BENARES CATERS THE BEST EVENTS OF YOUR LIFE

Indian cuisine is vastly different from region to region. As Chef Beck notes “In India, every 100 miles the food changes. From the Eastern areas influenced by China to the abundance of chilies for cooling purposes in Southern India, each state is very different. The menu is a medley of Indian dishes with an emphasis on the cuisine of the Western state of UP (Utter Pradesh) where the city of Benares is located. Benares, the city, is known for vegetarian dishes so the restaurant has over 20 including a Kashmiri Soup of roasted turnip and beetroot, pigeon peas, fennel, ginger, garlic and cumin and Achari Bindi (fresh okra cooked ‘in dum’ with pickled spices, onions and tomato).

However, the menu is not limited to vegetables and has some unusual seafood and meat dishes as well. Some of Chef Beck’s signature dishes are the Sevai Tomato Kurma (mussels, scallops, rock shrimp and crab claws tossed in a garlic tomato sauce over Indian style rice noodles) and the Tandoori Hen ( whole Cornish hen marinated in lime, ginger, cumin, garlic and garam masala and cooked in the tandoor oven).
