The students and staffs of the food production team prepared different varieties of food using rice and pulses, while those from the carving department produced artistic carvings on vegetables, fruits and dry ice.

The display of different varieties of pizza and colourful sub roll bread by the bakery department added the right blend of flavour and fragrance, a quintessential feature of any culinary campus.
Talking about the festival, R Boomee Naathan, Chairman, Chennais Amirta International Institute of Hotel Management, said, "Holi is an ancient Hindu festival, but it is an inclusive festival which is also known as the festival of spring, colours, and love. Our campus caters to students from all over India. Hence, we make sure that we do not miss out on any festival and tradition that celebrates the goodwill and the culture of the country. Celebrating festivals like Holi also offers an opportunity for us to make our students understand the prominence of food and hospitality in our culture, tradition, and society."
