This autumn, renowned London restaurants Farzi London and Cavita will combine their culinary expertise to serve up a showstopping, seven-course tasting menu combining the spice of India with the fire of Mexico, and championing two of London’s most exciting female chefs.
On 6th September, Farzi’s head chef Dhwani Agarwal together with owner and head chef of Cavita, Adriana Cavita will come together for one night only to indulge guests’ senses with an Indo-Mexican feast that showcases the indomitable talent of these two inspirational women of colour.
Born and raised in Mumbai, a city with a diverse blend of cultures, chef Dhwani Agarwal was inspired to become a chef by her uncle and trained under the 'Czar of Indian Cuisine', Jiggs Kalra. She moved to London in 2022 and now heads up contemporary Indian restaurant Farzi. For this special event, Dhwani has teamed up with Adriana Cavita, formerly of Peyotito and now heading up her eponymous Mexican restaurant Cavita in the heart of Marylebone, for what is set to be an unforgettable evening.
Priced at £75 per person, the menu has been carefully designed with dishes exemplifying the very best of what each cuisine has to offer, combined in bold harmony. Highlights will include Cavita’s signature Mooli Ceviche Mini Tostada amuse bouche alongside Agarwal's Aubergine Chokha, as well as Green Aguachile and Jalapeño Cumin Granita.
The main dish is a collaboration between the two chefs: Grilled Lamb Rump, Garam Masala and Mexican Mole, served with Dal Makhni and Cheese Kulcha – fragrant lamb paired with the heat of the mole to create a rounded, balanced dish packed with flavour. The evening concludes with Dhwani’s delectable Douceur Noisette, for a smooth and sweet ending to a sizzling night.
A vegetarian menu is also available and, for an extra £35, guests can enjoy an accompanying wine pairing chosen by the expert drinks team.
Farzi’s Head Chef, Dhwani Agarwal says: “We are so excited to be collaborating with Cavita this Autumn, inviting Adriana to Farzi for this one-night-only event. Adriana shares my passion for fun and flavourful native dishes that transport diners back to our homelands, with this latest evolution of our menu.”
