Go Cheese Indian Chef Awards 2018, the biggest blockbuster of the culinary world.  An event that will see 1200 Chefs competing across 8 cities and showcasing the skills.  Press conference for event happened at Hotel Sheraton, Whitefield on 7th Sep 2018.  Chef Rohan Parish convened the event and shared all the information.  I could make sense the happiness, as it’s the first of its kind award ceremony.
