‘The World on a Plate’
The beautiful young Geetanjali Maheshwari, daughter-in-law of Suman Maheshwari (A’ wing) was a pleasure to watch, as she displayed her culinary talents in her picturesque garden in Indore, where she currently lives with her husband and two teenage children.
Since these were internationally favored recipes, Gitanjali started with a blend of different cheese, to create the French Cherry Tomato Basil Cheese Log, served with baguette or melba toast. The perfect start to set the taste buds salivating.
The Korean Bibim Bap Rice, was a happy mix of several vegetables stir fried separately and then mixed in the rice with spicy gochujang sauce. Just the dish to add spicy pep to the food.
Dessert was Coffee Biscoff Sandesh Mousse, leaving a sweet of India and the west. These were out-of-the-box recipes, with the Gitanjali touch. A thoroughly enjoyable visual afternoon, with many new dishes to try out.
Bon Appetite Ladies!
