Fusion between Mediterranean and north Indian cuisines, the city of Bukhara was at one time ruled by the Mughal empire (modern day Uzbekistan). The destination of key silk trade routes, it was the melting pot between the far east and Mediterranean cultures. After the great power vanished so did much of its culinary inventions, except for those that were passed on among families. Bukhara’s Chef Joginder Cheema shares his saved and savored recipes with you. Bukhara’s special spice combinations and sauces complement and help emphasize main dish ingredients. Everything is created fresh daily, from scratch and are best suited for a milder pallet but can be turned up a notch without sacrificing flavor.
