If your only tryst with Goa has been with Sagar or Kabhi Haan Kabhi Naa, then
it's unlikely you'll know what terms like Balchao, Vindaloo and Bibinca mean.
Here's an expensive way to find out.
The Goan Food Festival, on at the Deccan
Pavilion in the ITC
Kakatiya Sheraton, should be pretty interesting for all fans of Goan cuisine.
There are a variety of dishes like the ones mentioned above and several others
that will be served for 10 days at a stretch at this fest that has had three chefs
flown in. You also get to enjoy the Goan music while savoring food, to add to
the feeling of authenticity. 4 dancers and 2 singers, with musicians accompanying
them, will present Dekhni, Kunbhi, Cotti Fungdi and Vauradi.
The Goan cuisine will be a part of the existing buffet at the Deccan Pavilion for lunch and dinner, and the musical performances will happen in the evening.
