The India office of ProChile, the agency of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Chile, which promotes export of Chilean goods and services and whose role is to boost commercial relationship between Chile and India hosted a one-of-a-kind event titled Unboxing Chile recently.

 The main objective of #UnboxingChile, was to offer to India a box full of diverse experiences, opening which, will trigger the senses of Indian consumer into experiencing the culture, scenic beauties, colors, and aromas.  In turn they get to feel the spirit of Chile, its warmth, all the beautiful places that Chile can show and the identity of the Chilean people stamped in their products. 

The event that was hosted at Hotel Leela in Gurugram saw the participation of leading Indian food, travel and lifestyle writers, influencers and enthusiasts. The five course meal presented on the beautiful occasion was marked by the flavours that Chile produces. It included the Chilean sea bass beautifully presented as the main dish as well as Puglia Burrata as the anti-pasti and pasta with delicious butternut squash ravoilo paired with Chilean wines. 

Speaking on the occasion, , remarked that “Chile and India share a tremendous relationship that is based on shared values. Economic partnership between the two countries continues to grow and food is a very important part of this. Indians are slowly getting a taste of Chilean foods and are beginning to appreciate the quality that Chilean produce brings." 

Marcela Alejandra Zuñiga Alegria, Trade Commissioner of ProChile in India said that the goal of ProChile is to bring Chile closer to India and improve the visibility of Chile, as country, supplier and partner. ProChile is a nonprofit entity, whose main objective is to improve bilateral trade between both countries. UnboxingChile is an international campaign that comes alive tonight in India and provides an incredible opportunity to know and connect with Chile, its flavors and its people.

The Chilean products showcased at the event were fresh produce like kiwifruit, cherries, blueberries and apples and dry fruit like Walnuts. Chilean wines were also showcased. Unboxing Chile also exhibited tourism possibilities in Chile.

The evening was thoroughly enjoyed by those present and the Chefs at Leela under the leadership of their Executive Chef Ashish Bhasin put out the extensive menu featuring Chilean fruits and dry fruits. An activity of know Chile and win some prizes turned out to be enjoyable and fun.

It truly was an opportunity to get to know Chile and its wonderful bounty through #UnboxingChile 

Out of the many highlights of the evening the "roomful of desserts" turned out to be quite a showstopper as beautiful desserts were presented to the guests for as they say there is always room for desserts.
