Here are some recipes curated by Swapnadeep Mukherjee, Executive Chef, The Metropolitan Hotel & Spa for friendship day
It’s always best to do it over a plate of food to chew on while we pore over our gossip and catch up with our pals on this friendship day to share new haircuts or their fresh life objectives. It feels good to offer something that we have prepared in our own kitchen, whether it be a snack while we watch one of our favourite films or a tasty supper to commemorate years of friendship. But what should we prepare for a gathering of friends?
