Unique Tastes Of Maharashtra At Peshwa Pavilion, ITC Maratha

I had got an invitation from ITC Maratha to be a part of the festival held under the aegis of ‘Kitchens of India’, ‘Unique Tastes’ of Maharashtra to experience the exclusive culinary tasting session celebrating the indigenous flavours of Maharashtra from Vidarbha, Konkan and Kolhapur.

At Peshwa Pavilion they are introducing Maharashtrian fare in their menu both a la carte and buffet, to give their guests a feeling of eating light Home Style Cooked Food, specially keeping in mind their regular guests who travel frequently and stay at their hotel. Such frequent travellers, tend to miss their home cooked food which is simple, light, tasty and healthy with less oil and ghee. I'm sure the guests staying at ITC Maratha will now be lucky to get such healthy and tasty food at their disposal.
I think its a great initiative through which they will not only keep their travelling guests happy but also great for locals who want to taste authentic Maharashtrian food.

Let me share with you the details of my experience out there tasting the indigenous flavours of Maharashtra.

For welcome drinks there was  - Kokum Sharbat and Pineapple Juice.
