Discover Lost Cuisines of Nepal at Hyatt Place Kathmandu

Hyatt Place Kathmandu is conducting a week-long food festival from 29 th  Oct to 5 th  Nov, to celebrate the food heritage & ethnic cuisines of Nepal in collaboration with Raithane - a food enterprise that champions
traditional ingredients and dishes.  

Nepal is a diverse country with a varied culture, language, and biodiversity. From the deep valleys to the high Himalayas and lush evergreen forests of Terai to the mountain grasslands, geography and culture have shaped and defined the food preferences of hundreds of ethnic groups that have evolved over time the way of life of the people. But, unfortunately, due for several reasons, these ethnic cuisines are being
forgotten or lost.  


Modernization is essential, equally important is to preserve the tradition & culture we inherited, cuisine being the impartial part of it. Underlining the same belief, “Lost Cuisines of Nepal” is an initiation by Hyatt Place Kathmandu to accent these traditional dishes which is not just going to be a culinary experience but also will take you through the journey of the lifestyle of the Nepalese people reflected through the food.  For instance, in Phalgi, the sweetness of young green maize is preserved by crushing it and drying it for use in winter stews. In Taruwa, seasonal greens are dipped in fresh batter and fried to provide a crispy bite to everyday meals. In Yanben faksa, wild edible lichen is elaborately processed and paired with pork offal. Thekuwa, an ancient delicacy, is prepared for matrimonial rituals in the Terai regions. These are a few mentions from the menu. This food fest, set in a traditional interior of Zing-World of Flavours, will feature even more ancient delicacies from nooks & corners of the country. 

This first-ever traditional food fest will be inaugurated by Mr Pawan Golyan who has been consistently promoting Nepal-made products with one of his many ventures, Mato
