A few of the signature culinary gems include Shawarmas, Doner Kebabs, Falafel Wraps, Barbeque selections, French Galette Saucisse, Korean Bap Burgers, Russian Baked Potatoes, Japanese Okonomiyaki Pancakes, Montreal style Bagel Sandwich and?many more along with a lavish main-course and dessert spread. Food hawkers and?food carts are also there for an original street-style experience with a hint of nostalgia through Ice Pops, Pulled Sugar Candies and Candy Floss counters.
We took chef interviews and Q&A sessions to learn about the culinary practices of various countries. The atmosphere at the Food Festival is vibrant and exciting. Guests can sample a variety of cuisines while listening to music.
Ashutosh Bisht, Executive Sous Chef and curator of the festival said, “This food festival is an ode to the street food culture around the world as well as a celebration of our in-house chefs who come with expertise in diverse cuisines across the globe.? Our menu boasts multiple dishes which have gained a cult status in their respective countries of origin. While most of the dishes stay true to their authentic preparations, we have also given inventive twists to a couple of dishes with millets as a star ingredient.”
Shuvendu Banerjee, General Manager said, “As we approach World Tourism Day, we strive to celebrate tourism’s role in inclusive development with this immersive culinary dining experience. With guest delight and loyalty being at the forefront of our hospitality business, we are optimistic about winning hearts with such thoughtful curations.
