Manipal, 22 October 2010: Budding chefs and others, aspiring to make it big in the hospitality industry, put up a grand display of a variety of bread common in other countries, at Fortune Inn Valley View here. The occasion was World Chef’s Day and World Bread Day celebrated together by the staff and students of Welcome group Graduate School of Hotel Administration (WGSHA), Manipal.


General Manager, Fortune Inn Valley View, Gopi Mohan Nair was the chief guest. He called upon the budding chefs to reduce waste of food and pollution in the kitchen and promote clean and healthy practices in their profession. Principal of WGSHA P Gopalakrishna and Vice Principal Kulmohan Singh were present.


The students have been working at it for the last three days and some 75 varieties of all shapes, sizes and flavour were put on display. They included pempernickel, pain poilane, German beer bread, Panama Cinnamon, Brioche, walnut, mixed herb bread, malted granary loaf, ham plus bell pepper bread, kulich, Kolich, steamed semolina, Hungarian Sour Cream rolls, fruited black bread, banana bread, cheese and garlic bread etc.



The assortment had breadbaskets from France, Germany, United Kingdom, Eastern Europe, America, Middle Eastern countries and Italy. Other varieties like breakfast bread, flavoured bread and rich loaves were on display. Chef Vasanthan Sigamany said that bread day celebration was a way of giving respect to bread.


A number of competitions were held in the run-up to the celebrations.  One of them was, “Go green recipe contest”. Chef Tirugnanasambantham said that the concept was to prepare food with nutritive value using locally produced vegetables. “The students were required to go to the local markets, pick up vegetables of their choice and make the dishes”. All this was done to encourage local produce.


A collage competition was held to go with the green theme. And to encourage budding chefs to understand corporate social responsibilities as part of the profession, the food was given to Aasare, the home for the mentally challenged, run by Manipal University.
