They are India’s young men and women with ambitions but without any support to realise their dreams. Now, they will have a chance to engage with nine world class Michelin starred and celebrity chefs in New Delhi, thanks to The Creative Services Support Group (CSSG), a registered charity established to aid under privileged young adults through skills training and mentorship within the creative sectors.

CSSG’s main focus lies in India’s burgeoning creative sectors such as art, theatre, music, dance, gastronomy etc. It believes in the importance of the creative arts in reflecting and influencing positive societal change. CSSG has regularly hosted and curated such events in order to spread awareness to help underprivileged young adults. Its 2013 summit – food and art edition will be launched in October, bringing to India famous chefs Frances Atkins of The Yorke Arms, Patley Bridge, North Yorkshire (Michelin starred); Mark Best, Marque, Sydney (Hatted); Alyn Williams, Alyn Williams at The Westbury, London (Michelin starred); Laurie Gear, The Ar tichoke, Amersham, Buckinghamshire (Michelin starred – upcoming Chef) and others. On October 1, the chefs will visit schools and conduct a master class with the students in Delhi.
