The aim of the activity was to provide a platform for trainees to showcase their talent and explore new areas of interest. The event was conducted with a view to create awareness about the nutritional value of food cooked without flame, to know to prepare, present and serve food items, to avoid fear for interacting with customers. 

The trainees were divided into 10 groups of three or four members. They prepared dishes like peanut butter chocolate cake, varieties of milkshake, coconut laddu, peanut chat, Choco lava cake, fruit salad with yoghurt, pineapple sandwich, Oreo milkshake, lemon rocky mock tail, triple layer sandwich, veg burger, pani poori and brownie bread with ice cream.  They served the dishes in an artistic and aesthetic way which was most appealing and the display was a visual treat tickling to the taste buds.
