Last Saturday got to attend a cook-off event hosted by Chef’s Basket with Something’s Cooking. We were on time to the event – the studio – something cooking looks stunning with attractive colors over the wall, and their interiors are mind blowing. I was like admiring the studio, well-spaced with beautifully set modular kitchen cabinets and too many ultra-modern equipments.

Coming to the event – The event was hosted by Chef’s Basket, not only me few of my foodie friends were also invited for the event. We had a lovely evening, first of all we were given a brief section about story of chef’s basket and their products. Secondly, we were introduced to the cook-off section, we were divided to team and there was totally 8 teams with 3 to 4 participants. I was with the second team and it’s me, Mahima Koteshwar, Bijan Mishra and my daughter – Hiranmayi who joined the hands for the event.
We were asked to cook 2 varieties of chef’s Basket products – cooking of the first dish was purely based on their way, which we get to know from the packets and it was KHOW SUEY Noodles – Spicy creamy noodles from Burma and Northern Thailand. And the second one was CHEESY ALFREDO Pasta – here was the twist, we wanted to make use of the ingredients in the packet but in unique way. We have cooked the pasta by following their procedure and as a twist, we halved capsicum, de-seed it and then cooked the capsicum in olive oil for a while, in all the sides. Then filled the capsicum with pasta, topped it with little shredded cheese and served hot.
After all the cook-off, there was a product launching section – yeah, they have launched their Dinner Box and Tiramisu.
Also we got a gift hamper with four of the Chef’s Basket product. Thanks a lot for Naveen, Sumangala (Chef’s Basket) for the invite and Something’s cooking (studio) for making it possible.
