hosted by Little Kolkata
"Little Kolkata's supper clubs are about celebrating the true spirit of Calcutta and its culinary delights," says Prabir.
This supper club Machli (Hindi for fish) offers some of the most renowned Calcutta fish preperations. Calcutta's love for fish can only be compared to India's love for cricket.
They say - Calcutta’s are literally born to eat fish and rice.
The menu for this supper club is an eclectic choice of dishes from street food to Calcutta's heritage canteen recipes, to home made comfort food, to dishes inspired from the food offerings in Hindu temples. Calcutta is also called the sweetest part of India, hence the delicate choice of desserts will include use of date palm jaggery and saffron milk.
