NewZNew (Chandigarh) : Discover the taste of authentic old Delhi cuisine with Master Chef Mohammed Mofid, at the Serenade Pavilion, our all day dining restaurant at WelcomHotel Bella Vista.

From the crevices of Delhi’s prolific past, comes a forgotten culinary legacy, Dehlnavi. The uniqueness of Dehlnavi cuisine lies in its fascinating mix of traditions, geography, cultureand community influences

DSC_0030 (Small)The Chef’s eyes are intensely focused on the simmering kadai as he adds spices to fine tune the aromas emanating from within. Contended that the right mix is in the right place, he gently stirs the meat as it marinates within the irresistibly inviting flavours… until it was time to sample it for approval.

What he has inherited as a priceless gourmet repertoire was long forgotten and hidden away in the annals of Delhi’s turbulent past, its narrow lanes and alleys, Mohallas and old homes, relegated to oblivion…well almost. Chef Mohammed Mofid has now revived the fascinating delights of Dehlnavi cuisine, ancient Delhi’s own gastronomical saga. Recasting and reviving this culinary heritage once enjoyed in Mughal courts and by royalty, “Kitchens of India” has recreated these delicacies at ITC hotels.
