Your insights on Vocal About Local

Vocal About Local is a great initiative, not only for the country’s economy but also for health and wellbeing of its citizens. It is a very well-known fact, ingredients which are local and seasonal are best classified under ‘Super Food’ for the region, this perfectly imbibes the philosophy of going vocal for local. In our industry, we always believe – fewer the links in food chain, the fresher the produce. This initiative will not only encourage local produce but at the same time will also help to revive our lost recipes. In the culinary world, it is a great opportunity for us to create innovative flavours and delicacies using local ingredients.

All these ingredients are grown in our very own hotel garden.
