New Delhi: If one thought Indian cuisine cannot blend with the flavours of some exotic wine, then think again!
An event organised by Thnkmkt, Wednesday night at 27 Icon(Lodhi Road) was a completely bliss of food and wine fiesta.
The guests present were served with the best range of Grover Zampa wine paired with some lip-smacking North Indian cuisines, a specialty of 27 Icon.
And I am not kidding, the combination of the two was nothing short of revelation.
A lot of dishes were lined up for the evening, paired with some of the best hand-picked wines paired with each of the starters, main-course and and desert. Whether it be simple white wine, or red wine, each had it`s own unique taste. The four type of wine served for the night was received well by the guests.
They were enlightened about the different types of wine served. In ICON 27 guests guests were served the following wines : Art Collection Sauvignon Blanc, Art Collection Viognier, Art Collection Cabernet Shiraz follwoed by GZL flagship brand La Reserve.
