Gaggan Rockup in Mumbai
POSTED ON SEPTEMBER 16, 2014
The wow never wavered. I loved every moment of hosting the Gagganrockup (not popup, please note) alongwith Timescity.com It was a rocking exclusive 5 hour gastronomical experience. Flamboyant, articulate 36 year old, Kolkatta born GagganAnand, globally acknowledged for his cutting edge Bangkok restaurant (Gaggan. Judged as Asias 3rd best and no 17 on the Worlds 50 list)) performed (that’s the only word) thru the evening, wearing his signature golden. Onitsuka Tiger keds et al. Along with his 6 member team (4 nationalities) he used science to deliver traditional indian flavors thru a 15 course dinner(be it the quivering white orb which exploded with thepapdi chaat flavor or an ethereal dhokla). In the Four Seasons swish “The Kitchen at The Mansion” applauding his wizardry and relishing his magic were the creme da la creme of gastronomes…. … Ambika Hinduja, Raman Macker, Riyaaz Amlani AD and Sabina Singh, Sanjeev and Alyona Kapoor, Jay Singh, Shobhaa De with Arundhati, Avantikka and Pramod.
