Friday January 20 ,2017 saw a special event held at Taj Mansingh by LT Foods with their wide range of rice brands like Daawat, Heritage and Royal. LT foods is one of the leaders in several countries including India and the US.
LT Foods brought together one of top ten rising chefs of the world; Chef “JJ” Johnson and world Reknowned Master Chef Sanjeev Kapoor from India.
Chef JJ, a highly awarded chef in New York was taken across various basmati growing farms in India to experience the culinary n cultural heritage of India.
On this unique event chef was symbolically handed over the secrets of making Biryani by Master Chef Sanjeev Kapoor who beside being a brand ambassador for Daawat Rice has had a long association with LT Foods. The association as per Chef Sanjeev Kappor is based on the fact that LT Foods apart from delivering quality products also strives to provide solutions relevant to the chef community.
LT Foods is working similarly in the US and across the Globe to spread awareness about basmati rice .
Chef JJ was equally excited about this unique event and his trip to India. Verbatim “I am in love with India. I just can’t get enough of its vibrant Flavours, Spices and Culture and to be around and see where authentic basmati rice is grown and to meet the farmers has been a game changer for me. Thanks to Royal Basmati and LTF, I have a whole new respect for the rice and the way it os grown and I can’t wait to get back and share some of my journey in new dishes that I will create using Basmati rice and all that I have learned about Indian food and Culture”
Mr Vijay Kumar Arora, CMD, LT Foods Ltd also emphasised on the company’s endeavor to take Daawat rice across the world and making it a part of American Households successfully so much so that it has attained the No.1 position in North America.
The event saw a live session of Biryani cooked by our very own Chef Sanjeev Kapoor as he actively interacted with the audience. It was great fun meeting Sanjeev Kapoor and learn his amazing dishes.
The event was followed by a sumptuous spread of dishes all created mainly using Basmati rice.
Specially the different types of Biryani’s made from Basmati rice, unique in itself. I enjoyed being a part of this event and learn so much about Basmati Rice, hope LT food continues to share their expertise and knowledge with us.
