There may be a lot of prose about Nature's amazing creativity and bountiful beauty
resplendent in it, but the greatest appreciation of all the amazing life under
water for man lies in one simple fact - it's great to eat. And since gastronomic
pursuits (or, put a little more bluntly, the pursuit of life) take precedence
over raving about magnificence 10,000 meters or 20,000 leagues under, his greatest
skill in matters regarding the ocean is culinary. Here's a chance to see some
of the best of that.
Hotel Golkonda, after its recent "Chaat Show" in July, is back with a new food festival called the "Coastal Food Fiesta". The wide range of cuisine that is popular in the Malabar, Konkan and Mangalore coastal regions will be served at this festival.
