What is A.W.E.D ? Do I mean awed – to be inspired by the sheer beauty of what you see? Or do I mean it as an acronym for “A Worldly Epicurean’s Delight” ? Well its both. The fact that cultures beyond one’s boundaries and their habits concentrating esp with the universal factor Food is mind boggling enough to be AWED by every epicurean.

Any lover of Food would surely agree with me that more the borders crossed, more the essence of food is realized. That being said, my motive in starting this event was exactly that – Go beyond my comfort level, get to know more about regions unknown and far away but which I believed will be bought closer to me by the magnitude of so many people involved from all corners of the world. The variety, the new ingredients, a new methodology which I have been introduced to through this event so far has been impressive to say the least. To get a gist of what I am talking about, take this journey so far of the countries we have traveled and conquered together.

A.W.E.D goes into new adobe every month now where creative chef’s will handle it in their own unique way. Check out new Avatar’s of new hosts for the coming months
