Chefs Cooking Up Special Indian Dish For Charity
Toronto: Arvinda & Preena Chauhan of Arvinda’s will be one of sixty chefs serving up (On October 16, at Roy Thompson Hall) mouth-watering appetizers and desserts at Eat To The Beat — Willow Breast Cancer Support Canada’s premium fundraising gala event of the year.
Arvinda and Preena have participated in this event since its conception. Now in its 17th year, Arvinda and Preena strive to creatively put together an Indian-themed appetizer that is bite-sized, upscale, preferably vegetarian, healthy and delicious. They have served everything from Pani Puri; Pathra—a Gujarati specialty of colacasia leaf spirals with a chick pea paste filling; Butter Chicken nested in Crispy Naan Cups, Pav Bhaji on Garlic Crostini just to name a few.
Arvinda says, “When we were invited to participate in the first Eat to the Beat at Casa Loma, we were so honoured to be a part of a fundraiser that supports Willow, an amazing organization that support women through their struggle with breast cancer. Some of our closest friends were lost to cancer, making it our commitment to support this wonderful organization.”
“It’s wonderful to see this event flourish with each successive year, drawing significant attention to Willow as an organization. Every year, we continue to feel honoured to be a part of ETTB and empowered by the positive energy and good feelings it brings us, Preena says.
Preena Chauhan is a cooking instructor specializing in Indian cuisine through her mother’s cooking school Arvinda’s Indian Cooking Classes. She is co-owner of Arvinda’s Artisanal Spice Blends for Indian cooking along with her brother Paresh, which they launched in 2006 for the retail and foodservice market.
