My taste buds always start to tickle when I know I am going for some food festival, knowing the immense variety of flavours I am going to experience there. An invite to the British food festival buffet lunch at the all-day dining restaurant at Café Fontana, Taj Palace New Delhi was no different.
For the non-vegetarian’s it’s definitely a toothsome experience. So Maneesh enjoyed the much recommended by the chef “Fish and Saffron” soup. The colour looked really inviting. To go along with it, the crumb fried fish is very engaging. Then of course the classic Billingsgate Fish pie, the name being derived from the famous Billingsgate Fish Market from where the seafood is sourced. An utterly perfect dish, Maneesh said, “The Chef knows his fish”. The cornfed chicken (corn-fed-chickens) with barbeque sauce was quite flavourful and juicy too. The Butcher’s pie (made with lamb) looked very attractive with the crisp golden crust pastry shell, and was just the dish one would want to taste at food festival like this.
