Food Lovers Club, which is run by Kripal Amanna, publisher and editor of the popular magazine Food Lovers Bangalore, conducted a healthy foods workshop called Active Foods last Saturday (Dec 11, 2010), which ran full-house.
The workshop started with an interactive session on Weight Management (conducted by yours truly), followed by a cookery demonstration of healthy dishes (conducted by Naren Thimmiah, Executive Chef of Gateway Hotel, Bangalore) and ended with a healthy lunch prepared by the hotel chefs.
Here's a recipe from the booklet that was given to the workshop participants...
