Skyview By Empyrean along with Sanjay Raina, Celebrity Masterchef and culinary ambassador of Kashmir, is hosting a 10-day food festival to showcase the cuisine of both Jammu and Kashmir from May 20 to 29, 2022. The festival, “Paradise on a Platter” will be open to all visitors from 11 am to 5 pm at the Banana Leaf Restaurant for a complete experience and at the Skyview Cafe for a tasting menu.
Says Celebrity Masterchef Sanjay Raina, “The Jammu & Kashmir region is a melting pot of cultures, food and art where culture and food are deeply intertwined. Paradise on a Platter at Skyview Patnitop will be a sensory experience of Wazwan, Kashmiri Pandit, and Dogra cuisine and will highlight the cultural moorings behind the cuisines of Jammu and Kashmir.”
The festival also sees live counters including the chef’s speciality platter along with live entertainment including sufi music, traditional artisans showcasing the traditional Kashmiri wares.
The menu offers a vast range of mouthwatering non veg specialties from the Kashmir valley like Murg Yakhni, Tabakmaaz, Rista, Roganjosh, Gushtaba, Yakhni Pulao, and vegetarian fare including the freshest Haaq Saag, Nadru Palak, Dum Aloo and Tamatar Paneer along with Kashmiri Naan. Cuisine of Jammu will be represented by the equally unique delicious Dogri fare which include the all time north Indian favourite Rajmah, Khatta Meat and Dal Dogri. To wrap up the meal there is the Kashmiri dessert “Kesar Phirni'' or a hot cup of the flavourful Kashmiri tea called Kahwa.
Syed Junaid Altaf, Managing Director, Empyrean Skyview Projects Pvt. Ltd., says: “It’s an honour to partner with the passionate and knowledgeable Chef Raina to showcase the rich cultural and gastronomic legacy of the cuisine from J&K Despite being a part of the Indian subcontinent, like all regional cuisine of the land, - food from this region is unique, as it represents three cultures set in paradise. The famous Wazwan, which literally translates to a feast and is almost ceremonial to everyday staples, the cuisine is rich and flavourful.”
