Hotels urge govt to bring veg-only culinary courses
NEW DELHI: Handling meat and eggs is considered a given at culinary institutes but what about aspiring chefs who would not want to even touch non-vegetarian items because of their religious or ethical beliefs?
The Indian Heritage Hotel Association (IHHA) and some other groups representing hotels have approached the union tourism ministry urging it to run vegetarianonly degree programmes in some hotel management institutes.
Headed by Gaj Singh II of the erstwhile royal family of Marwar, the IHHA has 140 hotels, including Jaipur’s Diggi Palace and the Neemrana Fort Palace, as its members.
