Britannia Good Day Chunkies hosts a tete-a-tete with The MasterChef Australia trio
Britannia Good Day Chunkies, one of the partners for India’s first ever International Food Festival - World On A Plate, provided the food lovers in the city a sneak peek into the lives, quirky moments and the gastronomic journeys of the 3 MasterChef Australia judges at an exclusive tête–à–tête at U.B. City Amphitheatre yesterday.
The 3 MasterChef Australia judges - Matt Preston, Gary Mehigan and George Calombaris, spoke avidly about the culinary delights they have experienced through the years – from street to gourmet food, their personal moments of indulgence, favourite recipes and their journey to being professional chefs, critics and food business owners. Hosted by the vivacious Maria Goretti, the event witnessed them sharing their passion for food, behind the scenes moments from MasterChef Australia and inspirational thoughts encouraging aspirational youngsters.
The most animated of the lot Gary Mehigan threw boxes of Britannia Good Day Chunkies at the crowd when the conversation came to the cookies they love. He also commented, “I absolutely love cooking under pressure cooker situations. It is a part of who I am and I thrive on it. We advise the MasterChef Australia contestants to lose the fear of failure!”
The suave George Calombaris said, “If you really want to get where you want to be you have to push yourself. You have to live and breathe that passion. If someone asks me what my hobby is, I say food and I watch food shows during the time that I have to spare.”
Present on the occasion Mr. Ali Harris Shere, Director of Marketing, Britannia India said, “The World on a Plate food festival is a perfect platform for food enthusiasts who value taste and sensory experience of food, and thus the perfect partner for us. We were delighted to host this special session for MasterChef Australia fans, where they got to hear the icons of gourmet food, reveal their quirks and life experiences. They are amongst the finest chefs of today and Chunkies stands for the finest of cookies. We hope that the coming together of both has helped create an enjoyable experience for the foodies in the city.”
Besides food lovers, the audience also consisted of winners from the digital contest #ChefsWithChunkies, wherein the participants shared innovative recipes created with Britannia Good Day Chunkies. The event turned out to be a true foodie’s delight with uplifting stories and an interesting talk of food, family and personal trivia amidst a roaring crowd.
