The great thing about food events is that it’s all you can eat extravaganza. Whether it’s a workshop where you get to learn how to make something specific or a food festival, there’s a different kind of experience for everyone involved. It’s about spending those few hours with your friends or meeting new people and enjoying something new. On a regular basis, there’s a lot to do in Chennai in a week, but this weekend is filled with a variety of events that you can participate in.
Baking workshops, a workshop to help you understand the best way to make delicious desserts in five minutes or less, a farmer’s market that is in their 6th edition, and of course food festivals from India and beyond. It is, simply put, a culinary journey for your senses. And this is where it begins.
