Dear Readers,


Three years have flown swiftly and delightfully. It may sound clichéd if we say that each year has added to our own education and experience in serving the purpose of publishing a magazine that aims at celebrating the achievements of a community that has always remained behind the scenes but we mean it and we are justly proud of it as well thanks. Yes, we are referring to our Chefs... the multi talented, enterprising, painstaking, disciplined and caring men and women who have dedicated their working years to raise the country’s hospitality industry to levels on par with the best in the world.

Better Kitchen was conceived as a versatile medium to bring to the fore the entire world of the hospitality industry and its diverse support and sustenance arms. It was a new platform and we were rewarded in the first year itself by the spontaneous appreciation and cooperation we received gratefully.

As we moved on to the next year we were encouraged to widen our horizon to include more and more aspects and more and more services that deserved attention and credit for contributing to the world wide esteem that India was enjoying as the most preferred tourist destination.

For the Better Kitchen team it has been a wonderful 3 years.

Hospitality Purchasing Managers Forum (HPMF) felicitated eight war veterans, who made sacrifices for the motherland - India, during their Eighth Anniversary and HPMF Convention and Awards 2018 held at Varanasi. The theme of the event was Swach, Saksham and Samrudh to ensure cleanliness, competence and cooperation. Better Kitchen was media partner for the event.

Recently, Better Kitchen organized a novel two-days event, Everest Culinary Challenge 2018 with the theme of “Flavours of India” at Sheila Raheja Institute of Hotel Management. 18 teams from 15 hospitality colleges based in Mumbai and nearby areas participated in the challenge. We are poised for bigger challenges this year and we at Better Kitchen look forward to to another successful year.

Enjoy reading Better Kitchen.
