Humane Society International, in collaboration with Institute of Hotel Management at Bhubaneswar conducted its first ever plant based culinary training for over 50 aspiring chefs at the institute on 14th-15th March 2019.
The workshop was led by Chefs Susmita Subbaraju and Ram of Carrots, India’s first vegan restaurant. The workshop focused on creating awareness among future chefs on the growing trend towards plant-based food and developing their skills to incorporate plant-based alternatives to conventional animal products such as plant-based milk and cheese, egg – free scramble and plant-based desserts.
Recommended by The National Council for Hotel Management and Catering Technology, the plant-based programmes at culinary institutions is crucial to cater to the increasing consumer demand for sustainable, ethically produced food. Equipping chefs in India with globally relevant diverse set of skills has the potential to increase employability of Indian chefs worldwide.
