Kala Ghoda- With every passing year, the Kala Ghoda festival evolves and with new dimensions added every year.
Food has been included as an important component of the festival this year, reflecting Mumbai’s evolving culinary palette. Greater importance is being placed on fresh, organic, locally grown food. That quite a few restaurants in Kala Ghoda source their ingredients directly from local farmers speaks for itself.
The Kala Ghoda 2017 food festival is interestingly titled ‘Horse Radish’ and is a definite nod to this trend in Mumbai’s food scene.
Food demonstrations and talks by well known city chefs are being held at Cross Maidan, with a few taking place at Westside as well. Each workshop has been tailored around the likes of the people who enjoy KGAF.
Ranveer Brar, Ajay Chopra, Rakhee Vaswani, Pooja Dhingra and Rushina Munshaw Ghildiyal will all be at the festival this year.
The highlight of this section is the market space at Cross Maidan that introduces brands and restaurants that work with local produce and Indian suppliers. Stalls include Rajasthani (Aapno Rajasthani Caterers), Kashmiri (Kashmir ki Kahaani), Tibetan (Mo:Mo), Kohli (Sadhana Kitchen) and Indian desserts (Shahi Durbar) to name a few.
