A Tasty Treat


India’s culture and cuisine takes centre stage at the Bollywood-themed “A Week in India” food festival featuring renowned Sydney restaurateur Manjit’s at Café Mix from 23 to 27 November 2016.

Manjit’s chef de cuisine, Varun Gujral, will partner with Shangri-La’s head chef, Bo Sorensen, to take guests on a culinary journey through India’s rich sub-continent. Guests will savour the Old World opulence of northern India’s food, including Butter Chicken (a 1940s Gujral family recipe), the tropical notes of southern India’s PrawnmMalabari (tangy and spice infused) and the traditional flair of central India’s Sikandari Raan (leg of lamb roasted with Indian spices), amongst other crowd pleasers. A bountiful and colourful buffet will feature the marinades, curry and base sauces from Manjit’s secret family recipes, which have been synonymous with Indian food in Sydney for over 30 years.

A sumptuous dessert station will tempt diners with Indian sweets, including favourites such as Gulab Jamun, Mini Kulfi, Mithai Barfi and Halwa.

Chef Sorensen is thrilled to share his kitchen with Chef Gujral, one of Australia’s most admired Indian chefs who follows a family-food tradition spanning over 100 years. “Chef Gujral creates menus which are anchored in Indian culture, but reflect the creativity of modern Indian food while embracing local and unique Australian produce,” Chef Sorensen said.
