Little Hearts School organises contest on International Women�s Day
Jamshedpur: On the occasion of International Women�s Day, Little Hearts School, Bistupur organised a healthy cooking contest for the mothers whose kids study at the school. The contest was themed around �No fire No bake� cooking contest. The participants came up with wide variety of desserts and snacks.
�We have been promoting healthy eating habits among our students and today we gave platform to the mothers to show their skills in cooking healthy food. We are overwhelmed with the response. The contest not only helped the participants to showcase their skills but also promote the cause of healthy eating,� said RubinaBodhanwala, principal, Little Hearts School.
She noted that the contest also emphasised that cooking is not a daily chore but is all about dedication, knowledge, patience and expertise. She added that the search for wellness through eating healthy is what has sparked so much interest in food over the past few years.
The contest was judged by Swati Chakravorty, general manager, Hotel Sonnet. She judged each dish on various parameters, including skill, technique and style. She also appreciated the school for organising the event and said that healthy food is the need of the hour.
The women from different walks of life showcased their talent with their delicious dishes which they prepared at the school campus. In the contest, the first prize went to Energy Balls in Desert category and Fusion Chart was winner in Snacks category.
City-based philanthropist, DivyaTaneja also appreciated the initiative and said that our city is known for serving quality food and the contest was the best way to connect with people having passion for cooking.
�Food has become important in our lives. Cooking skills of Indians are unique and complement their stories and experiences. Best way to appreciate their talent is to showcase their adventure in every dish and task which were assigned to them,� said Taneja.
�Those who took part in the competition had to practise and think outside the box. The contest also gave an opportunity to the women to interact with each other and see the new ideas they came up with, which we otherwise would not have had. The participants showcased new ways of working with elements and materials. They combined flavours and experimented with presentation,� said Dolly Upadhyay, teacher, Little Hearts School.
