BHUBANESWAR: Unity in diversity sums up the idea behind the upcoming food festival at Hotel Trident. Coinciding with the 68th Independence Day celebrations, the F&B team has planned an  assemblage of flavours of India  - from Kashmir to Kanyakumari and Assam to Gujarat, in the thali form.

Scheduled from August 13 to 17, the festival will be open from noon till dinner at the restaurant with four serving regimes. Beginning with welcome drinks, the guests will be treated with appetisers in the form of kebabs, the main course and dessert, all preplated.

‘’Independence Day is a holiday for all and people love to eat out on such occasions. Going by the sentiments of people for such occasions, we decided to bring in cuisines from all parts of the country and serve it on one platter to give a feel of unity,’’ explained Prashant Trivedi, F&B Manager, Trident.

The dishes include Sol Kadhi from Maharashtra, Giloti Kebab from Uttar Pradesh, Lal Maas from Rajasthan, Dum ki biryani from Awadh, Prawn Balchao from Goa, Avial from Tamil Nadu, Undhiyo from Gujarat, Chholar Dal from Bengal and Kanika Rice from Odisha, to name a few.

‘’The dessert in fact is a combination of Indian and Continental. We have mousse and gulab jamun but these will be served in the colours of the Tricolour,’’ Trivedi added.

The complete course is priced at ` 800 for vegetarian and ` 1000 for meat selection, exclusive of taxes.
