The Chanakya hosted 2nd edition of Luxe Affair "MARIGOLD NIGHT" in association with the Embassy of Republic of Peru in India
The Chanakya along with the Embassy of Peru hosted “Marigold Night” on 17th of October. An evening that was a celebration of the twin cultures and a coming together of the two communities, was a visual treat which had fascinating décor from the artisanal communities across India and Peru. The event was graced with the presence of dignitaries from all walks of life, such as diplomats, gastronomy enthusiasts, social media influencers, print & digital media personalities. It beautifully showcased the fusion of Peruvian and Indian traditions, the guests were delighted to be presented with traditional Peruvian cap and hair bands. They explored the stalls of mehendi designing, bangles and palmist as well.
During the course of the cultural event, the Executive Chef of MKT stirred up an exquisite fusion of Indo-Peruvian dishes including : “Indian Barley Chupe”, “Peruvian Escabeche Capretto Gujiya”, “Chicken Shi Jao Kay Sliders with an Indian Twist”, “Quinoa Indian Tacos”, “Avocado Indian style Burger” and wonderful desserts, such as Pisco inspired cinnamon cake. Even though Pisco Sour is considered the king of Pisco cocktails, the night witnessed new brilliance in the form of Kokum Pisco and Delhi 6 Sour Masala, both Pisco sour but with an Indian twist. This unique burst of flavour was thoroughly enjoyed by all the guests alike. The night was a confluence of cultures from the Land of Festivities and the Land of the Incas.
