Vikhroli Cucina to host The Culinary Chroniclers Conclave
Godrej Group’s flagship property - Vikhroli Cucina has joined hands with Food writer, gastronome and consultant Rushina Munshaw-Ghildiyal to host the inaugural chapter of The Culinary Chroniclers Conclave. The conclave aims to bridge the many streams dedicated to the art and craft of documenting and chronicling food.
The Conclave, in its first edition, will focus on the streams of art, literature and photography and media production. It will include a spectrum of offerings such as keynotes, discussions, lectures and masterclasses by well-known experts in these fields. Bhaskar Ramesh, Head of YouTube Sales & Brand Advertising, will be hosting a session on ‘Documenting food through Digital Video: The present, the future, and the adept.’ Distinguished peers such as Ankiet Gulabani, Antoine Lewis, Vikram Doctor, Marryam H Reshii, Dr. Mohsina Mukadam, Ruchi Shrivastava, Rushina Munshaw-Ghildiyal, Saee Koranne-Khandekar, Saba Gaziyani, Sourish Bhattacharya, Chef Varun Inamdar, and Vir Sanghvi will share their perspectives on the past, present and future of chronicling food. The Conclave will also host unique exhibits and installations, including a Chocolate installation by Zeba Kohli to serve as creative inspirations.
The conclave is conceived and designed by Rushina Munshaw Ghildiyal. Speaking about the conclave, she said “Food has always played an important role in all our lives. And there have always been people, who have taken it upon themselves to record the diverse facets of food consumption, using whatever mediums are available to them at the time. Their chronicles about what their people eat, when they eat, how they eat, and where they eat, become important windows to understanding their cultures, and sometimes through that, to our very own. I conceived the Culinary Chroniclers Conclave as a common platform for all our modern chroniclers from various disciplines to connect with one another, share divergent perspectives and hopefully weave a wonderful new narrative around food. Personally, I can’t wait to see them all of them under one roof.”
Delighted to host this unique industry event, Sujit Patil, Vice President and Head – Corporate Brand and Communications, Godrej Industries Limited and Associate Companies said “Vikhroli Cucina is an initiative by Godrej to create an ecosystem where key influencers in the food space engage with each other, cross-pollinate ideas and discuss trends for the betterment of the industry. This platform brings together chefs, Food bloggers, Culinary Experts, and brands in the food space and we expect the same excitement with an intellectual twist through the Culinary Chroniclers Conclave in season 4.”
The Conclave will culminate on a grand note with a felicitation ceremony to honour individuals and initiatives. An eminent panel of peers will select these individuals for their exemplary mission, vision and/or impact in the space of documentation and chronicle of food in each stream. The Culinary Chroniclers Conclave will be held on Saturday, 30-June-2018, between 9:00 am - 7:30 pm, at the Auditorium, Godrej One, Vikhroli, Mumbai
