the next level. I am grateful that U.S. Premium Agricultural Products has given me this amazing opportunity to showcase my talent.”

“We are happy with the huge response that we have received at the FHW Show and would like to congratulate the winners for creating such innovative recipes using U.S. Premium Agricultural Products,” added Alyson Segawa, manager, international marketing accounts for Bryant Christie, Inc. “The key objective of the campaign was to showcase versatility and utilization techniques, and the participants have done exactly that using their exceptional talent. They went all out with their creativity and took the competition to another level with their outstanding performance. This show gives us an opportunity to directly reach out to our core audience and get feedback and suggestions for future innovations.”
