“The Only Thing That Is Constant Is Change”. Every industry is going through change and its evolving and I think our food industry isn’t far behind. It too is going through lot of changes and these are good sign for the industry. Our chefs are experimenting a lot and yielding amazing stuff! It is heartwarming that Chefs’ these days get good platform to showcase their culinary skills.
Last year, palate fest was one of such event, where we saw some great stuff by our chefs. Tres presented some exotic dishes and they were amongst few stalls that sold out quickly.
Jatinand Julia of Tres fame need no introduction. They have established themselves as one of the finest European place in town. And I am very sure, that, after running tres successfully, now, like other people they have been thinking – what next? I asked the same question to Jatin and he smiled and said”we have been thinking the same and are looking for some place to start next”. Vidur of Circa 1193fame, coined the idea to use Tonic(bar/lounge in asiad village complex) for 90 days. Julia and Jatin came up this brilliant idea of pop up for 90 days as an experiment. And thus Pop Up emerged and to give it a riiliant start they got Josper – The world’s most celebrated Grill from Spain. I had heard and read a lot about Josper – “A Josper is a hybrid. It is first and foremost a grill but the secret of what it adds to whatever is cooked on it – whether steaks, chicken, fish, vegetables or anything enterprising chefs can turn their hands to – is that it has a front door which, when closed, ensures that none of the natural moisture or flavour escapes.
The Josper is an enclosed charcoal fired grill manufactured using traditional methods and the highest quality materials, aimed at the extremely demanding and professional hotel and catering sector (hotels, restaurants, bars, etc). The “oven grill” is fired by charcoal that is spread across the base, the charcoal burn speed and temperature are controlled using vents below the charcoal and a butterfly vent in the exhaust. The Josper grill allows greater heat control and faster cooking speeds than traditional grill with the addition of fantastic charcoal flavour. The quality and speed of cook are unrivaled by any other equipment on the market at the moment and the enclosed nature of the Josper means that not only the quality of the food is increased but the range of products is increased due to the multiple cooking levels within the cooking chamber”
