It’s a day that resonates deeply with every Indian, reminding us of the sacrifices made by our forefathers and the progress we’ve achieved as a nation. What better way to honour this significant day than through a sumptuous Indipendence day themed lunch that not only fills the stomach but also the soul?
Independence Themed Lunch
On the 11th of August 2023, the Inspiria Knowledge Campus, Department of Hospitality and Hotel Administration, orchestrated a culinary extravaganza that beautifully encapsulated the essence of India’s 77 glorious years of independence.
A Symphony of Flavors
As the clock ticked towards noon, the Inspiria campus transformed into a patriotic vibe and gastronomic delight. The talented 2nd-year Hospitality Management students prepped up a six-course meal that was a journey through India’s rich culinary tapestry.
The preparation was under the expert guidance of the HOD of BSc. HHA Mr Anjani Nandan. The Food and Beverages (F&B) lab and dining area were a sight to behold, adorned in the vibrant hues of the tricolour, thanks to the artistic vision of Mr Saptarshi Halder and Mrs Banhisikha Saha.

The carefully curated menu was a tribute to India’s diverse cuisine, a reflection of its unity in diversity. The items on the 6-course meal were as follows:
Amritras(Orange): Mocktails as the welcome drinks.
Jeera Pulao: Cumin seeds and ghee-tempered basmati rice.
Maa Ka DAl: Black urad cooked with Indian spices and cream and butter.

Not just the main course, the students went beyond to create tricolour-themed doughnuts, adding a burst of patriotic flavor, and an array of vibrant mocktails to further enhance the culinary experience.
