TPCI organises tea session as a precursor to IndusFood 2019

New Delhi, Jan 10 (IANS) Ahead of the upcoming mega international food and beverage show IndusFood 2019 , Trade Promoters Council of India (TPCI) on Thursday organised an experiential Tea Tasting and Food Pairing session as a precursor to the festival.

Renowned Tea Consultant for the Food & Beverage industry Amy B. Dubin and Master Culinary Craftsman Kumar Sambhav presented different preparations of exquisite tea and Indian fusion food for international palate at the session here.

Sharing her experience with Indian tea, Dubin said in a statement: "I am in India representing Indian tea as a guest of the TPCI because of my passion for Indian tea specifically, my ability to create culture and teach vocabulary around tea, my understanding of the complex US market and my background in event planning.

"I am very excited to collaborate with Indus Food 2019 and TPCI and take Indian tea to the level it deserves."

During the session, Sambhav tried out many modified Indian dishes for the international palate such as Indian 'paratha' styled Fajitas, Gulab Jamun Roulade and Coconut Kheer.

"I tried to create food items with Indian flavors considering the international palate which are easy to eat and very quick to make.

"I developed these fusion dishes by strictly using homegrown ingredients maintaining its authenticity as an Indian product," he said.

The second edition of IndusFood will be held from January 14-15 in Greater Noida in the National Capital Region (NCR).
