MTR 100th Year Celebration Continues With 'MTR Karunadu Swada' At The Jayamahal Palace From May 4-5, 2024

Mavalli Tiffin Room (commonly known as MTR) restaurant opened in Bangalore in 1924 by Yagnanarayana Maiya. On its 100th year, continuing with celebrations, it's back with the 3rd edition of its iconic Food Festival – MTR Karunadu Swada. This cherished food festival is being held on May 4-5, 2024 at Jayamahal Palace Convention Centre in Bangalore with an aim to delight the hearts of consumers and make them experience often-forgotten recipes from various parts of Karnataka. The festival was inaugurated by Hon’ble Mr. Justice N. Santosh Hegde, Former Solicitor General of India. Also present were Sanjay Sharma, CEO of Orkla India, Sunay Bhasin, CEO MTR and members of the founding Maiya family. 

Under the leadership of MTR’s cuisine centre of excellence, over 50 home chefs are showcasing more than 100 dishes from six regions of Karnataka, including Uttara Karnataka, Kodagu, Dakshina Kannada, Kalyana Karnataka, Udupi and Hale Mysuru, taking the attendees on a sensory journey through the state's culinary legacy. MTR Karunadu Swada is a one stop celebration of Kitchens across Karnataka, using locally sourced ingredients, unique spice blends and recipes passed on through generations.

On this occasion, the brand is extending this unique experience beyond the food festival by launching a special recipe book which is inspired by the dishes showcased at the festival. The book features a curated collection of over 100 forgotten recipes from Karnataka, allowing people to recreate these forgotten dishes at home.

Mr. Sunay Bhasin, CEO MTR, expressed his thoughts, “MTR Karunadu Swada is born out of MTR’s love for the food and culture of Karnataka. It is a celebration of Karnataka's diverse flavours and our commitment to uphold the rich culinary heritage of the state. With evolving consumer needs and fast-paced lifestyles, we've inadvertently lost touch with traditional recipes and flavours that once defined our culture. This food festival serves as a bridge back to our roots, a heartfelt effort to preserve a piece of Karunadu heritage through these treasured dishes.”

In addition to the gastronomic experience, the event features celebrated Karnataka dance forms like Yakshagana and Dollu Kunitha, making it a complete cultural immersion, and highlighting Karnataka's vibrant artistic traditions.
