Your insights on Vocal About Local
It is a wonderful opportunity to promote the local ingredients and its broad spectrum potential to substitute commonly imported ingredients. At Cidade de Goa – IHCL SeleQtions, I am creating a subtly nuanced style of food that celebrates Goa’s rich culinary diversity. In addition, we are bringing to the table an innovative twist to your gourmet experience with a delicate balance of global favourites imbued with exciting local flavours.
Curating menus at your hotel using local ingredients
Rich in taste and Goan history, Saraswat cuisine is a gastronomic treasure trove of traditional flavour. At Café Azul, we showcase its authentic flavours in a Saraswat Taat with a wide variety of traditionally prepared Saraswat dishes served on a platter. The dishes showcased are seasonal and are locally procured.
The one local ingredient your kitchen cannot do without
Kokum is a key ingredient in Goan cuisine, it is commonly used once sun dried. It adds a unique pinkish purple hue and has a refreshing sour taste, slightly astringent.
