Shangri-La hits the right note with Chettinad flavours

Last two weeks have seen the people from Bengaluru delight their taste buds with the complexity of flavors from Chettinad and there is just one name to thank – Shangri-La’s all-day dining restaurant, b Café.  The thirteen-day long food festival, which ends on Independence Day, have highlighted the flavourful spirit of Chettiars with spices and flavors taking the center stage.

The Chettinad festival at B Café witnessed the traditional showcase of delicacies with an elaborate menu celebrating the cuisine. Award-winning Chef, Prabhakaran’s prowess lies in his research capabilities, which he have employed to bring forth the best from the region. The authenticity of taste at this festival reflects the three-day journey he undertook to Chettinad to understand the use of regionally differentiated ingredients and spices that lends an authentic taste to the menu. He also met some of the local folks who shared their insights to craft the perfect Chettinad meal.

The menu was different throughout the two weeks. Listing down the highlights from what was served on the 8th day of the festival.
