For a special occasion

August 22 is celebrated as Madras Day. And on the occasion of the 366th year of Madras Day, ITC Hotel Park Sheraton is putting up a special counter at the dinner buffet at its restaurant, `The Residency', from August 22-28.

The non-vegetarian preparations are based on recipes taken from a cookbook published in 1877, written by an old lady resident of Madras with the idea of helping foreigners understand local flavours. The vegetarian dishes are culled from "Pakasastram," a 125-year-old recipe book that traces its origins to the Tamil Sangam literature.

The buffet is open for dinner from 7.30 p.m. to 11.30 p.m. For reservations call 24994101.
