Project Tiryagyoni – Vision and Origin
Chefs Soundararajan and Sanjay Thakur have conceptualized an experience that is bound to create history and a Guinness Book record for the highest pop-up restaurant.
The seed for Tiryagyoni was sown in 2016 by Chef Sanjay Thakur while in the midst of Project Himalayan Soil. He realized the impact forests had on our future and appreciated an urgent need to promote them. There are a plethora of indigenous valuable ingredients offered by Mother Nature. One could witness a slow and continuous depletion of the treasured reserves that had an adverse impact on climatic changes. Highly prevalent unscientifically framed Organic dining concepts have swept over the global market. This made Chef Thakur conspicuous to the fact that a positive intervention is imperative.
Being a member of the Indian Federation of Chefs Association, Chef Thakur took up the concept with Chef Manjit Gill and Chef Soundararajan. With enthusiastic support from them, the incubation of Project Tiryagyoni commenced. Project Tiryagyoni is dedicated not only in conserving Mother Nature but also reviving the respect of long-lost Indian and Nepalese cuisines that has an illustrious 8000-year history. Chef Thakur also wanted guests to have a memorable dining experience at the highest altitude.
Between 24th May – 05th June 2018, 10 diners will be part of this record-setting expedition and will experience the culinary journey that will have a well-researched and crafted menu by the two renowned chefs. This will surely exalt dining experience to new heights.
Foraging will be the initial part of the trek where the group will trek their way to the base camp collecting valuable herbs and other ingredients that nature offers. The fresh unadulterated ingredients will be blended in a twist of spices where cuisine is not bounded by Boundaries.
