Soaltee Crowne Plaza is hosting their Kashmiri food promotion at The Kakori Restaurant

Kashmiri Dastarkhan - the Kashmiri Wazwan Collection curated by renowned fashion designer Daljit Sudan who hails from Jamu, is on from May 18 to 28.

Kashmir has always been a utopia for poets, artisans and dreamers with its natural beauty and snow covered peaks and flower abundant valleys. With its unique history, language, literature, art and architecture and culture and traditions Kashmir has always fascinated the visitor with its distinctive individuality.

Along with its scenic beauty Kashmir is renowned for its fascinating cuisine, which offers vegetarian and non-vegetarian delicacies. According to locals, when Timur invaded India in the 15th century, he brought around 1700 workers, wood carvers, weavers, calligraphers, architects and cooks from Samarkand.

The descendants of these cooks - the wazas, are the master chefs of Kashmiri cuisine and the elaborate preparation of a ceremonial lavish meal often comprising of 36 dishes makes the Wazwan and the preparation is considered an art and a point of pride in Kashmir as it takes days of planning and hours of preparation. The ritual of serving it to people is called Dastarkhan. Now patrons can enjoy these mouth-watering dishes and exquisite flavours at Kakori.
