Dining with the Maharajas at Dilli 32

As much as I love attending food festivals across various hotels in Delhi, I simply love the ones that are done at Leela Ambience Convention Hotel. They are simply the best at the food festivals on offer in Delhi, and are not to be missed at all!

The latest in their offering is the ‘Dining with the Maharajas’ series where you will get a taste of royalty from all parts of India right in your city. The first pit stop on the ‘Dining with the Maharajas’ journey is Mahmoodabad, situated in the heart of the holy city of Sitapur. To bring out the authentic flavors of each dish, Chef de Cuisine Ashwani Kumar Singh himself travelled to the city to learn the art of recreating the royal dishes.

The old-world charm and subtle balance of flavors that is associated with authentic dishes, and the numerous stories that the chefs and food enthusiasts come up with in relation to a particular dish is what makes a dish more interesting, apart from the very obvious factor- taste. Each person has a story to tell when it comes to such food, and a memory attached with it, be it that of travel or having had that dish on a special occassion. Sitting with foodies, gorging on authentic, centuries-old recipes which have been passed down from one generation to another, and listening to all these stories was the order of the day yesterday, when I was invited to the Jashn-e-Awadh food festival being held at ‘Paatra’ at Japyee Greens Golf & Spa Resort, Greater Noida.
