Zomato's First Masterclass in Kolkata at SpiceKraft

Zomato recently invited some of us ladies for its 1st masterclass in Kolkata - a mixology workshop at Spice Kraft on the occasion of International Women's Day.

After a hectic day at work and a little bit of pampering from the men in office, I was really looking forward to the evening as it was my first Zomato meet up experience. What's better was that I was invited to their first ever Zomato Masterclass in Kolkata :) A big thank you to the team for this. 

Though I came in late after work,I was greeted by an ever welcoming Zomato team and the hospitable staff of Spice Kraft. Chef Sambit Banick, Head chef of Spice Kraft was already at work by then. Chef,who holds an MBA degree from XLRI,had his table set up to show all the ladies in the house how to make the perfect coktails.

We were served the mulled wine, a warm spiced red wine which is a European favourite during the winters.Chef informed us that by simmering the wine on low heat with spices, citrus fruits and honey, the alcohol content of the wine decreases but is perfect for those chilly winter evenings.

Next was the Classic Cosmopolitan, a ladies favourite which could not have been missed out in a room full of beautiful ladies ;) Chef showed us how to put together the perfect glass of cosmo with the help of a cocktail shaker, an absolute must when making cocktails.On the table next,was Utterly Butterly Jameson, a concoction of peanut butter, Jameson Irish Whiskey, Amul cream and Hershey's Chocolate Syrup. A cocktail with chocolate was new to me :)

The next cocktail used a handheld smoking gun. It was the Apple Wood Smoked Guava Mary which is a molecular gastronomy delight.

Along with these lovely cocktails were some extremely delicious appetizers. There was the Kele ke phool ke croque monsieur, Subj ki Galawat, Vietnamese  Khao Tay Potatoes, Lebanese Dajaj Chermoula, Beer Can Temoura Fish. 

My favourite was the Lebanese Dajaj Chermoula, a lovely chermoula spiced grilled chicken, which is also extremely healthy. You have to visit Spice Kraft to try this one out ! Amongst the drinks, mulled wine was the absolute winner :)
