CANADA. Diners at Toronto Pearson International Airport’s Marathi restaurant will be given free spice and recipe kits to take home from Monday 10 December.

Marathi Executive Chef Paul George has created the spice kits for passengers visiting the Indian restaurant in Terminal 1. George, who was born in Cochin, southern India, serves classic dishes such as butter chicken as well as more contemporary dishes including naan panini and black tiger shrimp vindaloo.

Spice kits will be given to diners visiting OTG’s Marathi restaurant at Toronto Pearson.

New cocktails will also be launched to complement the spice kits and recipe giveaway.

Marathi is part of hospitality group OTG, which runs more than 300 restaurant and shops in ten airports across North America.

Executive Chef Paul George has pioneered the promotion.

Paul George said: “I’m really excited to be sharing my spice blends with our diners so they can take Marathi home and experiment with recreating some of our recipes for themselves.”    

Greater Toronto Airports Authority Vice President Customer and Terminal Services Scott Collier said: “Our partnership with OTG and the creative Indian cuisine featured at Marathi are a true reflection of the diverse tastes of our city.”

The promotion is scheduled to last three weeks.

The restaurant specialises in classic Indian dishes such as butter chicken.
