In the last post I mentioned my visit to Cheri One Qutub. What was a random invite late one evening translated to a wonderful afternoon of pizzas, wine and conversation. The event kick-started with a short introduction to Four Season wine by Mr. Abhay Kewadkar, followed by a live cooking session by Chef Raman Kohli.
So while he cooked and people watched, Cheri’s ambiance made sure I strayed from the group. I headed for the roof hoping it offered a view of Qutub Minar (located right across the road from Cheri). I was disappointed, though. Cheri’s trees lend it a very serene feel, but also blocked the view to Qutub.
In hindsight, I think I’d take the greenery over Qutub. The roof was probably the best place to sit and enjoy a meal in peace, but it was raining so I took a couple of hurried shots and headed back in.
Inside, the live cooking and wine tasting continued.
Three wines were served with three courses. A sauvignon blanc with starters, a blush with the main course, and the prize-winning cabernet sauvignon (my personal favorite) with the dessert. To be perfectly honest, more than the food and wine, it was the photo-opportunity that kept me on my feet all day. Wine and wine glasses make beautiful subjects!
