It was an usual Tuesday evening till I reached Vivanta by Taj to attend an event organized by Philips India along with brand ambassador Chef Ranveer Brar and famed Fitness Diva Shwetambari Shetty of Cult.Fit. The event was to celebrate Healthy Living with the use of innovative gadgets designed by Philips India, a brand which has been at the forefront of Indian cooking for time immemorial.
While I was told this would be an event like no other, I was very glad to see that Philips India had taken the excellent initiative of roping in Ms.Shetty who is known for her fitness regimes. It was an excellent initiative by Philips India to reach out to those who have been a part of an unhealthy lifestyle due to various reasons such as hectic schedules at work thereby falling prey to untimely and unhealthy meals.
The evening began with a quick introduction on Philips India by the Sr. Director, Marketing and Business Head of Domestic Appliances, Mr.Gulbahar Taurani who stressed the importance of nourishing and nutritious food in our daily life. Talking about the event, Mr. Taurani said, “With lifestyles becoming faster, it’s imperative that our eating habits evolve too. The need for nourishment often takes over the want for delicious dishes we would otherwise choose to have. We at Philips understand what food means to you, we listen to what you have to say, we understand you – the new age consumer who likes to be fit, in-shape, robust and in control of their health. This is why we bring to you products to satisfy your kitchen needs with products that are exactly suited to your need to remain healthy without compromising on taste.”
Chef Ranveer Brar, a name which needs no introduction and was welcomed on stage by one and all with heartfelt applause and cheer. He stressed the importance on delivering nutrition in daily meals, in the prevailing fast paced lifestyle applauding the steps Philips has made in the world healthier and more sustainable through innovation.
Famous for representing Indian food across the globe, Mr. Ranveer Brar, Celeb Chef and Brand Ambassador, Philips Kitchen Appliances said, “I am happy to be associated with Philips ‘Healthy Living Portfolio’ which can make scrumptious food a part of your routine while keeping your health and food nutrition in check. I’ve always believed that eating healthy is essential in this day and age, to keep up with the hectic life all of us lead; therefore my focus has remained on creating delectable treats which are not compromised on nutrition. Philips Kitchen Appliances are the perfect addition to any Kitchen. So bring these kitchen wonders to your home as the season of fried foods and sweets knocks and win your guests and family over”.
It was a delight to listen to Bangalore’s very own Zumba expert Shwetambari Shetty on how to stay fit without following the crazy and unnecessary diet fads instead focussing on changing our poor lifestyle habits. She maintained that “Good food not only nourishes our body but also our soul. A combination of a healthy diet and physical workout helps you feel good overall on most of the days. Philips Kitchen Appliances offer a range of intelligent devices that make working in the kitchen faster and give you the freedom to enjoy food without the guilt. It reflects the years of work and research that Philips has put in the culinary world”.
Chef Ranveer in between the friendly banter with Ms.Shetty and engaging with the audience also whipped up some tasty nibbles and healthy juices such as Fried Idli Chaat, Chettinad Fish Fingers, White Chocolate Brownie and Green Belt juice using the Philips Airfryer, New Viva Collection Masticating Juicer and Mixer Grinder.
The event was a surefire success with Philips India aim to promote Healthy Living and to demonstrate how anyone and everyone, even those strapped for time can make healthy, nutritious yet delicious meal similar to our regular meals.
