Our latest Google Hangout had chef Manish Mehrotra of Delhi’s award-winning restaurant, Indian Accent, food stylist, photographer and chef Michael Swamy and executive chef of Taj Lands End’s Anirudhya Roy talk about presenting Indian food in a fine dining space.
This time, Adda with Kalyan hosted by IFN’s editor-at-large, Kalyan Karmakar focused on the challenges of serving desi food at a five-star or fine dining restaurant. While chef Anirudhya Roy believes that food is all about bringing experiences to the table, it is also something that triggers memories.
