A delicious afternoon with The Dancing Chef


While the world was getting ready for the festive season, we decided to learn some tricks ourselves from the Dancing Chef himself, Mr Harpal Singh Sokhi. Take a look at the awesome afternoon that unfolded!

1. Enter his magical place of work. It’s not just a kitchen, it’s a canvas!


2. And here is the man who works beautifully on this canvas—Chef Harpal Singh Sokhi!

3. From neighbours to colleagues, sweets make Diwali celebrations and gifting complete. And so, Chef Harpal Singh came to the rescue by making a wonderful sweet dish—Date Truffles.

9. Half cup of grated coconut added for the nutritious touch! Later, the same was used to roll the round mixture to give a coating.


10. Festivals are a time when we consume lot of dry fruits. Apart from being nutritious, dry fruits are a symbol of prosperity and health. As you can see our Chef is very well aware of that. So he brought in a mix of dry raisins, pistachios and almonds.
