Bihar Tourism in association with the SAGA, Gurugram is making all-out efforts to actively encourage the culture, heritage, and cuisines of the state. It is a vision of our Hon’ble Chief Minister that every Indian thali should at least have a dish from Bihar in its serving. We are hopeful that this initiative shall indeed win the taste buds of everyone and will make them connect with Bihar’s Culture and Cuisine.”
The culinary adventure will be enhanced by elements of live bands, chat shows, and other Performances.
