Bengaluru, 12 February 2020: Tennis players Deny Molchanov, Hseih Cheng-Peng and Vishnu Vardhan who are participating in this year’s Bengaluru Tennis Open, donned the chef’s hat today at Radisson Blu Atria.
The players went on a culinary tour, exploring India’s secret recipes and cooking techniques. Ukraine’s Deny Molchanov and Taiwan’s Hseih Cheng-Peng, along with India’s very own Vishnu Vardhan whipped up some fusion favourites– Ragi gnocchi and Salmon Cartoceio while learning about India’s long connection with food.
Cheng-Peng, drawing parallels between Indian and Taiwanese cuisines, said he was not a stranger to the spiciness Indian food has to offer. Deny Molchanov’s love for Italian food had him cooking up some pasta. “I love to cook at home for my wife and kids, but time is a huge constraint when you are a sportsperson,” said the Ukrainian.
Watching Hseih Cheng-Peng effortlessly working through the pans and spoons, and landing the “Salt Bae” moment, Vishnu Vardhan jokingly concluded, “It definitely looks like Cheng-Peng has a bright future in the art of cooking.”
