Jenneys Academy of Tourism and Hotel Management hosts food festival

TIRUCHI: The Feast of Osiris, an Egyptian theme festival, organised by the final year students of the Jenneys Academy of Tourism and Hotel Management here on Wednesday, had all the ingredients to tickle the taste buds of the guests.

Dressed as the pharaohs’ guards, the students served dishes that were a gourmet’s delight. For starters, Egyptian vegetable skew and grilled macral with semolina in lemon sauce were served. The vegetable skew was made of onion, garlic, pineapple and glazed cherry and the capsicum was skewed and grilled.

Dishes galore

The main course included toasted cashewnut semolina with garlic shrimp, Egyptian vegetable dumplings in minty sauce, Moroccan spice braised chicken with dates and almonds and bambya, an okra stew with meat.

The dessert section had the Egyptian chocolate cake, which had a distinct taste. Egyptian art works adorned the walls and ceilings. Replicas of ancient liquor jars were an eye catcher. The music playing in the background blended well with the mood.

Commenting on the initiative, academy director (technical) M. Ponnilango said the event would give the students good exposure as theme festivals had become a regular feature in hotels.
