VR Bengaluru, India’s only integrated lifestyle destination, is all set to host Season 3 of its immensely popular series—World on a Plate—produced by Gold Rush Entertainment. Scheduled between June 8th and 10th 2018, the stage will host stalwarts including Masterchefs George Calombaris, Sarah Todd and Ranveer Brar, who will conduct exclusive fine dine master classes and tete-e-tetes with budding professionals. In continuation with its philosophy of Connecting Communities©, The Black box on Whitefield Road has planned a weekend of interesting curated events to thank patrons who have chosen VRB to celebrate many an occasion over the past two years.
Culinary expert and chef Saransh Goila will kick-start World on a Plate Season 3 on June 8th with a demonstration of his signature Goila butter chicken, the best butter chicken in the world as Calombaris calls it. Patrons can savour the epic dish at VR Bengaluru, or from the comfort of their home by ordering it via Uber Eats.
In addition to this, patrons can GiftAMeal with HUG—an initiative to collect funds for the underprivileged, as part of a Hunger Management program—which aims to give away 100,000 meals in 2018.
