Chef Wilson Gomes and Sommelier Patrick Walsh will host a dinner at Indya Bistro where they will be matching six wines with six of Indya Bistro's signature dishes. I must say that I've never really thought of having wine with Indian food. The strong spices and chilli tends to make it hard to match. I guess that's why beer tends to be the choice for most people, including myself. I'll be extremely interested to see what flavour profiles can be obtained.
I'll be attending the dinner so I hope to see you there and we can all explore the new art of matching wines to Indian food.
