Want a taste of the ‘dum’ style of cooking that is synonymous with Lucknow in our city? Head over to the Square at Novotel Kolkata Hotel & Residences, dig into delicious kebabs and delectable biryanis while mesmerizing Ghazals and enchanting Shayaris play sweet notes for your ears and soul!
I was invited by Novotel for an interaction with chef Abid Qureshi who has flown down from Lucknow specially for the festival and to enjoy his food. In the chef’s words “My menu is rooted in rich royal heritage of India and is a combination of subtle taste where flavors are as varied as India’s climate and as exotic as India’s royal culinary heritage“. Recreating the magic of the spices, Abid Qureshi has carefully handpicked spices and flavors often used in the kitchen of royal families.
