"Indian Food and Wine" Book by Michael Swamy and Nine Hills | The Opening Of Cafe Delhi Heights, Cyber Hub,Gurgaon

Sunday 25 May 2014 / , , , , , , , , , , ,

Cyber Hub  has become  the new corporate leisure center, representing distant future, and is a diners paradise !  Food and wine connoisseurs, restaurant hoppers, shoppers ,you name it, and its the most popular hangout zone even for us delhities !
Cafe Delhi Heights, is one of my favorite eating places, and when I got an invite By Nine hills to witness the launch of  an exclusive book to pair Indian food with wine, I couldn't resist the temptation ...
Michael Swamy , an Indian Chef and food stylist is the proud author,of the book titled- "Guide to pairing Indian food and Wine"  was present to talk about the inspiration, and infact churn out few recipes from the book, and show off some cooking skills in a quick demo of some of the stellar Recipes ! It was fun to know that the key to making the  best matches are an open mind and sheer intuitiveness, and which comes from experience.
It is the first book in the wine category in India that takes a holistic look at pairing of the flavors, textures and heat levels of Indian food, with wine. 
I was quite surprised when he talked of pairing wines unlike the classic combos of Stilton cheese, but rather one could go ahead and experiment it by bringing the most authentic Indian dishes or street food combos and make them marry to suit our palette  !
This event also marked the opening of cafe Delhi heights Cyber hub, Gurgaon and if you ask me my favorites from the menu, we have a great conversation promised ahead.
