The 4th Annual Awards organized by the FBAI brought together the Culinary Industry of India together on the 10th Dec 2016 at J W Marriott Hotel, Juhu Mumbai to also celebrate #VikhroliCucina Season 3. The #IFBA2016 aims to recognize and celebrate the finest of Food Blogging over the past one year in 15 categories. It is the only such Award ceremony in India. It was the first year #UKFashionablefoodz had applied and got nominations in two categories, The Best General Food blog and the Best Recipe Blog from the hundreds who had applied. Though I did not win the awards, it was indeed an experience to meet some old and new friends from the Culinary world. I was also happy to meet old friend Sujit Patil – VP Corp Communications, Godrej Industries Ltd after almost 3 Decades. We spent a great time interacting about food and Food trends 2017.
