Our new cuisine consultant - Tapasi Dhar Chowdhury, has  a keen interest in beauty, fashion, interior designing and food. Infact the finer aspects of life always is of interest to her. Her love for food and her interest in creating a variety of dishes over the past 20 years made her venture outside and share with the world her love for multi cuisine delights. So came up with Khanar Henshel, a niche and authentic catering service, with the sole objective of cooking multicuisine specialities with fresh stock, traditionally grinded spices in 'sil-nora', and purified water. She always had a soft corner for the traditional dishes of Bengal which are slowly eluding the present generation or are not being cooked for want of time by increasingly nuclear families.
