The culinary fest is aptly named Khana, which means food in Hindi. To ensure that the intricacies of India´s cuisine, one of the most colorful and diverse in the world, is presented to perfection, Marco Polo Plaza Cebu has taken on Judeline L. Murjani as event consultant.

Authentic Indian dishes

Murjani, a Cebuana married to an Indian national and the mother of former Miss Cebu Namrata Neesha, brought as usual her repertoire of experience and skills to the Cafe Marco kitchen.

She and Cafe Marco´s world class chefs prepared a line-up of dishes that make up an authentic and fitting Indian feast for Diwali. (Full listing of  dishes at the end of this article)
