The mention of Burgundy conjures up images of lush French countryside blessed with scenic expanses of vineyards that produce some of the most exquisite and expensive wines of the world. Also, Burgundy's traditional cuisine, which is a melange of local household favourites to delicacies that originated in royal kitchens of France is not less illustrious either.
But, rarely do we see Burgundy's gourmet offerings showcased in depth in Mumbai. So if you want understand what Burgundy cuisine is all about, then 'An Evening in Burgundy' or simply the Burgundy food and wine trail at Le Cirque Signature at The Leela Mumbai is the perfect setting to commence your Burgundy exploration, both in terms of wine as well as food. Chef Lorenzo Severini, Chef de Cuisine at this Franco-Italian specialty restaurant is unravelling culinary marvels of Burgundy this month in Mumbai through a very specially curated menu.
The gastronomy of North-west Frontier lands of the Indian subcontinent entails food from the regions in and around Lahore, Peshawar, Kabul and Kandahar. I am fascinated with the culinary style of these lands as contemporary creations of Mughlai food we experience in restaurants today have born out of recipes of kebabs, breads and pulaos originating from this North-west Frontier cuisine.
Chef Mujeebur Rehman has curated a special spread inspired by flavors from culinary styles of the aforementioned places as part of dinner buffet until Sunday 5th Nov at Bayview. So, I immediately jumped at the opportunity to savour some rich and delectable preparations before the festival concludes.
Here is a look at my gluttony with some of the North-west Frontier cuisine speciality dishes as part of the dinner buffet at Bayview:
