The cuisine has already been influenced in terms of standardizing menus and presentation so the day is not far when Indians will be more familiar with French specialities and classic ingredients. The French culinary events like Good France is a great initiative to promote French gastronomy in India and it's an honour for The Imperial to be part of an international gourmet at a global level. We, at Nostalgia, use exclusive French cheese, cream, butter, seafood and meats to keep the local flavours intact and these local ingredients only help in achieving a perfect dish which the French guests relish."
