Recently I was in Jaipur to attend the second edition of Gourmet Getaway – an event that combines food from across the globe in an international setup.

This event made me ponder on a lot of interesting things and as a food writer; this event was informative as well as interesting. An open session hosted at Fairmont Jaipur, where we got an opportunity to hear the stalwart of Indian food – Chef Manjit Singh Gill. According to him, it is not possible to document and record recipes, as in India, food changes at every 100 km. Each home has their way of preparing the same dish and hence it gets impossible to record an authentic recipe. He also said that food reflects the mood of the chef and it is very important for all the chefs to come in the kitchen with a happy mind.

The event was conceptualized by Dushyant Singh whose restaurant On the House (OTH, which also won an award recently) is one of the most popular cafés in Jaipur. He also won the award for the best restaurateur of the year.

Gourmet Getaway kick-started with cycling tour in the morning where all the invited media and bloggers went for a trip on a cycle.

During lunch at OTH, we also attended pizza making class by Chef Antonio Scirocco and I was bowled away by his simple yet delicious fresh pizzas from the wood-fired oven.

The wine and chocolate event hosted by Chef Barbara at Meriyaki Kitchen was not only very informative but interesting too.

Food served by chefs are from different countries.

The event was organized well and Dushyant was an excellent host. Amidst the entire bustle, he greeted everyone with a warm smile.

I am already looking forward to the gourmet getaway third edition next year.
