Everything you need to know about Michelin star chef Marco Pierre White’s Bengaluru visit
The second edition of World On A Plate, Bengaluru kicks off next Saturday at The Ritz-Carlton and we can’t keep calm. The reason? A certain someone called Marco Pierre White, of course! If you’re a fan of Masterchef Australia, you’ll be familiar with Marco. But the legendary British chef is known for a many others things, such as being the youngest chef to be awarded three Michelin stars and training some of the world’s most famous chefs including Mario Batali, Gordon Ramsay (he even made Ramsay cry!), Curtis Stone and Shannon Bennett.
Slated for June 1 and 2, World On A Plate will see Marco curating an exclusive sit-down dinner and brunch. He will also conduct two masterclasses and have an interaction session with noted chef Manu Chandra at Nolte’s Social Kitchen at WOAP. The culinary event this time around follows the theme ‘Garden of Eden’ and will have an organic produce marketplace, a beer street and a Sunday Sundowner in the garden. There will also be competitions and panel discussions judged and presided over by Marco.
“Namaste India! A few months ago, I had the honour of being part of World on A Plate Season 4 in Mumbai, where I got to experience the love and passion India has for food. I have so much to consume and learn from this magical land that a single visit couldn’t suffice. I'm excited to announce that I'm coming back, but this time to Bangalore, to understand the differences between the regional cuisines of the two cities and its famous local delicacies,” said Chef Marco Pierre White in a press release. “As I mentioned during my last visit, India gave me more than I gave India. It’s time I give back some more by sharing my kitchen secrets and favourite cooking techniques while creating some of my signature dishes using only the finest fresh local produce available in Bangalore. I hope Bangalore can surprise me as much as Mumbai has!” he added.
Other highlights includes masterclasses (10 in total) by other celebrated chefs, food pup-ups by 22 Bengaluru restaurants, an award function with categories like World On A Plate Restaurant of The Year, Home Chef of the Year and Food Photographer of the Year.
