The evolution in the food space is getting refined by the day
The evolution in the food space is getting refined by the day. From the sophistication of the coffee culture in India to the extremely exorbitant food extravaganza mentioned in Chef Zubin’s guest article in this issue, there are dynamic developments taking place in the food space. Do take time out to read the article by the chef as it may shock you to know the extent to which people can go to experience sheer luxury for the palate. The story clearly says that one could opt for the gold flake speckled US$ 1,000 Westin Bagel or the US$ 4,200 Pizza Royale 007 which comes with caviar and cognac soaked lobster. There is a US$ 3,200 gold leaf crusted ‘Samundari Khazana’ that comes with lobster, caviar and quail eggs and the US$ 1.6 million Strawberry Arnaud dessert that comes with a glittery ring set with a fabulous, flawless pink diamond. The purse seems to have lost value to satisfy the call of the palate.
The coffee beans are also writing their new growth story in India. The story on Lavazza betting big on HoReCa to drive India’s coffee culture also makes an interesting read. They are all set to launch a world class training centre in India. The company has plans to invest on the education of coffee, both with consumers and the influencers (Baristas).
Our cover story this issue also takes you to a different level of experience. It takes you to the hills to stay amidst nature’s splendour. India is blessed with a host of well kept hill resorts, which are classic and charming. From Manali to Munnar, from Gangtok to Gulmarg, there some interesting spots to explore and experience.
