  • A celebration is all about creating memories

 You get back home from a party, marriage reception or a banquet, what’s the first question your mom asks you? “How was the food?” The reason being, great memories are created amidst great food.


  • A food for every occasion 

India is a country that celebrates diversity like no other nation in the world. The reason why it is also home to the most number of foodies. In India there is a delicacy for every festival, be it Modaks for Ganesh Chaturti, Pongal for Til Laddoo, Moong Dal Bhajiya for Navrathri, or the famous Chole Bature for Baisakhi, we have it all. Getting hungry already?


  • A claim to fame 

“Dude, have you tried the Koliwada Fish Fry at Mini Punjab?”

All groups have that one guy who boasts of having been to all the eateries a city has to offer. Why?

Because food generates curiosity like nothing else does and a festival is no different…


  • Talk food and you have all ears 

All discussions regarding food are the most interesting and the most remembered. Why?

  • The Sixth Sense? 

The mind associates festivals with the food that’s served along with it, because it caters to all the five senses at the same time. Remember the Kaju-Katlis and Motichoor Laddoos you had on Diwali?
