News & Views Atul Kocchar helps launch Zafran in Kuwait


One of the Middle East’s leading retail and hospitality conglomerates, the Landmark Group, reached another significant milestone, with the launch of a new Indian restaurant, Zafran, in Kuwait this June, following on from the success of the existing Zafran in Dubai. Landmark says it has plans to open 10 more Zafran restaurants in the Middle East region in the next three years. The official opening in Kuwait City was attended by Michelin-starred Atul Kochhar, who has created the restau- rant’s menu. Prominent local dignitar- ies, VIP guests and local media were also present during the launch, along with Landmark senior management.


Signature dishes at the restaurant include Zafrani Jhingae, Kali Mirch Ka Murgh and Rogan Josh and selec- tion of the Tandoor. The dessert menu features Akhrot Wala Chaklet and Kalakand Brulee. Naveed Dowlatshahi, the head of Landmark’s Foodmark division, says, “People in Kuwait are very appreciative towards good food, and we have been receiving a lot of positive feedback with the recent launch of Carluccio’s. So we saw fit to further expand by giving Kuwait a taste of Indian culinary with the launch of Zafran.”


Patak’s feels the heat


Patak’s has launched a new ‘Hot & Spicy’ range of sauces, in response to the growing consumer demand for hotter food. Research has shown that British consumers are eating food over 400 times hotter than during the 1960s, and this is reflected in the 20% rise in sales of hot food products over the last year.


The new range has three variants, hot Tikka Masala, extra hot Vindaloo and extra, extra hot Phal. Overall the new Hot & Spicy range is intended to comple- ment the current portfolio of Patak’s sauces, which now claim over 20% of the UK sauce in glass jar market.
