Eight of Hong Kong’s top Indian Chefs from the likes of CHAAT, Caprice, Chaiwala, Pondi, and more, will be hosting a special “Cook for India” charity dinner at Rosewood’s CHAAT on 7 June, with 100 percent of proceeds going towards Covid-19 relief efforts for India.

Having recently been awarded ‘Top Tables Rising Star 2021’ by SCMP, CHAAT’s own Chef de Cuisine, Manav Tuli, has invited seven sought-after Indian chefs from across the city to cook alongside him in a one-night only charity collaboration dinner. As the Covid-related death toll alarmingly passes the quarter-million mark, CHAAT hopes to bring together the community in an innovative charity concept for a good cause. With 100 percent of proceeds donated directly to UNICEF, together with donations from Rosewood, Hong Kong’s staff, the dinner hopes to provide some relief for the Covid hotspot.

“I want to use our powers and resources to support my country as much as we can. and I believe there is no better way to do this than through the universal language of food.”
