West Bengal is a state in eastern India, between the Himalayas and the Bay of Bengal with a unique geopolitical, cultural and historic significance. Bengali culture, considered one of the richest cultures in the Indian subcontinent has a recorded history of over 1,400 years.
Bengali cuisine is a culinary style originating in Bengal region of the Indian subcontinent, which is now divided between Bangladesh and the Indian states of West Bengal, Tripura and Assam’s Barak Valley. The cuisine sees a bias towards freshwater fish, vegetables, and lentil dishes that served with rice as a staple diet.
Bengali cuisine is known for its subtle (yet sometimes fiery) flavours and its spread of confectioneries and desserts. It also has the only traditionally developed multi-course custom from the cuisines of the Indian subcontinent that is similar in structure to the à la russe style of French cuisine, with food served course-wise rather than all at once.
At Daana, however, we will present it as a Thali this weekend. So, come join us to celebrate great food this festive season!
