Sanjay Khullar, Vice Chairman,Seasons Group said, “The client was very clear on the fact that the guests must not, at any point, be reaching out to the counters, rather we as the caterers were to ensure that all esteemed guests were taken care of with a personal touch.”
Khullar also explained how since the dining area was not too big and a space restriction was there while setting up the live clay oven for the Indian breads. Therefore, Seasons had to device a way to ensure we could serve fresh Naans and Rotis for all our guests along with avoiding any delays or congestion around the area.
Seasons used the concept of Naan and Roti Hawkers, with string baskets around their necks to be on the move through the dining area to ensure each guest was served hot breads.
