Wonder Wok Chinese food festival
For the food lovers, which want to be health cautious, Chinese recipes may prove to be the best option for them, both taste and health wise, advices executive Chef of Hotel Niyaaz Pranesh Nag.
Speaking to AAB, Pranesh shared his views, stating that many are unaware of what exactly the Chinese dishes of Indian kitchen are. There are many vendors or hoteliers which sell so called Chinese dish `Chicken 65′, in which chicken pieces are coated with Tandoori paste and are fried. Tandoori masala is North Indian and has nothing to do with Chinese recipes, he clarified.
Under the Chef’s guidance a Chinese food festival has been organised named “Wonder Wok” at Hotel Niyaaz opp. CBT Belgaum. A special hall has been reserved for this fest and one could try eating the noodles with the Chop sticks as well.
Pranesh, who has a rich experience of more than a decade in his profession, has served in different top 4 star hotels of Goa and other places in India. He believes S K Mukharjee of Goa as his `Maha Guru’, who has served for 48 years in hoteling industry. Just about a month ago, Pranesh has joined Niyaz
Hotel Private Limited of Belgaum for acquiring his first experience in the busy moving `Food World’.
Pranesh, who is an Oriental food specialist said that he has been studying the taste of Belgaum since one month, which proved to be different from the taste of Goa. He said that most of the people here prefer medium spicy food. Pranesh said, `in any hotel, waiters have a important role to play, apart
from the chef and so they have to undergo special training for the same. It is because they are the mediators between the customers and the chef. Their role is to understand the taste liked by the customer, if required guide them to choose the recipe and let the chef know, what exact taste the
customer requires,’. Where as cooking can be defined as perfect combination of art and technology done by the chef, he added.
Pranesh focused on the importance of food policy and education, cookery, hospitality, innovation, product development (research) and more, in hotel business.
May it be kitchen, house or its surroundings, maintaining cleanliness for hygienic atmosphere is a must to lead a healthy life for everyone, says Chef Pranesh Nag, according to whom, many of the people in
here are negligent about maintaining cleanliness, after they step out of their houses. The chef, who has recently migrated from Goa to Belgaum, said, `Belgaum is a wonderful place, with fascinating climate and loving people. The only thing felt negative is that many of the people throw garbage or spit anywhere, when they are out of their houses. He said that though City Corporation is responsible for maintaining the hygiene atmosphere of the city, it is also the duty of every citizen to cooperate it for doing so.
