Indian Kebabs and Wine Tasting
November 11, 2022
India is most known for its spicy food, and curries. Very few people who have dug deeper into the cuisine would know that it’s also home to a wide variety of kebabs, which were brought to the country as a result of centuries of trade and history with the middle-eastern nations.
In this event, you will get a taste of the kebabs eaten in India, along with snacks Indians like to eat with alcohol. Be ready to be surprised by the flavours, and kebabs served and presented beautifully in your plates.
Pairing Indian food with wine is a challenge for most of wine lovers, yet in this tasting we will pair an authentic Indian menu with a diverse range of wines from countries like Slovenia, Cyprus, Hungary, Italy, Crete, Austria, giving you hints and detailed explanations on how to pair flavorful and spicy food with wines.
