Dawat Yan Banquet is proud to present Dawat-e-Biryani, a collaboration between banquet co-host, Mariam Magsi and her beloved, Gordan Sumanski.
Biryani has the ability to bring people together. The yield is large, enough to satisfy all that partake in the eating of this layered, complex, historical and dynamic rice-based dish. Biryani is enjoyed in a variety of unique ways. In some parts of South Asia, like in the Sindh province of Pakistan, it is consumed with potatoes, while in other parts of the continent, such as South of India, it is eaten with eggs. Depending on the area, community, province and even family, within Pakistan itself, Biryani is created and consumed in many diverse ways, and there are healthy rivalries and culinary competitions amongst varying communities, about whose is the most authentic.
Dawat-e-Biryani was developed with the support of the AGOxRBC Artist in Residence Program, 2022
