Spring ’20
Shā Jahān

Majalise Vazn - Shah Jahan weighed against gold and silver twice a year on his ‘Lunar & Solar’ birthdays
Painting by Manohar Das (1610AD)

Jashan-e-Bahār  

A celebration of Spring with the world’s first ittar (South Asian fragrance) pairing.

We bring you recipes derived from a 17th century book titled ‘Nushka-e-ShahJahani’ about Shā Jahān – one of the most opulent and awe-inspiring kings to have ever lived. 

While he is infamously known for building the Tāj Mahāl, Shā Jahān was an epicure of Indian cuisine. There was no stone left unturned when it came to food during this period with therapeutic value, quality ingredients, meticulous sourcing, and constant innovation with each dish. For example, ice for cool drinks was sourced from the Himalayā, drinking water from the Gangā, and cooking water from the Yamunā Rivers.

This Spring at Lavendra, nourish your senses with the very first ittar (South Asian fragrance) pairing and painting album to compliment the Shā Jahān tasting menu. Our team, now spellbound in Mughal culture and attire, is ready to take you back to Shā Jahān’s reign for a fine dining metamorphosis at Lavendra.

Regards,
Inderpreet and the Lavendra Family
