Karamat India, a global food supplier and serving India with delicious and quality products and Indian Culinary Forum understands the significant challenges that Covid19 has forced on individuals, families, and businesses. This competition is about showing that there are endless possibilities, and we can still do things that we enjoy, and at the same time ensure that we keep communicating with one another through digital platforms and stay connected.

This event is for India's Chefs at home (professional) and they will be able to showcase and display their skills towards creating dishes with Karamat convenience food to the world from their very own kitchen. Unusually there will be NO tasting in this competition, but the judges will be specifically looking at the technique, passion, knowledge of the product, presentation, dressing and plating skills, to determine the finalists and the winner. There will also be 10% weightage to the candidate’s video based on views, likes, and comments. 10% of the weightage will be given to likes on that customer’s post.
