Get Direction

We are delighted to bring before you a weeklong experience in culinary delight. India is a melting pot of cultures and along with it a myriad of cuisines. In a country as vast as India each state offers a cuisine which is distinct from the other, yet the base and the spices remain similar. One can never tire of the tantalising flavours of the various cuisines of the Indian Sub-Continent.

Join us at The Nehru Centre, where each day of the week, we will introduce a new chef specializing in a regional cuisine. There will be a conversation about food followed by a tasting menu.
