The campaign is being promoted heavily through social media

INDIA. Travel Food Services (TFS) has organised what it says it a “first of its kind” cookery contest at an Indian airport, at Mumbai Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminal 1 (Domestic).

The ‘cook off’ is one element in TFS’ ambitious World Street Food Festival, which runs for three weeks from 15 December, as we reported in recent days. The food festival runs across 13 cities, 250 outlets and 15 TFS lounges.

For the contest, four teams were given ten minutes each to prepare a meal.

TFS said: “Each team was given a pack of ready-to-use ingredients which had freshly cut vegetables, dressing condiments, flavouring toppings and bread slices. The winners were judged on the parameters of creativity and cleanliness. The event was well received by the passengers and was covered in the social media.”

As noted, the TFS World Street Food Festival offers American, Mexican, Chinese and other Asian cuisines.
