As Navdanya and India International 
Centre celebrate Bhoomi the Annapurna, whose Food Basket is ever bountiful and diverse, we have curated a dinner around Roots and Shoots. This dinner aims to reconnect us to the myriad sources of food and expand our culinary awareness beyond the limited offerings of monoculture farming systems. It is only when we rediscover and reclaim these roots, shoots, leaves as well as fruits, vegetables and grains that we can start strengthening our food security.

The shoots of the future of our food grow out of the roots of the heritage of our crops and the cultural diversity of our cuisines.

We hope you enjoy this biodiverse meal with us on 2nd Oct.2010, 8.30 pm at Private Dining Hall.

Due to limited seating facilities at IIC Private Dining Hall, we would like you to confirm your registration for the dinner at an early date. The dinner bookings are being done on a first come first served basis.

Bon appétit


(Dr. Vandana Shiva)
