What happens when two of the most popular and loved cuisines come together ? It’s a gourmet’s paradise ! And this paradise is currently finding its abode at The Lalit Jaipur with its ongoing food festival – Go Indiano.
One of the top luxurious 5 star hotels – The Lalit Jaipur is hosting a food festival with a menu that has inhaled the spices from kitchens of India and picked some flavors from streets of Italy to put them all together in a way never done before. You must all have had paneer on a pizza, and love it, but this menu at Go Indiano goes beyond the cliches and fuses together the most eccentric veggies of both countries to create dishes you would yearn to give a try.
When Jaipur Beat had a word with Executive Chef Lenin Sreedharan, his expertise in Italian cuisine could be tasted in his knowledge of ingredients and spirit to experiment by mixing the most unusual vegetables, fruits, sauces and the like to form the menu of Go Indiano.
The recipes were as interesting to hear about as they were while eating. One of them was ‘Bharwan Kumb‘ – Kumb meaning mushroom stuffed with spinach ricotta and mushroom soil, fried artichoke & parmesan fondue.
Our favorite among all these was the Uttapam Lasagne ! It has layers of Uttapam because ‘Lasagne’ means layers of pasta sheets mixed with sauces, here it were the Uttapam layers topped with curry leaf pesto, loaded with cheese and served with the tri-color sauces.
The menu is a concoction of flavors of all parts of India i.e. East, West, North, South blended with those of Italy therefore giving your tongue a tour of both countries. With interesting choices like Kadai Paneer Pizza, Spaghetti with Almond Paste, Parmesan Creme Brulee (A mix of sweet & savory), the menu of Go Indiano is a well-thought and quite a daring one when it comes to experimental cuisine.
After a whole-hearty full meal, it’s time to entertain your sweet tooth, but there is no place for a simple & usual dessert in the dictionary of Go Indiano ! So last but not the least, the most creative dish of the menu – Tea-Ra-Misu was served. The popular coffee-flavoured Italian custard dessert – Tiramisu is made at The Lalit Jaipur with strong Masala tea flavors – just like an Indian likes it. Chai flavored dessert, what else could you ask for ?
The food festival is on only for 5 more days. So this week, don’t just go Indian or Italiano, Go Indiano 😀
