When Arttd’inox Said Konichiwa
The well-appointed store of Arttd’inox in the capital was abuzz with excitement when Verve hosted a session of Japanese culinary art there. The ladies of New Delhi, with a yen for food, made their way to the outlet on the bustling Defence Colony Road for an interactive exchange.
The ladies were given a folder containing the recipes before the tutor for the day began his culinary demonstration. Sipping on glasses filled with hot matcha tea and Guppy iced green tea, they waited for their initiation into the intricacies of Japanese cuisine. Chef Vikram Khatri opened Guppy by ai two years ago and is a force to reckon with in the world of culinary art. The chef stood behind the special kitchen counter — and Arttd’inox boasts of the first stainless steel modular kitchen from the House of Jindals.
He held the ‘house’ in his hands as he took the audience through the different recipes. Chef VK began with the Guppy house salad — and the platters were passed around so that the ladies could get a closer glimpse of its attractive presentation. The beetroot and plump avocado tartare was followed by the California sushi roll — the latter was a super hit, with several ladies wanting to try to make it.
After the demonstration, it was time for some coffee and conversation, and the attractive spread of niblets was a palate pleaser. The California rolls, apple tarts and more made their way onto the dainty plates. Seen chatting with the culinary master were Puja Bhasin, Rima Mehra, Mohita Indrayan, Veenu Kapur, Kanan Kapur, Devki Kapur, Neeru Sahni, Urvashi Khosla, Titli Sahni, Asha Oberoi and more.
The invitees strolled around the store admiring its new offerings — they admired the Floret platter range. Inspired by the paper plates of Indian street food, the platters open up with beautiful lustrous wrinkles of steel and is perfect for a presentation of salads, snacks and cakes. The guests were presented with goodie bags containing issues of Verve and IQ and festive vouchers from Arttd’inox and Guppy by ai.
