When I got the invite for a live cooking event organised by Four Seasons Wine, the foodie in me got excited. When you have live cooking, wine pairing and have some wonderful bloggers around on a Sunday noon, you know it is going to be a laid back and engaging noon and it turned out to be one king of good times! After all it has to be since Four Seasons Wine is part of UB group.
So last sunday myself and my partner-in-wine-and-dine, Sanjiv managed to push our lazybones to arrive at the venue at Royal Orchids Hotel. That the event was being held at the roof top with a good city view and a pool on the side cheered our senses much before the wines and food set in and the warm Bangalore weather was perfect for such lazy noon.
Shamita Singha, Ex-Miss India-Miss Earth and brand ambassador of Four Seasons Wine kickstarted the event with a brief wine talk that included introduction to Four Seasons Wine, various wines in their portfolio and briefly delving into food and wine pairing. Unlike some other celebrity brand ambassadors this lady sure knows what she talks and was quiet engaging in her informal talk.

Then it was time for Shamita to leave us with the Master chef to engage in live cooking. From Thai Veg curry based on pea aubergine to grills and chicken breast barbeques, the open air kitchen was engaging and fun activity. Few of us even got our hands on cooking under the chef’s hawk eyes and all was fun with wine, food and talk!
Overall it was a wonderful noon with loads of fun, food and wine amidst endless talks! And my pick of the wine? Four Seasons’s Sauvignon Blanc.
