Hoteliers Meet

For a common cause

Delicious: Traditional food being served at the venue.

Although the glamour quotient was a little low as some of the movie stars who were scheduled to grace the occasion could not make it to the inaugural function.The venue, however, was buzzing with representatives from all branches of the hotel and hospitality industry.

Speaking on the occasion, the Bruhat Bangalore Hotels’ Association president K N Vasudeva Adiga said it was the first time an event of such a magnitude was held in the City and felt that these events served to highlight issues concerning local hoteliers. He also felt that this would be a food platform to discuss issues concerning the hotel industry such as food adulteration law, tourism, tax burden, shortage of labour, hygiene, pricing of food items and future challenges. The highlight of the three-day event was the huge variety of food from different parts of  the country as well as a few varieties of international cuisine.

 Chefs from hotels and restaurants geared up to lay out a vast variety of speciality items that included well-known favourites as well as lesser known speciality items. Among the delicacies served to the gathering were unusual vegetarian dishes from Bihar like Litti-Chokha and Hing kachori with Aloo Jhol from West Bengal. Tamil Nadu, Kerala and Andhra Pradesh were well-represented and so were the interior parts of Karnataka.
