punjabi food and we have a lot of delicacies prepared for the
Food alone has the power
to garner a lot of attention, but for the musically inclined lot,
these festivals are normally accompanied with music. Good dining may
be the mantra of these festivals in Gurgaon, but ambience play a big
part in the promotion of the event. Rawat agrees and says that they
have arranged for 4 dance performances each day throughout the
festival, which hopefully will make it an event bigger event.
''We are not asking people
to pay extra for the festival and we are providing quality food. For
vegetarians we have a Shami kebab, punjabi dal, Kumbh Makai Masala
and for non vegetarians we have Masala Chicken and Mutton Booti Kebab
as starters,'' says Rawat who also says that this punjabi food
festival is the most popular of all festivals in Gurgaon.
Ashim Sunam, who loves
north Indian food and is a foodie loves these food festivals. Talking
about them, he says, ''winter is my favorite season as Gurgaon has so
many food festivals going on and I just love food made out of fresh
produce. Non vegetarian food is my first love but I also live on
desserts in food festival. and this is the time when both customers
and chefs get daring and a little crazy.''
