“This is a Bengali festival thaali (platter) served during Durga Puja. Festivals are times when people reinvent their relationship with food. Festival food repertoires are designed to be rich and much. They reflect the human need for happiness and merry making and use food, among other things, to satisfy that need.” — Yudhajit Bhattacharjee
