Genesis Foundation conducted its 7th CEO Chefs Share-a-Smile Lunch at Petal Garden, The Crowne Plaza Today, Gurgaon on the 29th of January.
Genesis Foundation is an NGO in India that raises funds for medical care of under privileged children who are critically ill.
There were 10 CEO chefs in attendance cooking a variety of cuisines ranging from Japanese and Malay to Indian chaat and flambeed crepes. While the CEO chefs were in charge of cooking one dish each, served up hot on the spot, the Crowne Plaza kitchen staff had put together a wonderful mini-buffet associated with each cuisine.
The food was excellent and our contributions were for a good cause, so it was a win-win situation all round. 7 children are hopefully ging to be treated with the 15lakhs collected at this event.
The pictures are way more evocative than any words that I could write so here they are:
