Recently I got the opportunity to attend Palm Oil Gourmet Delights Event organized by Malaysian Palm Oil Council(MPOC) @thinkpalmoil
, Connaught Place, where we were briefed about the uses and importance of Palm Oil through various video clips, by @bhavna_vyas_shah
, Country Representative of Malaysian Palm Oil Council (for India and Sri Lanka). Palm oil is an edible vegetable oil, derived from the reddish pulp of the fruit of the oil palms. It has a balanced fatty acid composition, between its saturated and unsaturated fatty acids, and high content of vitamin E. It is used in many food products, such as margarine, confectionery, chocolate, ice cream and bakery products. It is also widely used in non-food products such as soap, candles, and cosmetics.
After the awareness session was the time for the Food Hunt. We were divided into groups of 5-6 members each & were handed over the clue cards, using which we had to decode the name of the venues, where certain activities were lined up for us.
The first venue decoded was @pandeypaan
. We headed there, ate some scrumptious paan which had cashews fried in Palm oil. We got our second clue, which led us to @mybarheadquarters
, where we received a task of making Salad. Our next clue card led us to @punjabibynature2.0
, where we were handed a questionnaire about Palm Oil to fill up. Our last clue took us back to @ardor2.1
, where we were blindfolded to taste & identify the dish that was served to us, and had to write the list of ingredients used in making the dish. (the dish was cooked in Palm Oil). It was super fun.
At last, we all had lunch together at @ardor2.1
, where we were served some really mouth watering dishes.
Overall, this event was planned perfectly, and we learned many things about palm oil, which we didn't know before.
