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.
