As winters are here and so are the festivities and celebrations. I have been to many places last week and would love to share what’s happening around the city.
Christmas Festivities at Bella Cucina
Bella Cucina has kicked off the festive season in style. Le Meridien has launched a 10-day promotion festival. It is winter special and includes festivity special dishes that can be enjoyed at their award-winning restaurant – Bella Cucina. Food is definitely superior as Chef Amit has shown his skills and capability. The perfect al dente risotto will make you understand his style of perfection. Don’t miss this festival, you will surely love it!
Tea Tasting at Crown Plaza Mayur Vihar
Crown Plaza Mayur Vihar recently hosted a tea tasting session with Tea Sommelier, Anamika Singh to celebrate International Tea Day. It’s always a pleasure to meet Anamika Singh and her passion for tea is fantastic. An afternoon to remember where we learned nuances of tea making and what to avoid during the making of tea. I am also very thankful to her as I have developed taste and yet there is more to discover. I have stopped using tea bags! We also learned that how important is to know the source of tea. It’s as complicated as wine and we should pay attention to the source as well. My favorite tea that day was Russian Breakfast tea. It’s was an excellent afternoon session organized by IHG and Crown Plaza.
Tasting India Symposium
One of the take-ups from the event was to include millets in our meals. They had been part of our food, 30-40 years ago and after green revolution, we forgot about it. I was very impressed by the Agri Ministers Gowda’ speech and his knowledge of millets. The Millet Lunch was curated by Slurrp farm and AnnaMaya , Andaz Delhi. Slurrp farm, founded by Shauravi Malik and Meghana Narayan is promoting millets and their products are selling like hot cakes. Lunch was delicious and I also realized that it’s high time we should start using millets. Chef Vipul Gupta of AnnaMaya, Andaz also uses millets at his restaurant and they are quite popular.
Launch of Terrace Grill, Country Inn and Suites, Gurgaon
An evening combined with whiskey tasting session followed by the launch of Terrace grill, I couldn’t have asked for the better evening than this. The terrace grill is the perfect place to unwind yourself, enjoy a couple of drinks and taste some lip-smacking food. Anirban Sarkar, GM is a very hands-on manager and his involvement was quite visible. I would love to go back there to have the couple of drinks, some finger food, and chill by the pool. Sector 29 definitely needs the place like this which is not so overcrowded.
New Menu Launch at Coffee Day Square
Square, the premium version of CCD recently launched their new beverage menu along with some international favorites as snacks. Keeping in mind, the interest of people and their growing love for coffee, they have not only come up with interesting twists to coffee but also presented food in an interesting way. The single origin coffee with some interesting shakes and coffee drinks for people who love having coffee – ‘Luscious Smoothies & Shakes’, ‘Soulful Sips’, ‘Virgin Cocktails’, ‘Refreshing Teas’, and not to forget ‘Cocoa Excess Shake’. I am sure new menu at Square will definitely impress you and you will love your coffee even more J.
