MasterChef Cooking Class at Toscano, VR Bengaluru, Whitefield, Bangalore

MasterChef Cooking Class at Toscano, VR Bengaluru, Whitefield, Bangalore

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.

Let me share the few pictures from the class…

WorldOnAPlate – MasterChefCooking – George Colambaris

The most precious, memorable, happiest, luckiest moment to me recently was attending the Master Chef Cooking Class by Australian Master Chef George Colambaris which was held at the International Food Carnival – WorldOnAPlate, sponsored by Godrej’s Cuisine Regale at JW Marriott.

Got an invite for MasterChef Cooking class held at JW Marriott sponsored by Godrej’s Cuisine Regale on 4th June (last Saturday), Bangalore. I was much excited and eagerly waiting for the clock to ring 3, as the class was from 3 p.m to 4 p.m. Imagining the horrible Bangalore traffic in mind, I hurried up around 1 p.m from my home to JW Marriott and reached there around 2:30 p.m.

JW Marriott was under tight security and banners all over the roads. There was no limits to my happiness, got the pass in the reception and rushed to the class. I was waiting for few minutes and happened to meet few of blogger friends, we were much excited for the class.

We had a great experience in the class. He prepared “Soft Shell Crab Souvlaki” which was wrapped in kerala paratha. It was heavenly and I liked it to the core. Blessed and Happy me.

Finally we also had a photo session, all of us got a chance to click a picture with the Australian Master Chef – George Colambaris.

Madraasi with Kids – Week 4

Madraasi with Kids – Week 4

As weeks start growing, I could see the interest and passion towards cooking in these kids. There are few who come 30 mins before the class and start asking me about the dish, the preparation and even the healthiest part of consuming the dish.

The main motive of this class is to stop kids consuming junk foods, when they knew to cook, they themselves prepare what they need. I feel really happy and proud, when I came to know from their mother’s, that they cook the same dish at home. Also the whole family loved the food and this would be most pride moment of Being Madraasi.

This week we had two classes and due to exams there were only three of the kids coming to the class, among three (two were the youngest in the class).

Let me share the recipes and pictures taken during the class…

Class 1: Indian Frittata – Click on this link for recipe: https://madraasi.com/2016/03/04/indian-frittata/

Frittata is an Italian dish prepared with egg as a key ingredient. Indian Frittata is the same as frittata but I have induced Indian spices like chili powder, cumin powder and garam masala, so the name. A good one for breakfast, I have also induced potatoes and carrots. Because of the egg, carrots, cheese, butter, potato it been a healthiest dish for kids. You can also add spinach to it.

ButterMilk

As summer started, I wanted teach at least few coolants, and here comes ButterMilk (Indian coolant) available at all Indian houses throughout the summer.

Class 2: Bread Gateau – Click on this link for recipe: https://madraasi.com/2016/03/04/bread-gateau/

Bread Gateau is an English recipe, gateau meaning a dish containing layers of fruits and cheese. As of summer, we could see varieties and colourful fruits and thought why to not go with fruits and also on the same hand it should be healthy for kids. Here comes my Bread Gateau, Bread Gateau goes out well for breakfast and as a dessert.
