The menu at the Aangan Restaurant was specially selected to match various dishes with the picks of the evening-Montes Alpha Chardonnay, Caballo loco No.7, Errázuriz max Reserva and Don Melchor. Earlier Anakena Riesling was served with finger snacks. Said Roger, ‘We know it is difficult to match wine with Indian food but we have had the executive chef Marcus tweak the dishes so as not to lose any flavour and yet make them more compatible with wines’.
The dinner was an ample testimonial of Mr. Heine’s impassioned talk about Chilean wines and how well they can match the food, with a little bit of help from the Chefs. The Hyatt service was immaculate as ever.
