FabChef (South) – Culinary Workshop at JSHM

FabChef  – South” a culinary workshop was organized by Jindal School of Hotel Management (JSHM). This Cookery workshop was open for outsiders and students of JSHM. The workshop was ideal for those who wanted to master the art of Dakshin delicacies. The participants got to learn six South Indian snacks along with their classical accompaniments.

The chefs Mr Paul & Mr Nattar hail from the southern part on India. Because of this, the class got to learn the authentic way to prepare these items. The participants to got their hand dirty by patting the Kal Adas, dabbing the Oats Idly mix and dipping into the batter of Mysore Bonda. It took many trials and errors for all to perfect the art of pouring Appams.

 

It turned out to be a fun workshop. Everyone went away with a few finger-licking good recipes in their kitty!

Date: 26th February 2019
Venue: Terrace Garden of Jindal School of Hotel Management, Vadodara
Occasion: Sustainable pop-up restaurant “Dholakpur
Hosts: Final year students of 3 year BBA in Hotel & Tourism Management

Third-year students of BBA in Hotel & Tourism Management took up the challenge of creating a commercial pop-up sustainable restaurant for one day. The event was a part of their Gastronomy Course assessment.

The pop-up restaurant was a sellout and an enthralling Culinary experience for all the customers.

The terrace of the college was the venue. The elements that made this pop-up a success were:

1. Sustainable Menu: The vegetables and the herbs were sourced directly from the farmers. No processed food was used; resulting in lesser carbon footprints

2. Wow factor: The decor was traditional and eco-friendly. Homegrown microgreens, earthenware, reusable dry flower arrangements and local linen made the decor truly green without compromising on the rich look & feel.

3. Saving Electricity: The event was lunch in the open terrace. The venue for this sustainable restaurant was tactfully chosen for its natural light & breeze.

4. Attractive Pricing: The entry fee of Rs.200/- made the meals affordable to all. Because of this smart pricing ensured that the pop-up restaurant was a sell-out. The price was all-inclusive for the unlimited meal.

5. The U.S.P: Natural leaf plate and clay glassware gave a unique flavour to the food items. Even the water from the eco wash was reused to water plants. The guests experienced eating with hand. This resulted in the saving of water.

6. Responsibility: Food quantity was carefully planned to reduce wastage. The little bit of leftover was handed over to the needy. All the waste was disposed into the in-house compost bin,

With such responsible students, the future of our planet is in good hands!

5 facts only few people know about hotel star ratings!

From bath fixtures to elaborate lobbies – 5 facts only few people know about hotel star ratings!

In the age of social media, all our decisions are based on ratings and user opinions, but the hotel industry is among the few businesses that have always used ratings and benchmarks to help patrons make their decisions. Now we’re all aware of the star ratings, and some of us even know a thing or two about how these ratings work, but we seldom see how much attention ratings pay to the minutest of details.

Here are five things you probably never knew about star ratings and surely they will make you proud of the benchmarks the hospitality industry pursues!

#1 The 800+ Point Checklist

While star rating criteria differ across the world, a common checklist with over 800 points largely determines what star a hotel property manages to attain. This checklist consists of points to do with the property itself, the facilities, adherence to local laws, and most importantly customer service.

5 trendy but unconventional Hospitality careers

5 trendy but unconventional Hospitality careers where students are acing it!

Until a few years ago, if you enrolled for a degree in hospitality your career choices would be limited to the kitchens, service establishments, or rooms division of a hotel or a resort! Not that it was a bad thing, but it meant running with the herd in an already crowded race.

In a service industry driven by customers spoilt for choice, novelty is a necessary skill. And these trendy unconventional career options prove just how today’s young hospitality professionals are living the dream!

#1. Food  / Hospitality Blogging

With so many dining and accommodation options and a flood of opinions on social media, making the right choice is a confusing task. This is where bloggers save the day, and who better to advise than an industry insider! Many hospitality students are making a foray into blogging and brands are lining up to partner with them to ensure their brands get 5 stars in the minds of audiences that swear by the opinion of these bloggers.
