Udupi, Sep 27: Last Saturday was different for a whole lot of beachgoers and also for students, mostly from Manipal University. The intermittent rain throughout the day was no damper as all those who headed to Malpe Beach, where the Centre for Hospitality and Tourism Research and Department of Culinary Arts, WGSHA along with Mantra Travel and Tourism Company organized a Seafood Festival, enjoyed every moment thoroughly. 

“It was a unique experience,” one of the thousand-odd seafood lovers said. He added, “It’s the first time such a fest is happening in Udupi, hope we’ll have more such festivals”. While it was hands-on learning for the students, it was a treat for those who fancy sea food. The aroma of different preparations was inviting the moment you stepped on to the beach. A live band, with students from other institutions of the University, provided the entertainment, and Anjana of WGSHA sang familiar numbers to have the crowd swaying. To complete the perfect setting, was the Arabian Sea in the background. 
The sound of waves lapping against the shores and the cool breeze lifted the spirits for an evening of fun. The students prepared a variety of dishes and each, a gourmet’s delight. Every dish was cooked with a professional touch. Fish and chips with coleslaw, grilled fish with hot dog bread coleslaw and mayonnaise, golden fried prawns with hot garlic sauce, cheese fish chilly combo with friend rice are some of the preparations that were available.  

Prof. Parvadhavardhini Gopalakrishnan, Principal, Welcomgroup Graduate School of Hotel Administration encouraged by the success of the event said, “It’s the first time and am glad the students have done a good job of it. We’ll plan to have more such events”. And event coordinator, Prof. Valsaraj, Head of Department of Hospitality & Tourism management, Manipal University had this to say, “It was an event meant to give the students a hands-on experience in preparing and serving seafood. The students enjoyed it”.

The comments from a few of those who took part in the festival were: “Excellent experience gained in the first of its kind seafood festival in Udupi district.” “Excellent theme, which offered the best food.” “Would like to experience more of this kind of festivals on beach.” “Affordable, delicious food in the candle light dinner setup on the beach”.
