Small Kitchen Design Bangladesh Stealing Amazing Inspiration
It’s an acutely hot and boiling Saturday afternoon in the basic and we access the 23rd attic of the Westin Dhaka with huge anticipation. The army is welcoming, anybody is in their best attire, attractive affected in white and florals. As the guests kept cloudburst in, one couldn’t advice but admiration area the brilliant of the occasion, Kishwar Chowdhury was.
Right at that actual moment, as if to allay the enquiries or billow the anticipation, specialty drinks forth with a actual altered dish, ‘micro herb’ Fuchka (semolina shell) abounding with beetroots and aerated feta, were served to the guests. The aftertaste was absurd and the flavours erupted with anniversary mouthful, relying heavily on the affluent buttery flavours of cheese, trifling garden beet and crusted semolina. Something bewitched happened adapted afresh and there, and the guests anon realised that the acquaintance advanced would be a memorable one. The ‘Kishwar Magic’ had already begun.
After bisected an hour of the assortment session, the arrive account of 115 were guided into the coveted Prego restaurant and Kishwar Chowdhury was adapted there in the kitchen— active prepping with the staff, to get cafeteria going. While our hearts were pumping faster than usual, the chef in the accessible kitchen seemed all calm and composed. Last minute plating was up and running, a déjà vu for Kishwar, alteration aback to the sets of the MasterChef kitchen, aggravating her best to attach the décor afore presenting them to a allowance abounding of guests, instead of a scattering of judges, this time around.
As we acclimatized bottomward to adore the blow of the bristles advance degustation curated by Durjoy Bangladesh Foundation (DBF) and able by Kishwar, the hosts of the break Durjoy Rahman, and his bigger bisected Sania Ahsan, of the DBF acclaim are absolutely aboveboard with their intentions.”I am abiding all of you are activity to adore Kishwar’s comestible abilities today, she brought Bangladesh to the apple map already afresh with aloof that, and it is with pride that we present her adroitness to the Dhaka crowd,” said Rahman.
While the chat flowed and guests remained mesmerised with the celebrity chef up close, Kishwar headed over to the kitchen already added to advice her team. The additional advance was assuredly out.
Yellow appendage ceviche, starfruit & pepper drupe in blooming water. This amazing item, aggressive by accurate Japanese cuisine, kept Bangladeshi sensibilities in apperception as well. A above additive actuality the acclaimed bounded bake-apple kamranga (starfruit), helped to add on accustomed acerbic to the sashimi appearance Japanese Hamachi, whilst arena with the alien colours of bounce and accumulation a agrarian blow to the menu.
After confined the super-light, summer adapted dish, Kishwar aggregate a baby chestnut about the menu. “While creating this menu, we were clumsy to acquisition the starfruit in any of the kitchen-markets about boondocks or any of the grocery shops. We had to get it from a clandestine farm…,” which speaks a lot for the candor of the chef.
For the third course, Kishwar presented Scallops with Yuze alloyed melon. While the name may complete actual complicated to the novice, the capacity account batten otherwise. The absolute bowl was a comedy on the senses and accent a actual accepted bounded additive namely the lau (winter melon/water gourd). Another above allure of this specific card was that it was fatigued based on the abstraction of no-waste ecological kitchen, area the absolute bowl acclimated the baptize alembic from its arch to the tail, a abstraction accepted to Bengali ancestry and culture.
For the fourth bowl Kishwar brought out, Foie gras, cartilage marrow, osso bucco and built-in jam, which was an analysis of textures through three altered genitalia of the bovine protein. To comedy with the aftertaste were added European truffles and Australian built-in jam, adulatory the best of the attenuate and awful approved capacity sourced from about the globe. After two courses of ablaze vegetarian-based meal, came the protein pack: assurance an all-embracing chef to amuse every guest. That’s accommodation on point.
Last but not the atomic in actuality the best allotment of the meal, the ambrosia was presented. Kishwar calls it the Adulation letter to Dhaka. And on an burning the guests were transported aback to the specific MasterChef adventure area she presented ‘the altered item’ to the judges. And Melissa Leong exclaimed with an ear-to-ear grin, “It’s as if Kishwar committed a adulation letter to Bangladesh,” and anon goosebumps formed on the added ancillary of the screen, amidst the millions in our admired country.
The abracadabra was recreated afresh with the mishti paan (the candied betel leaf). Components of this card included fennel ice-cream with broiled coconut, dates, candied fennel and jaggery caramel all sitting on a beginning betel leaf. The account looked ‘too big’ to be eaten at once, as advised with paans, but the Dhaka army didn’t care. Anybody was animated and dived into the bowl in the best acceptable way; asthmatic it all at one go. If advantage anytime took appearance and anatomy – it would accept been this.
The accident concluded with the star-chef sending out added adulation by signing card cards and demography multitudes of selfies with the acquisitive guests. It was absolutely a moment of epiphany; how beholden we were to accept a Bangladeshi represent us seamlessly, on the apple stage.
