Chennai’s Courtyard by Marriott presents it’s Kerala Food Festival, Maapila – The Secrets of Timeless Flavours curated and made by Chef, Saji P Alex. Chef Saji is known for his Kerala cuisine and has made a name for himself in the cooking world with it. He’s cooked for Master Chef Australia judges and on the Ellen De Generes Show!
Chef Saji’s lineup for the festival feature all the traditional mainstays of Kerala cuisine, puttu with curry, appam with stew, Malabar parottas and kozhi varratiyathu, sweet banana chips and even yummy fish pickle! The food tasted like home cooked food and we absolutely loved it for that. We found ourselves visiting the appam station many times for refills. Since we’re talking about food, we must mention that the dessert section surprised us with a really light Mysore Pak that yummy without being oily. The food festival is on only for dinner throughout this week so do keep that in mind.
