On behalf of JW Marriott Bengaluru, I was invited for a live cooking demo by Chef Surjan Singh Jolly and experience this food festival on November 1, 2014
Food from Tangra is a distinct variety of traditional Hakka Chinese cuisine adapted to Indian ingredients and the Bengali palate. This has spread to the rest of India, along with the recipes earlier unique to Tangra. Tangra is now the most popular destination for Chinese food. Chinese food sold in Tangra restaurants are now known all over the world as 'Hakka Style" Chinese food.
The food festival started on October 31 is a ten day long food festival aims to recreate a complete experience and showcase the best of Kolkata Chinese street food .
I am a big fan of Chinese food and I was lucky to get some good vegetarian Chinese food though the Tangra cuisine which is less of vegetarian. But catering to Indian adaptions many vegetarian dishes have been included like golden fried baby corn, mushrooms, threaded crispy paneer, vegetarian momo etc.
The master class workshop by Chef Joly Director F & B and Chef Edwin Lou and his team stirred up some very yummy dishes. Here is a glimpse!
