A blog post dedicated to undhiyu. No I haven’t lost my mind…yet. It’s just my way of shouting my love for undhiyu out to the world from the rooftops. My love affair with all things gujju is rampant and undhiyu tops the list (closely followed by garba and chaas).
Undhiyu definitely ranks in my top 5 food items of all times. I would happily cut an undhiyu cake on my birthday. Or get undhiyu scented candles as a gift. Okay, so you get the gist…
I love my wine. The only alcohol I can wholeheartedly enjoy is wine. So when the awesome Hetal Lakhani (@Gujjucactus on twitter) invited me for a wine tasting event at Out Of the Blue, Bandra I jumped. And the fact that is was organised in conjunction with Nikhil Agarwal of All Things Nice got me even more excited. I’ve heard so much about the various wine tasting and pairing events they organize, I surely knew I wanted to go try this.
This event was a pre-cursor to the Wine week that is following up from the 17th to 23rd February 2014. During the entire duration of the week, wine lovers can enjoy set courses of food and wine pairings at a number of restaurants around the city. These pre-decided menus are otherwise unavailable. And if you really enjoy what your drinking, you can take home the wine at a 30% discounted rate. How cool is that!! For more information check out their website The setting was relaxed and fun. A group of around 20 of us wine aficionados were present from the ages of 25-75! There’s no age limit to enjoy a glass of wine. The event was open to the public at no cost. So anyone could come and enjoy an evening of wine, conversations. learning and break bread with like-minded people.
