IFCA asks gov’t to promote culinary tourism in India


The Indian Federation of Culinary Associations (IFCA) wants the government to initiate drastic measures to promote culinary tourism in India in the proposed new tourism policy said President of IFCA, Chef Manjit Singh Gill speaking at the curtain raiser of the sixth IFCA International Chefs Conference in Chennai.

The new Tourism policy will be announced on May 15. It will replace the old tourism policy of 2002. Gill said that IFCA made valuable recommendations to popularize Indian cuisines across the globe. Gill said that India had not been able to communicate its traditions and heritage to the world despite evolved culinary tradition.

He applauded the recent initiative of the government to set up Indian Culinary Institutes saying that the same will help in research and development activities related to Indian food.

International speakers from countries such as USA, Ireland, Saudi Arabia, Japan, Singapore, UK, will be deliberating on many topics at the three-day conference. There will be cookery demonstrations and live cooking sessions during the conference.
