“We have taken the initiative to document the recipes that were standardizedand taught to us byour teachers and wish to share it with all, in the form of thiscoffee table recipe book. A humbletribute to our beloved teachers”.
Batch of 1989-1992, J.D. Birla Institute
An inclination towards home cooked nutritious meals has seen anunprecedented growth during the lockdown phase, in the surge of social mediaand YouTube videos flooding the internet. Perhaps, this has been the best timeto launch a book comprising of a treasure trove of tested and standardized-to-perfection recipes. The alumni association of JDBI is an active body comprisingof over 3000 members, who launched a coffee table book recently. The book titled ‘JDBI Flavours’ was inaugurated by Mrs. SumangalaBirla and finally published on the contribution of 41 patrons from batches 1978to 2014 who generously donated towards the cause. It has been a consummateaffair to be able to curate the best recipes of two veteran teachers of theinstitution, Mrs. Lilu Mancha and Mrs. Mehbooba Mohanty. The recipes are alltried and standardized in the college laboratory. They are not only nutritious andhealthy cuisine, but also delectable and tasty. They are healthy alternatives toour everyday meals, with easily available ingredients sourced from localmarkets. The book promises a new lifestyle modification and has been finallyconceptualized due to the sustained initiatives and enthusiasm of the alumni as atribute to their teachers.
