If there is one thing that makes everything better, it is hands down – good food! And, lucky for us, Goan home cooks now have an opportunity to showcase their cooking skills at Asia’s biggest multidisciplinary arts event, the Serendipity Arts Festival (SAF). which will be held from December 15 to 23 in the city of Panjim.
The event will be part of a collaborative initiative with FIERCE Kitchens, the country’s first culinary incubator.
An initiative by Kamaxi College of Culinary Arts (KCCA) and Atal Incubation Centre at the Goa Institute of Management (AIC GIM), FIERCE Kitchens’ collaboration with SAF 2023 aims to offer home chefs and foodpreneurs an opportunity to showcase their startups and display their culinary prowess and innovative dishes.
Selected to be a part of the diverse food court at SAF 2023, FIERCE Kitchens is excited to showcase talented home cooks and aspiring foodpreneurs from across Goa. The incubator is on the lookout for nine home chefs to run a food stall for the duration of the festival.
“Entrepreneurs can pitch potential investors, enhancing financial prospects. This platform facilitates interaction with customers and mentors, fostering valuable networks among fellow foodpreneurs and collaborators,” said Parixit Pai Fondekar, founder of Kamaxi Group.
Fondekar also emphasised the upskilling opportunities that participating in this initiative will offer home cooks. “Entrepreneurs can create themed products and gain insights into teamwork, competition and marketing. Ultimately, they can generate revenue by selling their unique and innovative food products,” Fondekar said.
The collaboration is a shout-out to home cooks from Goa and is offering a great opportunity for anyone who is interested in promoting local and indigenous produce through their cooking.
