There is ‘food’ news for the students of Hansraj College. The college now has a society for the foodies – Culinary Arts Society (CAS), the very first of its kind in Delhi University (DU).
Founded by two second year B. Com students, namely Aseem Jain and Ananya Gupta, the society is for those who have a keen interest in food critiquing, food blogging or even just plain hogging.

About why they started the society, Jain shares that the idea was to bring together the foodies of the college. He says, “Food is no longer about the normal ghar ka khaana, it has become much more than that. Innovations such as molecular cooking, new quirky cafes, and amazing presentation – food industry has evolved drastically. Before starting the society, we did a survey among the college students and most showed interest in various aspects of food. Some wanted to get into food blogging, food critiquing, hotel management and others were just foodies. So we thought, why not?”
