Served as a traditional Kashmiri feast, Wazwan is a multi-course meal and a savoury that is relished widely. It has a simple meaning in the Kashmiri language – WAZ “cook” and WAN means “shop” and the food preparations are considered as an art. The Kashmiri spread includes a wide array of Kashmiri dishes and will be specially curated by renowned Wazwan Chef from Kashmir, Chef Abdul Hameed.
Chef Abdul Hameed is well-known for preparing authentic Kashmiri cuisines and has been flown into the city to stir up the palate of the guests. The food festival ‘Daawat-e-Wazwan’ will have some finest dishes that will be served throughout the meal and during the festival, especially; a theme based welcome drink on arrival and Kashmiri Kahwa.
Mr. Devesh Rawat, General Manager, Indore Marriott Hotel said, “In a country like India, where culture defines diversity, connecting with each other through food is indeed a celebration. Indore is well known for its food diversity; hence, it also accepted food from those regions, which are famous for its own method and preparation. Preparing the Kashmiri meal demands a lot of dedication and passion. The food festival will ensure that the dishes are rich in terms of the constituent elements that forms the core of a dish.” He further added, “The guests would savour the most innovative and exquisite dishes from India’s paradise in this food festival. The food is absolutely rich in taste and exotic in flavor. Kashmiri cuisine has become a popular choice among food lovers. Though, Kashmiri food is preferred mainly for its non-vegetarian dishes; however, there are some really mouth-watering vegetarian dishes too, which will be relished by all.”
The food festival is being conducted with an aim to provide guests with some appetizing and authentic Kashmiri delicacies in a buffet spread.
