Interesting Trivia: The kiwifruit, native to northern China, was first brought to and cultivated in New Zealand in the 20th century and was then known as the Chinese Gooseberry.
I was invited by Sofitel Mumbai BKC and Zespri International, the world’s largest kiwifruit marketer to their event where talented chefs created innovative dishes paired up with the flavour this season!
The Kiwifruit has a tangy yet juicy taste combination that is refreshing yet mildly sweet. The menu ranged from exquisite beverages, appetizers, mains and deserts.
I loved the Kiwi Mania cocktail that had a tangy twist to it. All the preparations were delectable. I did not imagine that Kiwifruit can be added to many food recipes. What appealed to me the most is the fact that Kiwifruit has the highest nutrient adequacy. Talk about eating a yummy dish and saving on calories too.
Here are a few images of the dishes that I tried.
I have always enjoyed Kiwifruit, but have never realised its nutritional value. Kiwifruit can be dynamically used to make many food preparations. I am sharing this recipe of Kiwi Roll that was shared with me by the PR team.
