No festivals get complete without food especially if it calls for Bengali occasion. “Rabindranath Tagore often used food as a medium for ironic and satirical observation of human character!"
Rabindranath Tagore grew up in the Jorasanko Thakurbari, where there was the prevalence of a distinct culture. While speaking about Bengali culture, it is not possible to omit the subject of food. Like all Bengalis, the Tagores, too, were great fans of food. Like other aspect in the Thakurbari, their food, too, was perfect fusion of Indian and western influences.
 Keeping in mind, the culinary revolution Thakurbari kitchen use to undergo to recreate the magic of the food which lingered in Tagore’s taste buds - Park Plaza Kolkata Ballygunge has organized a Poila Baisakh themed Thakur Barir Bhoj for this Bengali New Year’s Day.
On the occasion Jayanta Banerjee, Executive Chef of Park Plaza Kolkata Ballygunge said: “While planning for Poila Boishakh celebration at K 19, the thought came in to my mind to include the delicacies from that Thakurbarir diary. Hence, it is not that all the recipes were from Jorsanko Thakurbari, but of course Tagore’s favorite foods. We hope we are able incorporate the authentic taste in all our preparations. We look forward to serve our guests with relish and exotic food variations from the Thakurbari”.
