True to their promise of being bigger and better in 2016; this year, for the first time, the SuperChef team along with the members of the OWC put forth a mouth watering array of food at Chennai’s First International Food Carnival on 21st February.

The exclusive offerings of out-of-the-box food vendors, over 35 food stalls, sufficient seating capacity, live music by Orlando and his team in the shimmering moonlight, made the event a real treat to all of Chennai’s foodies.

When invited upon stage to say a few words, Consul General of America, Phillip A. Min said it was true delight to be a part of this royal affair, especially with all of its proceeds going to charity and quickly took the opportunity to promote their own stall, where he spent a considerable amount of the evening handing out cookies personally. The chief guest for the event was Mr. Bharat Joshi, British Deputy High Commissioner at Chennai.

Chef Vinoth Kumar, Sai Institute of Carving, who already has feats recorded by the Guinness Book of Records and Miracles Book of Records, carved ice in front of an enthralled audience.
The food stalls had biryani, from the Nawab’s own kitchen to phad thai noodles that the ladies from the Thai stall of OWC members put up. Flavourful Chicken Rice by the Singaporeans, succulent fish and chips of UK, scrumptious wood fired pizza, delectable Belgian waffles, delicious Nasi Goreng, hearty Bunny Chow tightly wrapped Sushi rolls, tasty Shepherd’s pies and yummy flap jacks, the crowd literally had the world on their plate.
