The first-of-its-kind event celebrates the resilience of the gastronomic industry during the pandemic, innovation and passion of the chefs to deliver the best dishes to the discerning food-loving clientele in the state irrespective of the scale and size of their outlet. The event was hosted at Novotel Hyderabad Convention Centre, near Hitex, Hyderabad.

The Culinary Carnival 2022 by Telangana Chef’s Association at NHCC attracted a large number of participants as they gathered to witness the best flavours of Telangana. It was a culmination of delicacies representing a multitude of cultures, served by a range of new and some award-winning food vendors, restaurateurs and international chains.

Speaking on the occasion, Manish Dayya, General Manager at Novotel Hyderabad Convention Centre & Hyderabad International Convention Centre said, “We are delighted to host The Culinary Carnival 2022. The F&B industry has witnessed the most challenging times in the last few years due to the pandemic. The Gastronomic Industry and vibrant food culture in the state has helped us tide over the challenging times through innovation, smart thinking and adapting to the change. The culinary carnival is organised at an appropriate time where the best chefs in the state can exchange their experiences and success mantras to further improve the ‘Food Culture’ in the state and offer more variety to the guests in a sustainable way.”

Chef Kailash Gundupalli, Director, Culinary, Novotel Hyderabad Convention Centre & Hyderabad International Convention Centre said, “Hyderabad’s gastronomic industry bounced back the quickest post the pandemic-induced lockdown by quickly adapting to the culture of takeaways and home deliveries. The chefs quickly moved in line with the new requirements of the industry. This has also been a time for great learning and innovation. The Culinary Carnival 2022 is a unique platform where chefs can share their experiences, learnings and adaptations during the pandemic and the business thereafter. I am sure it will be a great enriching, flavourful experience for all the participants.”
