Curated by acclaimed culinary expert, author and

wildlife enthusiast Chef Michael Swamy, renowned for his mastery of Bhutanese and Indian cuisines, the 'Bhutan to Bharat' festival promises an unparalleled dining experience celebrating the culinary journey of the two cultures. Chef Michael Swamy expresses his eagerness: "Bhutanese cuisine has so much flavour to offer and hasn't been explored much in India. I'm excited to introduce these beautiful authentic flavours to our guests, curate a menu, and understand where they think the India and Bhutan culinary confluence happens. This menu at Food Exchange, Novotel Mumbai International Airport will be a fusion of shared traditions, fresh ingredients, and amalgamating two nations' cultural richness and culinary diversity".


The curated dinner buffet at Food Exchange, Novotel Mumbai International Airport, will feature a wide variety of carefully prepared dishes such as Ema Datshi—Bhutan's National Dish, Doh Syiar Nei-Iong, and Bak Thuk Noodles with Asian Vegetables.
