Most of us would traditionally tout curry and beer as the ideal pairing, a spicy jalfrezi alongside a cold pint is our default order. But it turns out our unadventurous habit may be causing us to miss a trick that’s holding back our Indian culinary enjoyment. Fear not, however, as an exciting collaboration between Gymkhana and Noble Rot is set to put the world to rights and transform our perception of curry for the better.
This month, the acclaimed Michelin star Indian restaurant, Gymkhana, and wine bar, restaurant and food magazine, Noble Rot, will team up for an exclusive event that introduces guests to the the sensational combination of curry and fine wine. The evening will be hosted by restaurant owner Sunaina Sethi alongside Noble Rot co-founders Dan Keeling and Mark Andrew as they take diners through a flavoursome six-course Gymkhana tasting menu accompanied by expertly-chosen wines. Dishes include many of Gymkhana’s most popular offerings such as silk kalongi scallops with spiced onion chutney and crisp pakora, and wild muntjac biryani with jewelled pomegranate and mint raita, washed down with a wide selection of digestifs such as new wave Chablis, Jura whites and Beaujolais cru.
The tasting menu will also remain open at Gymkhana until the end of March, just in case you miss out on the event or fancy sampling it over and over again!
The event takes place on Monday 27th February, bookings can be made throughout the evening between 5.30pm-10.30pm
