Cashew Trail is an annual event that was conceptualized by Park Hyatt Goa Resort and Spa in association with Madame Rosa Distillery in 2012. This event was curated to showcase the legacy of the fruit of Goa – the cashew in its many forms and manifestations to the global audience so as to create another rare and unique Park Hyatt experience.
The highlights of the Cashew Trail 2015 were the exquisite feni master class on 10th April , a prelude the exciting week ahead. The other events included the Cashew Cycling Trail bringing to life the farm to table experience; the feni inspired cocktail competition with Shatbi Basu, a culinary competition for couples, activities for the kids, cocktail masterclass for women, cashew stomping, feni infused cocktails, cashew ritual at the spa, special themed menus and memories of a lifetime.
To conclude the fourth season of the Cashew Trail celebrations, Park Hyatt Goa hosted the annual Cashew Trail brunch on Sunday 19th April 2015 at the Magical Forest. The high-spirited family afternoon was an exciting event with a dedicated kids zone to keep the little ones busy with games, tattoo art, painting and more; a cashew fruit stomping area was also made for the young ones to celebrate the tradition and know more about the legacy of the Goan fruit.
The enthralling afternoon was made even more memorable with an auction for a cause where a limited edition garrafon of feni was auctioned to raise funds for El Sheddai – an association engaged in the welfare of women and children.
Amidst the cashew stomping, sumptuous food and delightful cocktails – there was a cooking competition for couples. An array of delectable food lined the judging table as our participants created magic with cashew and its forms.
The enchanting music by the Latin Connection complimented the aroma of the sumptuous gourmet treats and the flavorful cocktails all through the afternoon. The guests returned home with a goodie bag filled with home-made cashew treats prepared by our chefs and a feni souvenir from the Vaz family.
