Cyrus Todiwala Announces Sale of Tickets for Zest Quest Asia 2020 Gala Dinner and Awards Night

Cyrus Todiwala OBE DL has announced that tickets have gone on sale for the 7th Zest Quest Asia Gala Dinner and Awards Night to be held on Friday, 7th February 2020 at the Hilton London Heathrow Airport Terminal 5 (Hilton T5).

Featuring an Asian-inspired canape reception to be prepared by outgoing Zest Quest Asia champions, University of West London, the dinner will feature a multi-course menu with wines prepared by Cyrus and eminent guest chefs.

Earlier in the day, teams from finalist colleges will be competing in a cook-off, helping to fulfil the aims of a competition founded by restaurateurs Cyrus and Pervin Todiwala of Café Spice Namaste and Mr Todiwala’s Kitchen (as well as the soon to open Tandem restaurant in Leicester) with the involvement of Master Chefs of Great Britain. The students, who must have British citizenship or permanent UK residency status, would not only have demonstrated their talent and flair for Asian cookery, but earned the right, as part of their prize, to immerse themselves in Asian cultures and Asian-inspired experiences. To-date, six college teams have gone on to win the Zest Quest Asia crown. The competition is currently open for entries.

Cyrus Todiwala said, ‘I want as many people as possible to save the date for our Zest Quest Asia Gala Dinner and Awards Night, and if possible start booking tickets, for a fantastic evening that will cap our 7th Zest Quest Asia competition. I hope that we will be joined by our friends in the hospitality industry and the education and training sector, as well as participating colleges, parents and everyone interested in cheering on and celebrating ambitious and talented student chefs.

‘Diaries start filling up this time of the year, and we want to make sure that our Zest Quest Asia Gala Dinner and Awards Night is up there among the events no one can afford to miss!’

Zest Quest Asia 2020 enjoys significant support from industry. Confirmed sponsors include Hilton, Cobra Beer, Panasonic, Tilda, Meiko, Regale, Robot Coupe, Glengoyne, and Castelnau.
