“We couldn’t simply stand by and watch the worsening crisis develop, so we’re hoping that our fundraising efforts throughout May, culminating in a big feast on the 31st, will raise a great deal of money and awareness,” said Rohit Ghai, chef patron at the London restaurant. “I’ll be in the kitchen cooking for as many guests as possible as we open our doors to serve a very special menu of which all proceeds will go towards India-based Brij Healthcare and Research Centre to purchase medical-grade oxygen concentrators for free health care.”
Chef Ghai has curated two special six-course Expedition menus for the Kutir charity meal, including one vegetarian option, both of which will be accompanied by an expertly selected wine pairing. As with all his menus, the Expedition menu will draw on chef Ghai’s travels through India and offers an innovative take on some of the country’s most well-known dishes in a fine dining setting. Menu highlights include soft shell crab with chickpea, tandoori salmon with a dill raita and battered paneer with a pomegranate and mint chutney.
Throughout the rest of the month Kutir has also called upon its guests to make donations towards the Indian Covid-19 support cause, with the restaurant matching each donation like for like, doubling the financial aid provided.
Kutir’s Expedition menu £65 ($92) per person; wine pairing £55 ($78). Available from 1pm – 10pm Monday, May 31 only. Visit kutir.co.uk to book.
