Star World & Star World HD cook up a gourmet evening at Mumbai's Olive Bar & Kitchen
MasterChef Australia, a show that’s captivated Indian audiences for seven seasons, is currently airing its 8th season on Star World and Star World HD every Monday to Friday at 9 pm. For the first time ever, the channel is airing the show right after its international telecast. To celebrate the launch of the new season, Star World and Star World HD hosted an exclusive gourmet gala in the city last evening.
Over the years, Star World through MasterChef Australia has brought about a food revolution exposing Indians to gourmet food and terminologies that have now become a part of everyone’s daily parlance. Based on this insight, the channels 360 degree marketing campaign for this year, “Everyone’s speaking gourmet with MasterChef Australia”, was also infused into the event. To deliver this unique experience, Star World partnered with Food Talk India, an exclusive online community of people with a passion for food, and Olive Bar and Kitchen, one of the most premium restaurant chains in the country.
Drawing inspiration from 5 techniques seen on MasterChef Australia like sous vide, consommé, confit, smoking and aerate, Chef Rishim Sachdeva created 5 amazing amuse bouche dishes to bring the gourmet experience alive through these techniques. The evening was a resounding success with the guests enjoying the food and speaking gourmet all through the night.
"In a gourmet evening co-hosted by Olive Bar & Kitchen and Star World for MasterChef Australia, Rishim Sachdeva, Executive Chef, Olive Bar and Kitchen brought alive a gourmet experience using a range of stellar cooking techniques. At Olive Bar & Kitchen, we constantly push the boundaries of cuisine keeping in mind the affinity our guests have towards gourmet food and new culinary trends that has grown extensively in India. Our chefs constantly discover new techniques and present them to the discerning diner and this event is an extension of the same." says AD Singh.
Says Anjali Batra, Founder of Food Talk India, “A true culinary journey – over the years MasterChef Australia has changed the way we not only eat but also the way we think and speak about food. Our palette has evolved as we got exposed to all these wonderful ingredients, gourmet cooking techniques and some of the most amazing Chef’s. Today, we #SpeakGourmet. Inspired by some of these techniques today we took our guests on an exciting MasterChef inspired journey with an amuse bouche to 5 techniques as seen on the show, bringing gourmet to their plate.”
