Kolkata Food Festival at Leela



We Bengalis are known for our love for food, it is said “Bengalis don’t eat to live..they live to eat.” I myself have traveled to almost every part of the country and many other countries too but I have never seen another place where they have so many varieties when it comes to eating. It is also said “You’ll never find a cow or any other cattle around a Bengali household as they consume each and every part of the tree be it the fruits, vegetables, leaves, roots, stem or trunks. Be it vegetarian delights or Non vegetarian delicacies, Bengali cuisine has it all. So read more for an exotic journey with fishes, prawns, ducks, mutton, chicken, lots of vegetables and kolkatar Rosogolla n Mishti Doi.


I assume understanding these facts that I have mentioned above, Chef Ashwani Kumar Singh of The Leela Ambaince Convention Hotel, delhi included Kolkata Food Festival as the showstopper of their Grand Trunk Culinary Journey that they hosted at their Dilli 32  restaurant which started from Amritsar, Delhi, Varanasi and now finally reaching Kolkata and will be ending on a sweet Mishti note …..

This is Mamta my Vegetarian Half ….

If you are a Bong(Bengali), Probashi Bangali(Bengalis staying outside Kolkata) or a non Bengali(If you are not a Bengali) you would simply love this food festival and you will get mesmerized the moment you enter as they have designed The City of Joy here with some iconic monuments and stuff that’s totally synonymous to Kolkata. So get ready to get clicked in front of the Howrah Bridge or the Kolkata Tram or Tana rickshaw or Cha wala.
