What happens when a chef from San Francisco meets a sommelier from Mumbai? A wine dinner, of course. Chef Rupert Blease, who runs a Michelin-star restaurant, Lord Stanley, and Mumbai’s Nikhil Agarwal will host a gourmet experience with tartlets, glazed butternut and roasted duck paired with Chardonnay, rosé and more. Blease is known for clean flavours inspired by British and European cuisine flecked with influences from Japan. Consider this ingenious dessert: Mango rose with lime and passion fruit, chilled soup scented with lemongrass. It will be the last item in the five-course menu at The Taj Mahal Palace in Mumbai this weekend. For reservations, call 9820698883/ 9911722334.
