Prevention Readers’ Meet in Bangalore
June 9, 2014

The popular health magazine Prevention (India Today Group) had organized a Readers’ Meet last Saturday (June 07, 2014).  The event was held at Carrots, the vegan restaurant in Koramangala.  Supported by Washington Apples, the interactive meet saw about 30 interested readers and food bloggers.  The program began with a short introduction by Sanghamitra Chakraborty, Editorial Director of Prevention & Women’s Health magazines.  This was followed by a brief talk on summer foods by me, which led to an interesting discussion with the audience.  The last part of the event was a demonstration of 2 apple recipes by Carrots Chefs Singraj Gurung and Susmitha Subbaraju.
