We all love to celebrate! At DLC food festival lets come together to celebrate festivals the foodie way!!!

In India, there is one festival or the other in a month. And most of these are dedicated to an advent of a season or some diety etc., What is important for a foodie is that these festivals have some unique recipes that one gets to make or eat only once an year during that festival. Sometimes these are traditional recipes that you saw your mom making or sometimes could be recipes that your immeditate family has a tradition to have at that particular time of the festival! Or sometimes it could be some festival one gets ‘adapted’ to celebrate  when one moves to a foreign country.
