Indian Culinary Week: Aromas of Assam

Gautam Thakuria
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 specialising in a regional cuisine. There will be a conversation about food followed by a tasting menu.

Chef Gautam Thakuria is a culinary artist who hails from Assam, India. Born and raised in a small village in Assam, Gautam has travelled across 7 countries honing his culinary skills. Gautam has been in the hospitality industry for over 15 years and has quickly gained recognition for his incredible knowledge and skill in the art of cooking.

He has received numerous accolades for his ability to create flavourful and innovative dishes that always leave a lasting impression. Gautam has had the honour of cooking for many prestigious events and has also been featured in multiple food-related publications.

Gautam's cooking style is a combination of both traditional and modern techniques, which makes his food truly unique. He specialises in both Indian and international cuisines and is always looking for new and inventive ways to bring the flavours of India to London.

Gautam, an alumnus of the Institute of Hotel Management (IHM) Guwahati, one of the most prestigious hotel management institutes in India, will present a few traditional and contemporary Assamese and Northeast Indian dishes.
