Cuisinart 2018

Press Release
03/08/2018

Calcutta Club USA  (www.calcuttaclubusa.com) is organizing Cuisinart 2018, a unique fusion of a South Asian live culinary contest and a parallel Asian art exhibition on Sat, March 17th at Maynard Elks Lodge in Maynard from 12 - 5 PM. Now in its third year, CuisinArt is New England’s only Indian live culinary contest that is uniquely presented within a collage of art and musical performance.


Cuisinart synchronizes food and art to encourage rising artists to showcase an Asian themed portfolio of paintings and drawings to Boston art aficionados as well as for creative non-professional cooks to prepare vintage South Asian delicacies within 30 minutes and impress discerning judges. Last year, Indian Consul General Riva Ganguly Das was the chief guest at the event. Visitors can attend this event for free with prior registration online at

A highly innovative experiment last year was Live Art, where two artists painted complete canvases to the accompaniment of a 30 minutes dance session. These paintings were then auctioned to the audience for charity and the proceeds entirely donated, through Acton Boxboro High School ASHA group to Prerna Girls School in Lucknow. The funds supported education for 6 girls for one year. We will repeat Live Art in CuisinArt 2018, through with a different musical flavor.


Much of the exhibit artwork at Cuisinart had not been publicly displayed in Massachusetts earlier, providing a premium opportunity for collectors and  galleries to acquire some unique Asian art specimens. You will have a chance  to stroll through the works and chat with the artists in person. Then walk over to the other side and check out the live cooking rounds by people you know. You can participate as a chef as well by contacting Calcutta Club USA at 508.740.7848 or visiting
www.calcuttaclubusa.com. All the cooking will surely make everyone hungry; Masala Art of Needham is our exclusive food vendor and will provide visitors with an excellent lunch offer.


The free event is supported by several businesses including Urban Public Companies, our gold sponsor, as well as Masala Art, Bollywood Grill and several others. Last year, there were more than 300 attendees at CuisinArt.


Established in 2015, Calcutta Club USA is well recognized for presenting innovative public events such as the annual Sanskriti Literary Festival and the Caleidoscope Film Festival.
