The February chill is starting to thaw, flowers are blooming, and that can only mean one thing: spring is coming. As the grey begins to ebb, Cinnamon Kitchen has announced the return of its immensely popular House of Holi, celebrating the Hindu festival of spring in a fabulous display of colour.
Bigger, better and brighter than ever, Cinnamon Kitchen implores you to leave the dull, grey city at the door, and enter House of Holi, their purpose-built party pod, for thirty minutes of paint-pelting friends, family and everyone in between.
If you know anything about Indian culture, you’ll know that no celebration goes without a feast, and Cinnamon Kitchen have provided exactly that. A vibrant five-course Holi menu showcase an array of dishes which include lentil-stuffed wheat bread with yoghurt, tamarind and pomegranate, grilled Kentish lamb escalopes with black stone flower and smoked paprika raita, Tandoori mushroom with mustard greens and chickpea bread, and king prawns in coconut and cardamom curry. To leave you with the sweet taste of warmer climes to come, Chef Vivek Singh’s menu offers dessert such as pistachio burfi and fig semolina halwa.
The perfect antidote to dark evenings in the city, this year’s additions include a pop-up bar serving Holi-inspired cocktails. The Holika Fire boasts apple back, fresh lime and homemade grenadine, whilst the Neela Heera features Broker’s Gin, Maraschino liqueur, Crème Yvette and fresh lemon, all available alongside India’s favourite beer Kingfisher. We’ve never looked forward to getting so messy.
Cinnamon Kitchen’s House of Holi runs from 7-18th March 2017, tickets here
