Exclusive Cannes 2024 Menu- Chef Varun Totlani Curates The Dinner At Bharat Parv With Indias Indigenous Ingredients
The Cannes Film Festival 2024 is underway and will be held between the 14th - 25th May, 2024 and at this 77th Edition, India is all set to host a 'Bharat Parv' for eminent dignitaries and guests. The initiative is designed to be a platform to showcase the wealth of the country’s film industry, foster partnerships in production, host informative sessions and generally to connect the world with India’s rich culture. And naturally, this includes showcasing India’s delicious and diverse cuisines.
The menu at the Bharat Parv will feature an ingredient-centric menu with dishes inspired by North and South Indian dishes along with a bar that highlights regional flavours. The menu, designed by Chef Varun Totlani of Masque, is a masterful medley of flavours from around the country that highlights less celebrated regional produce. Speaking on the dinner and collaboration, Chef Varun Totlani said, “This dinner was the perfect encapsulation of heritage India and the contemporary world, with a blend of culinary trends creating a five-course meal. Each dish, while uniquely Indian in its roots, imbibes a global flair to it. We wanted the entire experience to tell a story, with each dish complementing the other as well as the vibrant flavours of Godawan’s 01 Rich and Rounded and 02 Fruit and Spice - tapping into the brand’s anchors of heritage, culture, and craft.”
