DROP-IN DINNER — Across India by Ketan & Archana

Discover the unique flavours of special regional dishes from across the Indian subcontinent presented with a contemporary twist, showcasing Chef Ketan Dongre‘s Indian roots combined with his experience working in fine dining restaurants around the world.

“The most exciting part about making these dishes is to introduce people to a variety of regional dishes from India that they might not get a chance to try unless they travel to India. I want to not only showcase unique regional dishes, but also give them a modern and international touch in their presentations and plating.“
