Gourmet pop-up at a lifestyle den
The Curated Plate, a culinary pop-up featuring chefs from Taj Bengal, ITC Sonar, The Oberoi Grand and Swissotel Kolkata Neotia Vista, saw a bunch of foodies gather at the quaint Dover Lane boutique-cum-gallery The Z’s Precinct last month.
Held to raise funds for the weavers and craftsmen who make the tasteful range of apparel, accessories and knick-knacks stocked in the boutique — Zoyah’s Treasury — the pop-up saw the star-hotels put their best foot forward with a delectable range of dishes curated by their top chefs. Sangiovese and Chardonnay by Fratelli Wines and hors d’oeuvres from Moby’s Larder, the in-house kitchen, also kept guests munch-happy. The pop-up was curated by Bikramjit Ray, who has hosted food shows on NDTV Good Times.
“It’s been a hugely successful charity event with proceeds going to craftspersons supported by The Z’s Precinct. The curated menu and Moby’s Larder created this evening that found many more takers than we could accommodate,” said Rajesh Sen, owner, The Z’s Precinct.
