Ushering in Karen Anand's Farmers' Market at Taj Bengal
"Calcuttans are really appreciative of food and have an extremely discerning palate. Also some of the local produce you get here are fantastic. Be it my favourite beckti fish or hilsa, pork or beef and even nolen gur, Calcutta has some of the best produce and boasts of one of the best cuisines in the country. We are hoping that this concept of farmers' market strikes a chord in the hearts of thousands of foodies in the city," says Karen. "This is my first visit to the eastern part of India and I was clueless about what to expect. But it has been going pretty well and I hope to rope in quite a few exhibitors for the event," quips in Sasha, Karen's elder son and event partner. General Manager, Taj Bengal, K. Mohunchandra and Executive Chef Vikas Milhoutra also graced the meet that was organised between Karen Anand and the Kolkata Food Bloggers.
Now if you're someone who doesn't particularly heart cooking but is all for trying out new and exciting stuff to eat, there's no need to be disappointed. An interesting variety of pop-up restaurants will be geared to tickle your tastebuds with diverse dishes and cuisines...from Chicago Pizza to a Laksa counter, from a Ravioli Bar to Mexican and Asian street food, from Mezze to Petit fours.
But as of now, see you at Taj Bengal on the 16th of November from 11 am to 7 pm. It's going to be an experience you'd surely not want to miss!
