The annual Gala Buffet approached and as always Culinary Academy of India spear-headed into work in excitement. But this year was very special,this year the academy decided to do the unthinkable and made a WORLD RECORD!! The World's Longest Platter required extensive and detailed planning for over a month covering each aspect in-depth. Students were divided among kitchens and assigned specific tasks. Work started in Kohinoor Hall - 1 to hold the colossal platter. Sheet canvass were put up on walls, a sturdy skeleton frame for the platter was made to support the enormous weight. Chef Sudhakar N Rao then showed the map that was planned for the platter. Involving the student the whole map was then recreated and copied on to the platter's framework. The work at hand was well divided and well coordinated. The continental team started to work on the processing of meat while the pastry and bakery teams started work on the chocolate and bread sculptures respectively. Meanwhile the decorations and Styrofoam sculptures were brought in for decoration and the place started to take form. Well coordinated teams of continental and Garde manger worked day-in and day-out to prepare the huge variety of dishes within due time.
