The Imperial invites you to celebrate Culinary Traditions of Lucknow and Delhi Revived with ‘Clash of The Titans’ at Daniell’s Tavern. The Masterchefs Ved And Mirza fight a gourmet battle to present recipes from their archives
Curries to warm your heart and kebabs to bring back the tradition of Nawabs. Chef Ved Prakash and Chef Mirza Munnawar Baig, the culinary titans at The Imperial are presenting this November a confluence of Indian culinary heritage with Clash of The Titans, at Daniell’s Tavern.
The menus by both the chefs feature a perfect ensemble of hand-picked traditional favourites from Delhi and Lucknow. The enticing flavours of Kebabs and the tantalizing aroma of the biryanis from the royal gharana of Lucknow along with the all-time famous rich curries from Purani Dilli, recreate the magic of the lost traditions.
Vijay Wanchoo, Sr. Executive Vice President and General Manager, The Imperial New Delhi says “The concept of ‘Clash of the Titans’ takes you on a delectable culinary journey of Hindustan and revives the traditional recipes, passed on to our Masterchefs Ved and Mirza by their forefathers. The menus by the chefs revisit the legendary food aesthetics of Lucknow and Purani Dilli, passed on from generation to generation”. He further says, “The magic is recreated for discerning diners with Gosht ki Ghilawat, Kakori kebabs, Chakunder aur Raamdana ki tikki along with an array of Dum Biryanis by Chef Mirza while Chef Ved offers his meticulous craftsmanship with Guchhi Mussalam, Mahi Nazakat, Dilli6 ka Mutton Korma with Purani Dilli ka shahi tukda, all to reconnect with our forgotten recipes”.
An insight on the chef’s surfaces Chef Mirza as the fourth generation of Khansama from Lucknow. His forefathers used to work with Nawabs of Awadh and their gharanas. He presents in this menu traditional kebabs like Kakori, Galouti along with the all-time famous Biryanis. Mirza has generously used his own blend of spices which are prominent in his recipes.
Throwing light on Chef Ved’s legacy, his grandfather used to own an eatery in Old Dilli at the time of independence, famous for curries like Paya Shorba and Purani Dilli Ka Mutton Korma. He therefore brings in this menu the same flavours inspired from his grandfather’s collection as memoirs from his childhood, straight from the heart of Dilli. His spice levels are in between medium to high and his curries have a velvety texture, for an unforgettable dining experience.
So, join at the, home to heart of Hindustan and relish the authentic flavours of Dilli and Lucknow with Clash of The Titans at Daniell’s Tavern, The Imperial, New Delhi, open from 17th November – 24th November 2018.
