Hindustan Times (Gurgaon) - City - - LIFESTYLE - Nikita Sax­ena

Guests don­ning gar­lands and flo­ral head­gear, de­lec­ta­ble fare, and warm hospi­tal­ity by Pa­cific na­tions — this re­cent event in the Cap­i­tal was a sen­sory treat.

“The Pa­cific is a long way off from here. Thus, tonight was in­tended to high­light the food, cul­ture, bev­er­ages and the di­ver­sity of the re­gion,” said Joanna Kemp­kers, high com­mis­sioner of New Zealand to In­dia.

As for the high­lights from the buf­fet spread, there was fresh yel­low fin tuna and prawns from Pa­pua New Guinea, Kava from Fiji, Aus­tralian lamb, and food cooked in a tra­di­tional earth oven in Kemp­kers’s back gar­den.

Present at the do were diplo­mats MaryKay Loss Carl­son and Mi­lan

Hovorka, am­bas­sador of Czech Re­pub­lic to In­dia, and Mex­i­can am­bas­sador to In­dia
