For over three years, the Häfele Supermom initiative has served as an inspiration to women across India to innovate and introduce recipes that find a perfect blend of taste and health. This year, the challenge for participating supermoms was to use only certain superfoods and create unconventional healthy dishes that would not only taste good but look good as well to appeal to the young ones.
The competition came to its final leg on 27th August 2019 where ten-finalist from across India, shortlisted from over 2500 entries by a panel of renowned influencers and bloggers, competed for the title of ‘Häfele Appliance Supermom’. Judged and supervised by Australian MasterChef Winner Sashi Cheliah, the finalists were given yoghurt as a secret ingredient (revealed at the competition) which was to be used alongside other ingredients and premium Häfele appliances to prepare their final dish. Food Critic Kunal Vijaykar set a vibrant tone for the day as he effortlessly anchored the entire competition while sharing his expertise and experience in foods with the audience.
As the morning slid into afternoon in the culturally enriched interiors of Mukesh Mills, the day reached closer to revealing the three winners of Häfele Supermom 2019. Of the ten finalists, Sashi Cheliah crowned – 1. Divya Jain (Ragi Brownie with raspberry cheesecake, hazelnut crumble, raspberry coulis with toile) 2. Neelam Agarwal (hung yogurt stuffed crispy potsticker), and 3. Surbhi Bhandari (Govind gatta with lachha paratha, cucumber and mint buttermilk) as the winners who received Häfele’s latest range of products including a double-door refrigerator, a washer-dryer, and an all-in-one kitchen machine. As he felicitated the winners, he said, “The Supermoms, coming in from a variety of regions across India, brought it a lot of incredible flavours and tastes. It was a wonderful experience to witness these amazing women take up the challenge with such spirit and bring out their best.” Later, Sashi enthralled the audience with his cooking skills as he conducted a masterclass demonstrating live preparation of his version of a unique Spanish dish called Paella made from chicken & shrimp.
