Cigars - Better Than Cubans?

Spring in New York City is a celebration. As someone who divides his time between India and New York, I always make it a point to be in New York for April's cherry blossoms. While the morning is crisp, the day warms up by the afternoon, enough to get a barbecue going with good friends, a beverage of choice and, most significantly, cigars. Nitin Madan makes a persuasive case for non-Cuban cigars.

Steven_FICOFI.jpgFICOFI is a French luxury company established by Bordelais Philippe Capdouze in 1990, specialising in fine wine and related services, as do many other companies, but none in anything like the same manner, writes Steven Spurrier, pictured left, at a Le Club FICOFI dinner in Paris.


Bordeaux gears up to welcome tourists

Bordeaux_bridge.jpgNot too long ago the city of Bordeaux had little interest in wine tourism. The wine was sold through Bordeaux shippers and the wine estates did not encourage visitors.

Harshal entered the Master of Wine programme, while still in India, and calls it "an arduous, masochistic pilgrimage, leading to what some would regard as the pinnacle of wine qualifications."

Q&A with an Indian Wine Importer - Neethu Sheth

In 2007 she founded The Wine Rack, a company that imports wines from South Africa and New Zealand. Over the last few years she has seen many aspects of the industry change and in some ways become more difficult. Despite this, an innate passion for wine is what keeps her going. Edited excerpts from a Sommelier India interview:


The Bangalore Black Tie Club

black_tie_bangalore.jpgThere's so much more to fine dining than the food itself, as The Black Tie, a gourmet club now in its 15th year, demonstrates. When Stanley Pinto - jazz aficionado, bon vivant and purist, with a partiality for all things French - along with his good friends Shawqi Sultan and Saleh Talib, (pictured, left) founded The Black Tie in Muscat, Oman, he was pursuing his own ideals of connoisseurship in fine dining, writes Kaveri Ponnapa.
