Avid Learning presents a book launch and panel discussion around the culture, traditions, food and architecture of Lucknow, the city once known as the City of Nawabs, in celebration of the Mumbai launch of The Lucknow Cookbook.
The old-world charm of Lucknow is still very much alive in the region and beyond with its Mughal-inspired food and recipes, courtly mannerisms and language, traditions of poetry, music and dance and aesthetics of architecture and embroidery. The book paints a portrait of the city and its storied history while celebrating the exquisite Lucknowi cuisine and the Tehzeeb (culture) and nazaakat (elegance) of the city.
Poet, Lyricist and Screenwriter Javed Akhtar will officially launch the book and recite original couplets inspired by the great city. Co-authors of the book Sunita Surya Kohli and Chand Sur will then be joined in conversation with Documentary Filmmaker and Author Nita Khanna and Interior Designer Pavitra Rajaram. These speakers share a unique passion for Lucknow and each will elucidate various aspects of the city’s graceful heritage.
Join us for a delightful evening and a unique opportunity to immerse yourself in the Lucknowi Tradition right here in Mumbai.
