Sidhu invites international chefs to open Indian Cutlery Institute in Punjab

Amritsar, Oct 12 (UNI) Punjab Local Government, Tourism and Cultural Affairs Minister Navjot Singh Sidhu on Friday inaugurated the ‘World Food Festival’ and ‘Traditional Rasoi Sammelan’ here and invited all the world famous chefs to open an Indian Cutlery Institute in Punjab, to give fillip to the hotel as well as the tourism sector in the state and assured that the state government would extend all possible assistance for the purpose apart from providing land.
Mr Sidhu said that at present the young generation is migrating to the foreign shores by spending over Rs 30 lakhs each leading to not only money drain but brain drain too. He said that if such an institute comes up at either Amritsar or Mohali, then it would pave the way for skill education for the youth thereby not only generating job avenues but would also result in the foreign students coming to India for study.
The Minister while announcing the last installment of Rs 15 crore for the renovation and beautification of the Gobindgarh Fort, said that such buildings are the symbol of great cultural heritage of Punjab and it is our duty to ensure that they are perfectly maintained.
He said that a tender worth Rs 10.76 crore has been issued at townhall for the purpose of building an International Food Street which would commence the operations by March 31, 2020. He also said that the street would have 16 food courts, 2 huge restaurants, Cafeteria, 5 art and craft shops, Exhibition hall and the Conference room.
Appreciating the selection of Amritsar as the venue by the World Culture Culinary Heritage Committee for food festival, Mr Sidhu said that in today’s scenario, the food is not just limited to taste and eating purposes but it has assumed the shape of a big industry today which provides employment to scores of people.
On the occasion, World Chef Association Chairman Thomas Guggler said that such occasions are an attempt to preserve the traditional cuisines and culinary culture and the Indian food holds a place of pride amongst the world cuisines.
