The Italian food festival at the Grand Sarovar Premiere

Well Mumbaikars now have a strong Italian connection too thanks to the lip smacking ten day Italian food festival at the Grand Sarovar Premiere, Goregaon which drew an overwhelming response on the opening night.  Mumbaikars from all walks of life made a beeline to the 180 degrees restaurant to dig into mouthwatering delicacies prepared by Chef Jacopo from Rome (Italy).

Raza Murad was in high spirits enjoying the best of both worlds, Italy on his plate and IPL on the big screen.  Amita Nangia came straight from a shoot and was accompanied by model and actress Alisha Walia. Shraddha was all food this evening as the conversation drifted to Italian man, football and lots more. Viveck Shettyy ensured the humor quotient was high right through the evening with his witty observations.  Celebrity Fitness trainer Vinod Channa who trains the likes of John Abraham and Genelia D’souza was soon mobbed for fitness tips.

Siddharth Kak was accompanied by his wife Geeta.  Ajoy Balkrishna, General Manager, The Grand Sarovar Premiere ensured his guests were well attended to. Manju Lamba, painter and mother of actress Minissha Lamba more than agreed that cooking was also a fine art.  Gary Richardson was in his elements and feasted on the dessert counter. Manmeet Gulzar had his little daughter in tow along with his wife Karishma, who we are told is a great lover of Italian food. A sumptuous buffet treat from the exotic land of Italy saw a lot more than the traditional tiramisu, and included Minestrone, cocktail di scampi, risotto milanese.
