Greetings from the IHM Alumni Golden Cat Mad Fest organizing committee

As you might be aware, our IHM Chennai is celebrating its Golden Jubilee this year (1963 – 2013) and we take immense pleasure in bringing you the program to celebrate this milestone. It has been finalized to have a grand gala celebration to mark this historic occasion on the 16th of August 2013.This date was fixed, taking into account the convenience of the MADCATS who are spread across the globe. It happens to be summer holidays for MADCATS from the US, UK, Europe, Middle East and Australia. It also happens to be a holiday on 15th August (Independence Day) and if people take a day off on 16th, they get a long weekend.

The event commences at 10 am and as alumni’s, we should all gather at the institute and have a small function to felicitate and honor the current and retired staff (both teaching and admin) over the last 50 years. It is also proposed to honor the first batch of pass outs (1966) with a memento.

Following this, we are looking to have a few seminar / workshops /demonstrations for the current students as well as recent passed out alumni’s, wherein the stalwarts of the industry will demonstrate their skills and knowledge. It has been proposed to have a cookery demonstration by a Michelin starred Chef, appreciation of single malt whiskies from an expert, a friendly MAD COOKOUT between 2 highly acclaimed chefs from the industry as well as other forums and speeches.

We will also be asking the leading suppliers to the hospitality industry to put up their stalls around the campus, wherein there would be displays from kitchen equipment manufacturers, F&B suppliers, uniform and housekeeping vendors etc.

This will be followed by lunch that has been kindly sponsored by the institute (bringing back old memories of the QTK “common lunch”!!!). People can take a nostalgic trip down to “Kanagam”, if they so desire (although it Is no longer a small quaint village with just a couple of tea stalls!!)

We shall adjourn for the afternoon around 3 pm and re assemble at 630 pm in Sheraton Park Hotel & Towers for an evening filled with fun, food and frolic!! There will be a nostalgic musical trip down into the 70’s, 80’s and 90’s followed by a grand cocktail dinner (with a fully stocked bar!!). The evening will be spent reminiscing the old days and we shall wind up by around 11pm.

We have added a few gadgets below to help the busy Hotelier.
