At Baraana there was a blind fold food tasting session where we the team members were blindfolded and were given the recipes prepared using palm oil and we had to guess the ingredients with which the recipe was prepared. We quickly mentioned all the ingredients and went to the next spot.
The next spot was The Game situated at the Atria Mall itself which hosted the quiz competition which was also on the palm oil which everyone just enjoyed playing. And finally it was time for the last spot.
The last spot was the Light House Cafe situated at worli itself which hosted the salad making session where we were provided several ingredients and we the team had to prepare salad using 5 ingredients and of course Palm oil which the judges liked too much and appreciated.
