As world leaders prepare for the upcoming G20 Summit, scheduled for September 9-10 in India, they are in for an exceptional gastronomic experience. Amid discussions on pressing global issues, the summit will feature a captivating culinary journey, highlighting the diverse flavors of Indian street food and innovative millet-based dishes.
Venue: Bharat Mandapam
The culinary extravaganza will take place at the Bharat Mandapam, where climate-resistant and highly nutritious millet recipes from across India will be showcased.
Exploring India’s Rich Culinary Heritage
While the G20 Summit serves as an annual gathering of leaders from the world’s largest economies, it offers more than just discussions on global concerns. It provides a unique opportunity for world leaders to explore India’s rich culinary heritage. A highlight of their visit will be a chance to savor the delectable offerings of Chandni Chowk, a renowned hub for Indian street food, which is part of their itinerary during their visit to the international media center.
Enthusiasm for Culinary Endeavor
Muktesh Pardeshi, G20 India Special Secretary, expressed his enthusiasm for this culinary endeavor. He emphasized the dedicated efforts of chefs in crafting a menu that truly encapsulates the essence of Indian cuisine.
Millet-Based Dishes Take Center Stage
The G20 Summit aligns with the theme of the International Year of Millets (IYM) 2023, proposed by the Indian government and adopted by the United Nations General Assembly. Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi strongly supports IYM, envisioning it as a global movement and an opportunity to position India as a hub for millet cultivation. Millets, ancient grains consumed by over half a billion people in Asia and Africa and grown in more than 130 countries, have consistently featured in the menus of various G20 events hosted by India during its presidency.
These nutritious and sustainable grains have garnered international acclaim. For instance, during the G20 Culture Ministers’ Meeting in Varanasi, the Taj Ganges hotel curated a special menu featuring dishes like Ragi Litti and Chokha, showcasing the diversity and health benefits of millet-based dishes.
Luxury Hotels Join the Culinary Celebration
In anticipation of the G20 Summit, luxury hotels in Delhi are gearing up to offer gourmet delights, including millet-based dishes, to the heads of state and delegates attending the summit. With a blend of tradition and innovation, India is poised to delight the world with its culinary prowess at this year’s G20 Summit.
