Happy Easter Calls for A Happy Meal!

Easter brings the childhood memories back, especially those that were all about yum food and painting eggs with your own childish imaginations. Thanks to the beautiful fine dine restaurants today that are able to revive the same cherished memories, in the most exciting way possible. The iconic 1911, of The Imperial Hotel, New Delhi recently invited us to experience it's super-lavish Easter Brunch Buffet that many of you might be enjoying at the hotel's iconic restaurant today...

While there is no doubt that when it comes to cultural celebrations, it's the food that plays the key role in bringing together the near and dear ones. But with the busy lifestyles, stepping out with families and sharing the same food midst some luxurious settings is all that's needed. Probably that's exactly what the chef Prem K Pogakula at 1911 restaurant had this in his mind when he curated such a crisp yet vast Easter Brunch buffet menu for this time. 

The buffet is a super-section of the best of world cuisines that one can relate to with Easter get-together. Although, families usually unite over some hams, some meats, some yum variety of non-veg delicacies, the chef at this iconic restaurant made sure to have some sumptuous selection of vegetarian food as well, which proved a bliss to us actually!

So, from Green chervil and broccoli as a perfect soup to start the review with, we tried, German potato salad, some masculine (wonder why this term :P) and caramelized walnuts that otherwise were served with ham. Well, we did miss the very mention of raising toast with a soothing mulled wine that fit well for this occasion. For the main course, which was all brought in course of time was Mediterranean grilled vegetable lasagna, Four cheese gnocchi gratin, torta pascualina with cherry tomato confit, Cabbage foogath and refreshing Herb rice. This particular course was a serious reminder of community style eating, on occasions like Easter where platters are served and we all love to share...

And, as they say any family food is never complete till the desserts are served, here as well the desserts were divine indulgence. The chef briefed that dishes like Mexican capirotada, Rum soaked Spanish rosquillas and Carrot cake are typical of Easter brunches, he also added his own version of hot chocolate that literally nailed the whole brunch experience.  

Lip-smacking Hot Chocolate
Yes, the picture that you see right next to this text was an experience that we are sure gonna cherish for years to comes. This hot chocolate. served with cutesy cheerios was lip-smacking despite the hint of red chilly. Oh yes, don't feel surprised, as the dessert was loaded with red chilly, Cinnamon and a good hint of staranise.. What a perfect note to end your Easter brunch on!!
