There exists a gap currently in authoritative representation for gastronomy at a regional level. S.A.A.G , through our annual Food for Thought Fest aims to fill this space.

The Food For Thought Fest and its related media activities as well as the South Asian Association for Gastronomy are being designed to serve as a:

  • Networking platform for food professionals, policy-makers, scholars and students
  • Consolidator of existing and emerging knowledge of South Asian gastronomy, cooking traditions and culinary heritage
  • Thought leader for the region’s food and hospitality industry
  • Focal point for the region’s gastronomy sector for industry practitioners abroad.

SAAG is a collective of hospitality industry professionals, food scholars and policy influencers from South Asian nations who believe in promoting regional unity through culinary diversity. It is founded by industry insiders with a passion for gastronomy, each with expertise and experience that contribute to the association in distinctive ways.
