The Northeast India region is a beautiful melody of virgin hills and valleys, gently flowing the blue Brahmaputra river and stunning waterfalls, and the green bamboos — that make it a nature’s paradise. Although each of the state has different traditions and cultures, but the love the people share for each other has made them called – the seven sisters and one brother.
We’re a bunch of young and fun people of various profession — journalist, lawyer, activist, and engineer, from Assam staying in Delhi, who have come together to form a brand name Twisted Foods — a platform where one gets home-made meals (delicious, healthy and hygienic) prepared with the freshest of ingredients and of course love, and are served at our home in Malviya Nagar.
The whole idea behind starting this concept is the craving we’ve seen in people for simple yet tasty meals cooked at home. Thousands of people are staying miles away from home — be it for studies, career etc. Delhi does have hotels and restaurants serving authentic cuisines, but can it beat the feel of savouring a meal at home? We offer that warmth that a restaurant lacks, plus our meals are very reasonably priced. Just imagine, sit on the floor with ten other like-minded people, make new friends, and spread the joy of sharing meals. Also, we believe by hosting events we can create awareness among other people (non-north easterns) about the rich culinary culture of the state.
A Slice Of Assam On A Plate is our very first attempt to bring people closer to our home state, Assam. To be hosted on November 22, 2015 (Sunday), we’ve planned a beautiful menu that includes both vegetarian and non-vegetarian delicacies. We’re not professional chefs, but well, we can promise to let you down. We’ve got most of our ingredients flown in from Assam, and our friend/co-founder/chef Nasir Yusuf Rahman will be churning out the beauties. We will be extremely grateful, if you could come and taste the preparations, and write a review on your blog/publication. We all need your support, and will take your feedback to do better. In case, you’re not in town, a listing of the event will be highly appreciated.
