The China-Japan Debate On A Plate

Johnnie WalkerLast night I had the opportunity to attend "The China-Japan Debate On A Plate" at Pan Asian, ITC Sonar, Kolkata, the "Greenest Luxury Hotel Chain in the World".
Even you can attend this dinner full of oriental delights from 7th-10th November, 2013 and decide which way the debate sways for yourself. Put in your words here to get a chance to win signature culinary experiences - http://wcom.in/chinajapandebate



Look at the photos to salivate and then get dressed and head over to ITC Sonar. These are the things I had. There are other options as well (even for vegetarians). The menu is crafted carefully so that each dish whether from China or Japan, sits in perfect harmony with each other. Each dish is paired with a blend from Johnnie Walker.
Master chefs at play - Contemporary Japanese Expert Chef Vikramjit Roy offers modern Japanese contemplations on the menu while Corporate Chinese Chef Liang Xiao Qing has traditional Chinese classics on the menu.
The experience is enhanced by Johnnie Walker XR21's rich flavors which has been aged for at least 21 years. And I must add for all whiskey haters that this is the best blend I have ever tasted. So, you must give it a try.
Raveen Misra, Regional Brand Ambassador, Diageo India was our host for the evening, full of hearty conversations and a passion for whiskey and food :).

P.S. - Thank you to Poorna for thinking of me.

And here's a little something for those who have fantasised about Begbie a.k.a Mr. Rumplestiltskin a.k.a Robert Carlyle to give them a little history lesson .. It's about Mr. John Walker and his legacy.
