Mango Marvel Workshop @ Afraa Deli Salt LakeTuesday, June 16, 2015
Afraa Deli from Outside
Last weekend I attended a workshop organised by Kolkata Food Bloggers(KFB) and Afraa Deli, a cafe at Salt Lake City Center mall. Guess what, the workshop was to celebrate the king of fruit, Mango. Afraa Deli, is a Cafe by Ambuja Neotia group at G block of City Center1. Even though inside space is quite limited, they have outdoor arrangements, which is quite big and the ambiance and inside decor is quite impressive. If you are up for some continental dishes to try, then this place is just ideal. They serve from breakfast till dinner. You will find some continental sandwiches, soups, salads, Italian Pizza and Pasta, Continental desserts, tea, coffee and also cold refreshments in their menu card. The price is quite affordable too. They are quite famous for their breakfast menus I have heard, but I am yet to taste their food. They have another outlet in Salt Lake area, one in City center 2(Rajarhat-New Town) and One in Park Circus area.

As a member of KFB team and a food blogger, I couldn't pass the opportunity to learn some continental Mango delights from Afraa Deli's pastry chef Debopom Sinha. It was a great experience. The chef was a good demonstrator and explained every step with quite elaboration. The participants got the opportunity to try their hands on making the desserts under the guidance of chefs.
Pastry Chef Debopom Sinha is giving demonstrationHe answered all our small queries with great excitement and enthusiasm. The chef taught us three desserts - Mango Pannacota with coconut jelly(an Italian chilled dessert), Chocolate Mango Lava Cake and Red Velvety Mango Mousse cake(a no-bake dessert).
Participants are having hands-on-experience
They made the cook-off arrangements outside on their wooden porch. At first, they served us some cold beverages which has also mango, from their menu. The recipes of all 3 desserts were distributed to all the participants to understand the recipes easily. Ingredients were neatly arranged and the chef with an assistant on his side started showing the steps one by one and he was also showing the results to all of us time to time. He answered all our queries with detailed explanation and cleared our doubts even after the demonstration was ended. After they finished making all 3 desserts, we were served two of the desserts to try and both of them were absolutely delicious in taste and gorgeous by looks.
These Goodies were taught @ the workshop, aren't they look super delicious
So hop over to Afraa Deli if you live in Kolkata and a Mango lover for some sinful mango delights they are serving throughout this month as a part of this Mango Marvel festival. I'll definitely going to go there soon.
