Hyatt Culinary Challenge-people

A unique initiative by Hyatt Hotels in India

October 31, 2018, India: To emphasize Hyatt’s focus on its rich culinary heritage, Hyatt Hotels in India hosted the fifth season of ‘Hyatt Culinary Challenge-people cooking for people’ during the last weekend of October across 14 cities.

Hyatt Culinary Challenge was conceptualized as a unique event that will bring together individuals from the corporate realm on a common platform where they could showcase their culinary expertise and passion for food in an interactive culinary event. Each participant was paired with a child participant from partner NGOs to create a participant choice recipe to be adjudged by a panel of distinguished judges from the culinary sphere.

Speaking on the occasion, Harleen Mehta, VP, Sales Operations, Hyatt India said, “Hyatt hotels around the world are recognized for their innovation, creativity and strong focus on Food and Beverage. The objective behind running the Hyatt Culinary Challenge was to give a wider audience across India the opportunity to engage with Hyatt as a brand by participating in ‘people cooking for people’. The overwhelming response that we have witnessed across the cities, over the past years, has been truly encouraging and we look forward to another wonderful edition.”

The preliminary Runners up and winners at each city were awarded a stay at various Hyatt Hotels across India and the winner has been invited to participate in the Grand Finale at Hyderabad in December 2018. The winner from the finale will win a family holiday at one of the exotic international destinations of Hyatt.

At Andaz Delhi, Ms. Mabet van Rensburg – South African High Commission Delhi – Counsellor Political was adjudged the winner. She prepared a recipe named ‘Happy brunch’.

She will now represent Delhi at the Grabnd Finale slated in December 2018 at Park Hyatt Hyderabad whwere she will compete with 14 finalists from across India for the coveted prize – a holiday with airfare at the Hyatt Centric Times Square New York. Follow the latest updates on #CookWithHyatt
