Shangri-La’s Eros Hotel is celebrated the ninth International Chef’s Day on 20 October 2013 to honour our culinary masters and to recognise the pivotal role chefs play in society.It is also a day for helping young chefs. Most importantly, though it is a day to recognise the very important role that chefs play in our societies because, they have a great responsibility of not feeding people, but also giving nourishment and education. Chefs are responsible for leading the way in using ingredients sensibly and responsibly. The day was planned to salute their culinary spirit and their art of crafting magic for the taste buds.

Not just a brunch and lunch, the day held a cake mixing ceremony in the lobby of Shangri-La’s that brought to life the rich tradition, heralding and unveiling the spirit of the festive season in all its grandeur. Guests rolled up their sleeves and put their hands in the mixing pots to make the perfect Christmas cake. The mixture was placed in airtight bags and left to mature until around Christmas, when it will be blended with the cake batter and baked.After the traditional ceremony, the chefs took a walk to India Gate driving a noble cause of ‘Clean Delhi for a Green Future’ to pick up the trash that mars the beauty of the iconic Delhi landmark.Food, tradition and a keen foresight for the future. What better way to celebrate the power of chefs than this! Head over to Shangri-La to experience a piece of this magic.
