Ministry of Tourism Plans Comprehensive Survey of Indian Cuisines

As part of setting up a national culinary institute, Ministry of Tourism, Government of India will soon launch a national survey on cuisines of India.  According to sources, the pilot programme will be flagged off from Delhi in the next couple of weeks’ time.  The objective of the survey is to retrieve and create a national databank of Indian culinary traditions, recipes, etc., and make it available for references, researches, etc.

The exercise of compiling the cuisines and their recipes will be done by the students and faculties of Institute of Hotel Management (IHM) under the National Council for Hotel Management & Catering Technology (NCHMCT) in every region in the country.  They will go to every village in the country and compile the data. “There is a set format for the survey and they will collect the information based on that format,” informed an official of the National Council.  The target is to compile at least 6,000 recipes initially, he added.

At a second stage, people behind these recipes will be invited to demonstrate the cooking before an eminent panel of chefs and will be recoded and kept for future references, the official said.
