A Maharajah Feast

Our Maharajah’s Feast box is a celebration of the cuisine of the Royal Palaces and families that once governed and ruled India. All the recipes here were collected from various royal families by Maharani S.D Holkar of Indore as a way of preserving a historical culinary heritage. This archive of treasured recipes was graciously gifted to Pratap as a wedding present by her daughter, a very dear friend of Nikhat’s. We’ve been cooking from it every winter since we launched in 2013 at our weekly supperclub and also for private events in London. As with so many businesses, COVID has seen the complete loss of our regular business but we just couldn’t bear the thought of not being able to cook our Maharajah’s Feast this year. The mixed box is suitable for non vegetarians and also for couples where there is a vegetarian.

All of the dishes come fully cooked (except the rice) and require minimal assembly. They also come with complete guidance on reheating and serving but also with videos about the history and folklore behind the dishes and the magnificent life of the royals in India.
