Ask­ing Rad­hika Khanna to plan the party takes away the has­sle of set­ting up the per­fect bash. Her team man­ages the en­tire evening—from bring­ing in glasses and mix­ing drinks to heat­ing pre-cooked food, serv­ing and clean­ing up.

If you want just her khow­suey or Con­ti­nen­tal dishes, she of­fers that as well. Khanna started Lo­tus Blos­som nine years ago to help Mum­bai plan at-home par­ties. “I re­alised that peo­ple are work­ing long hours and hav­ing a party at home can be tough,” she says. She filled in that gap with a menu of largely Thai fare of “homely good qual­ity of­fer­ings” and desserts, and has now in­tro­duced Mediter­ranean and Euro­pean cui­sine.

Lap it up Fes­tive menus in her kitchen fo­cus on “end­less ap­pe­tis­ers” with am­ple va­ri­ety which guests can munch on through­out the evening such as fried fish cakes, dumplings and pa­paya salad in shot glasses. Khanna’s menus are high on cus­tomi­sa­tion as well, so be it an ayurvedic menu, which she re­cently did in consultati­on with a food ex­pert from Rishikesh, to sourc­ing in­gre­di­ents for Sin­ga­pore’s Na­tional Day cel­e­bra­tions, Khanna does it all.

On the menu Sea­sonal cock­tails and bite-sized por­tions are pop­u­lar dur­ing fes­tive gath­er­ings.

PRICE Rs 12,500 for 10 peo­ple for food
