A Wine Paired Japanese Indulgence
Wine Park & Four Seasons Hotel Mumbai pair up to offer a wine paired Japanese Menu for a splendid home family feast this weekend!
The delicate and nuanced flavours of Japanese food rate as among the world’s most ripe for wine pairing and Four Seasons Hotel Mumbai and Wine Park have done just that with their jointly curated wine matched menu, that will be available for home delivery this weekend.
Japanese food and wine pairing as an idea and trend has thrived the world over given the international popularity of Japanese cuisine. And over time, some relatively accurate pairing insights have emerged. For instance, the famous staples of sushi and sashimi that comprise raw fish and pickled vegetables need wines of fresh and clean flavours like light bodied sparkling and white wines like Riesling and Pinot Grigio. Further, grilled (Teriyaki) and fried dishes (Tempura) beckons for medium bodied texture and bright acidity which are boxes well ticked by the likes of new world Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Noir and Merlot.
This Japanese Menu crafted by the hotel’s Executive Chef Anupam Gulati is a veritable platter of Japan’s finest cuisine hits like spicy seafood sushi and teriyaki glazed seafood. Wine Park head and founder Vishal Kadakia has matched Chef Anupam’s Oriental spread with a range of new and old world ferments that best compliment and enhance the dishes with fruity and savoury expression.
