It was a day dedicated to food lovers of the city when chef Gary Mehigan — popular as one of the judges of ‘Masterchef Australia’ — gave a sneak peek of his culinary delights in the form of a masterclass in Bangalore on June 4. Mehigan — along with Masterchef India 2010 winner Pankaj Bhadouria — co-hosted the ultimate culinary extravaganza – The KNORR Masterclass.
The KNORR Masterclass witnessed Mehigan making a chicken delicacy along with Bhadouria — who is also Knorr’s brand ambassador — for the live audience who were smitten by the Australian gastronomic king’s food-making process and his sense of humour.
Mehigan began the class by giving all those present a first-hand peek into the captivating world of incredible food, not only entertaining the audience with compelling stories of his magnificent food experiences over the years, but also inspiring them to pursue their food dreams and experiment with gourmet food and terminologies in their daily lives.
The great food master also talked about his love for Indian food and how the clever use of Indian spices could completely change the taste and flavour of a particular dish! “I was in India before and took back many of the spices from here. Mixed it with many of my food recipes and it tastes delicious,” he said post his masterclass.
During the masterclass, he created some dishes for the audience and the roast chicken he made — using KNORR’s Pao Bhaji masala — had the audience begging for more. He attributed the delicious taste of the dishes to the incredible blend of spices and the distinctive flavour introduced by new variants of KNORR masalas.
Ending the session on a high note, both master chefs came together to co-create roast chicken. In addition, he also shared that he was quite excited to visit India again.
