Got an invite for Master Chef Cooking class “Chef’s College” at Toscano, VR BENGALURU, Whitefield, Bangalore – “Uncover the secrets behind Gnocchi” by MasterChef. Gautham Balasubramanian.

Duration of the class – 2 hrs (10 A.M to 12 A.M) on Sunday, the event was organized once in a month. The class included a high tea and followed by lunch at Toscano.  

Chef. Gautham Balasubramanian gave a demo on how to make a Gnocchi with the tips and tricks, so that one could make easily at home. Being a mom, I would say most of the kids loves the Italian Cuisine, the same with my kids too. So soon my hands would be trying on this Gnocchi.

We got to see the demo of 3 different varieties of Gnnochi made by both Chef.Gautham and Chef.Sridhar. Dishes are Spinach and Ricotta Gnocchi, Potato Gnocchi and PATE A CHOUX-PARISIAN GNOCCHI.

She demonstrated the preparation of a cashew fruit based curry with potatoes, a kheer which is prepared by steaming the rice dumplings and later simmered in coconut milk. I would say it was yum, heavenly and delicious.

More over the best part that I loved over there was, it was not only the food but also, she shared the history of the food and its preparation right from the idly, hayagreeva halwa to mysore pak.

I was astonished when she shared the secret of Idly as they were prepared by steaming the ground black lentils without fermentation. Also, she added that the authentic and traditional mysore pak was the one with pores and crispy, not the soft once. She did share about a treasured book (culinary) which was passed to her from her great grandmother. Loved the way she cooked, share the secrets and her experience in culinary world.

After this blogger meet, we had a lunch, where we could get all the Karnataka’s authentic and traditional food in one place right from the Thatte Idly to the hayagreeva halwa. Also, there was stalls based on each and every region of Karnataka with their familiar food right from Mangalore till Kodagu. The food was great, loved it to the core – happy me and yummy tummy – as I got to have most of my favorite’s all together – Rava Idly, Thatte Idly, Bisibelebath, Masala Dosa, Tharvada peda and so on.
