Give me books, French wine, fruit, fine weather and a little music played out of doors by somebody I do not know."

~ John Keats
The quote is just perrrfecttttt (madhuri style, Read – Jhalak Dikhla ja) for me.
You give a woman fabulous clothes, gorgeous shoes, arm candy bags and kissable lip gloss what would she do with it if there’s no place to wear them or flaunt them and for fashion bloggers am sure this goes a level up. This is what FOUR SEASONS did for us bloggers in Bangalore and the rest of the country. They organized a mouth-watering splendid dinner meet for the launch of their Four Seasons Wine. Now doesn’t that sound tempting?? Am sure it does and also my quote by John Keats now sits right. Prominent & very interesting people, amazingly healthy conversation, yummy food, wine and laughter it sure does make a fab evening and yes it certainly was a fab evening. I ve been longing to do this post, but due to some technical glitch this post never showed up on my blog but not too late its up here for you to read. The event organised by FOUR SEASONS was for pairing food with wine where they had 5 different red and white wines paired against a spread of a 3 course meal. Mr. Abhay Kewadkar, the head of UB- Four Seasons Wines and chief wine maker who hosted the evening not only gave us insights on wine and its consumption but also made sure everyone was in splits. We also had amidst us the celebrity chef Mr.Abhijeet sahai who enamoured us with his experiences on travel and wine. It was a fun filled evening at Fava UB city, Bangalore. This was one of a kind of experience and felt very French. Being a white wine lover, I was looking forward to having an array of it.
Lamb chops were served for the main course along with Shiraz and Cabernet Souvignon, both red wines. I never had the opportunity to have anything mutton with wine, so this was an experience in itself and my personal favourite was the shiraz, it didn’t dry off my mouth as wines have the capacity to dry your mouth. Shiraz happened to be a group favourite and everybody liked the pairing of it with the lamb chops.
Anything pink and I go all “Awwwww…” that’s what happened when the dessert arrived on the table. We were served Crème Brulee with peaches along with the very beautiful Four seasons BLUSH. Yes now that’s some name for a wine. It had a blend of rose and a very fruity fragrance to it. The concept of pairing a dessert with a sweet wine was fantastic. It just felt like the cherry on top of a cake and thus the evening came to an end with some wonderful conversation and insight into this beautiful concept of food pairing with wine.
I can’t thank Four seasons group enough for giving us bloggers this opportunity to have this sit down dinner paired with wine and sharing their over the years achieved wisdom on wine.

I am sure the pictures have spoken a thousand words, as it certainly was a splendid evening and for that I thank Four Seasons for enlightening us bloggers.
