Mexifornia Food Festival

1850s… those were the years when French army was on a conquering spree. However on 5th May 1865 the ‘well equipped and armed’ French army tasted defeat in the hands of Mexican army near the city of Puebla. Later the French reorganized themselves and won but that one victory was an inspirational event for Mexicans. The day every year is celebrated as “Battle of Puebla Day” or “Battle of Cinco de Mayo”… went on the Chef Kuldeep at California Pizza Kitchen, Indiranagar, Bengaluru. The CPK chain of restaurants in Bengaluru and Mumbai are celebrating the event with unique food festival Mexifornia from 29th April to 19th May.

Fusion may be a style statement in the field of music or fashion, when it comes to food it is a rich combination of two cuisines and the result is heavenly! This unique concept has been well expressed through this food festival. We, a bunch of bloggers, were invited to take a sneak peek at what was coming. We found Chef Kuldeep and his team mixing up a perfect blend of the flavors that will leave you asking for more. Each dish whether elaborate or simple was being prepared with care. CPK is presenting complete three weeks of Mexifornia Food Festival where you can taste the fusion of Mexican and Californian flavors.
