An Instagram handle is reborn as a weekend food festival, bringing both local culinary flavours and the IPL spirit under one roof.
WITH over 80 food stalls, Taste of Madras hopes to be a big draw for families this weekend. Organised by PS Events, expect a carnival vibe with a rodeo bull ride, a bouncing castle, and more. They have also factored in IPL fans at the debut event—with live screening of the matches at the venue.
Started by engineers and friends, Sangeetha Madhan and Prashanth Rajkumar, in March last year, city-based PS Events has been organising weddings and corporate dos. “I am a foodie by nature and I started the Instagram handle ‘Taste of Madras’ in November last year, to review and write about food. Taking inspiration from the positive response I received, we wanted to organise a food festival,” shares a delighted Madhan, managing partner of PS Events, who is expecting over 10,000 footfalls.
Stalls have been booked by restaurants and cafes like Krispy Kreme, Nalaas Aappakadai and Costa Coffee, besides bakers like Shriram Rajendran (desserts from the Table) and Nishant Vijaykumar (Brownie Heaven), among others.
While there, catch up with chef Satit Chaimano of Thai Food House, as he cooks his signatures like pad Thai and Thai green curry. Meanwhile, Aasife Biriyani is set to break records with over 1,000 contestants partaking in ‘The Great Biryani Challenge’ on Sunday, in an attempt to enter the India Book of Records and Asia Book of Records.You can also snag some gifts and vouchers from Grofers.
