ST. LOUIS, Nov. 30, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- Authentic Indian cuisine is now available for guests planning business engagements, social events and weddings hosted by the Renaissance St. Louis Grand Hotel. By making the menu options available, the downtown St. Louis hotel has identified a way to improve service to guests who plan traditional Indian weddings.

Before Indian cuisine was added to the menu, guests who were planning a traditional Indian wedding at this hotel in St. Louis had to pay more to hire outside caterers. With the new additions to the menu, guests are able to save money and simplify their planning.

In order to make the catering option available, the hotel provided executive chef Tim Jansen and banquet chef Manfred Brandtner with hands-on training in preparing traditional Indian cuisine. The chefs spent time with culinary professionals in Mumbai to learn first-hand how to cook dishes that they could prepare for wedding receptions in St. Louis, MO. Some of the dishes they mastered include dal makhani to the most exotic curries.

The hotel even plans to purchase a tandoor oven to make traditional naan bread on-site. The development of the Indian menus is part of the hotel's commitment to its guests who are seeking a special venue for their wedding.
