The Golden Peacock celebrates Awadhi cuisine, the centuries-old cooking tradition native to the city of Lucknow in northern India. Infused with saffron and an array of colorful spices, it is an irresistible aromatic cuisine that draws influences from the culinary cultures of Central Asia, the Middle East, and northern India.
Awadhi cuisine is renowned for its Dum style of cooking. This style of cooking is when the meats and vegetables of each dish are slow-cooked in dough sealed containers over a very low flame. Shami kebabs, Galouti kebabs, Kakori kebabs, Seekh kebabs, Kormas and Pulao–all cooked in Dum style–are now synonymous with the city of Lucknow. “Tales of Awadh by The Golden Peacock” is an ode to the rich culinary heritage of Lucknow and a profoundly diverse cuisine rooted in a myriad of culinary cultures.
This exclusive array of dishes starts with entrées such as hazrat gunja ka chaat (heirloom tomato, assorted chickpea, cilantro, puffed rice, green peas, crispy vermicelli, potato), lobster and crab galoti (French Brittany blue lobster, Sri Lankan crab, cloves, cardamom, rose petal, sandalwood powder), or murgh paan ka neza (organic chicken supreme, saffron, fried onion, cashew nuts, smoked cardamom). Mains include keema ka burfi (Australian lamb, quail egg, almond, clarified butter, cinnamon, pistachio), machhli musallam (pomfret fish, organic prawn, poppy seed, coconut, almond, yoghurt, mace) and awadhi tarkari (French charlotte potato, heirloom baby carrots, dill leaves, haricot beans, baby corn), among others. For dessert, there is lucknowi makkhan malai (organic quinoa, ruby chocolate, assorted nuts, saffron, rose petal) and musafir lacchanaia (smoked cherry, organic chia seed, served with ice-cream).
The Golden Peacock serves artisanal Indian cuisine and has maintained its one Michelin star since 2014 with its impeccable dishes and faultless service.
