Our food events are unique as we entwine culinary heritage with history to create immersive dining experiences for our patrons. We believe modern day travellers look for immersive experiences and our festival attempts to recreate the magic and old world charm of Lucknow, right infront of their eyes.”

Pradipt Sinha, Director of Food and Beverage, Crowne Plaza New Delhi Okhla said, “Awadhi cuisine is known for Dum style of cooking which will be unique selling proposition for the food festival. We have collaborated with local chefs from Lucknow to capture the secret behind these mouth watering aromatic delicacies. While Mughlai cuisine which is extremely popular in Delhi focuses on grilling & roasting over Tandoor with high quotient of ghee and spices, Awadhi cuisine has subtler flavours with blend of selective yet exotic spices and thus retains the taste of main ingredients.”
