Guests at OTG’s Marathi Indian restaurant at Toronto Pearson International Airport (YYZ) will score free spice kits this holiday season. The kit includes a wide selection of spices along with the executive chef’s recipe for chicken biryani, and will be distributed for three weeks beginning Dec. 10.

“Indian cooking has big flavors, but the secret is actually in the delicate balance of blending spices,” says Executive Chef Paul George. “I love to visit spice markets all the time and it’s my own point of pride to find the best, whether from India or our local community, to customize my own personal blend for each dish we serve at Marathi. 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.”

OTG will also be launching new cocktails inspired by the chef’s flavorful food, including the Jitney Julep made with bourbon, orange bitters and coriander syrup.
