LONGWOOD has long been the go-to destination for couples planning their traditional Indian Wedding in Boston and on the East Coast. Known for their rich traditions and vibrant hues, these fêtes can be held for 3 to 4 days. These events are truly a feast for the eyes (as well as the stomach). That’s why we want to make it easy for brides & grooms to plan them. In honor of these gorgeous ceremonies, our Chef has created a brand new menu that presents Longwood’s take on Indian Cuisine. Introducing the new Indian Fusion Menu.
“We’re seeing an increase in demand for Indian Weddings,” says Culinary Arts Director, David Blessing, “and we don’t limit ourselves or our menus.” The Indian Fusion Menu draws on the flavors of Southeast Asian cuisine, while incorporating New England’s best. The results are dishes that surprise and delight, including: Grilled Tandoori Baby Lamb Chops and Crispy Curry Basmati Rice Balls.
“Indian food is intensely flavorful, so they’re great as small bites,” says Chef Blessing of the passed hors d’oeuvres he’s created for the menu. The spicy paneer kabob for example, is marinated in ginger and chili and paired with mint chutney, packing a tasty punch. Or why not try the Palaak Chat Spoon(pictured below), which is a single intense bite of rich yogurt, topped with crisp spinach, cilantro, tomato and Tamarind Chutney? These innovative dishes are sure to be guest favorites.
For entrées, we offer a wonderfully complex layering of flavors in the vegetable korma. Originally, an old family recipe, it was adapted and enhanced by our Chef for an all vegetarian wedding.
Whether you are planning a multi-day extravaganza with all the traditional customs or an Indian wedding with modern elements, we’re happy to accommodate. Want to learn more about the Indian Fusion Menu? Contact us here.
