There is no sincerer love than the love for food — these words by George Bernard Shaw have been considered as a dictum for gourmands for years. Emerging from this passion for food, a unique food festival, The Travelling Kitchen, is set to hit Jaipur, this Republic Day weekend. The fest spells a mélange of good food, great music and unlimited fun. But that’s not all! There is also Zumba, meditation and more.

“The Travelling Kitchen is not just a food festival. It’s a community carnival that brings people from Jaipur together. The two-day fiesta will kick off with a sunrise meditation session with healer Nirmala Sewani, followed by Zumba classes with Aashmita Nayar. The food fare will include signature restaurants from Delhi taking part and plating their delicacies. YouTube sensation singer Raj Barman, singer Tanya Nambiar, Delhi-based Samay band are all heading to the fest to perform,” says Bharat Singh Atwal, the founder of the festival.

Envisioned by Rani Jahnavi Kumari and Rao Raja Parikshit Singh of Jodhpur, the festival creates a niche for itself by transcending from just offering gourmet delights to a complete lifestyle wellness event. It will also have a kids’ corner, where the young visitors can join theatre and dance workshops and reading classes, while their family members participate in the first-of-its-kind culinary experience in the Pink City.

As many from Delhi gear up to spend the long weekend in the desert Capital and partake in its literary festival, this food gala becomes another halting place for food connoisseurs. “It seems that the whole world is in Jaipur now. I’m excited to meet authors and artists at the literature festival, and this food festival will add to the fun. I’m a foodie and it’s great to see healthy trends and good food are being taken seriously,” says Mitali Chakraborty, who will be travelling to Jaipur from Delhi.
