Bread & Butter: What's on the table?
Most food events are focused around those there to eat, and others there to feed. We’re turning tables and focusing on creating a communal space that’s not just for chefs and cooking, but for everyone interested in sharing, learning, collaborating and networking within and outside the food industry.
What we want is to bring together food lovers and food specialists, foodpreneurs and food financiers, to share their insights, challenge established practises and propose solutions for this burgeoning industry ripe for transformation. Bread & Butter is about whetting minds and appetites, while innovating plates and palates.
The day long event will include stories, talks and panels by budding enthusiasts and seasoned experts; accompanied by meals and experiences crafted by curators. An exclusive ‘clients & collaborators fair’ for you to discover food packaging + design experts, food content creators + digital marketers, food writers + technologists, food photographers + stylists, new food startups and more.

About Bombay Duck Brewing:
Pooja is a foodpreneur who has a special love for flavour and ingredients, she is well versed with indian ingredients and is also one half of Meraki; a pop up store that pays homage to the food of the hills. Abhishek is an engineer who turned beer making from a hobby to a company. He started home brewing in Texas, and came back to build a microbrewery to share the love of Indian flavours, one ale at a time. Bombay Duck Brewing is a brew lab that encourages experimentation, they put together flavours that compliment each other while practicing wabi-sabi; appreciating the imperfect authenticities of ingredients.
Have you ever wondered where beer comes from & what it’s made of? Is Ale just another synonym for beer in the parlance of the beverage world? How are microbreweries different from Macro ones?
The workshop will start with a fun round of blind tasting and talking about the 4 main elements that make beer accompanied by an easy sensory analysis of the ingredients. You will also get a chance to do a small tasting of the new BDB beers! Listen to stories about style origins, monks who brew excellent beer and talk yeast and malts with Abhishek (Chinsi). Pick his brains and talk about all things beer.
You will walk away with:
The basics of Craft Beer and how it’s made.
How to pour beer correctly and how to store it.
How to pair and consume different styles of beers (There’s a method to the madness!)
