Cambodia’s flavours, fruity and spicy, sweet and sour. Georges Rhumerie is a story about family and the love of cooking. George started a few years ago with ten different recipes of infused rum. His native island, La Reunion inspired the amazing flavours, but each have a Cambodian touch.
In this land bursting with tropical fruits and hot chillies a passion quickly grew. Paired with the need to share a piece of his country Georges was compelled to create a full range of preserves (jams, chutney and chilli pastes) to accompany the infused rums.
The results were delicious so Georges couldn’t be stopped here. Georges Rhumerie production, Show Room, Restaurant & Bar are all experiences that compliment each other, we are a family and we welcome you to our slice of home.
We have fine gifts in the form of our delicious rums and preserves, which come in adorable ethical packaging. You will find the perfect gift to take home to your friends and family. In the spirit of sharing, jams, chutney and chilli pastes are available for free tasting at Georges Rhumerie – Siem Reap.

All of our rums are expertly matured for a minimum of 6 months and come in 10 exotic and exciting flavours. From the fiery to the fresh, we will have the flavour for you.

Chutney
CHUTNEY- An Indian inspiration, we have enhanced this cultural favourite with the addition of Cambodian fruits. We highly recommend our chutney flavours (including papaya, pineapple and mango) to accompany almost any fish or meat meal.

wp-image-1857738464

Good Drop Wine Cellars is a specialist sparkling wine producer. Founded in 2009 by chartered accountant turned winemaker Ashwin Rodrigues who learned his craft in the Barossa Valley, Australia, our objective is be at the forefront of the Indian wine revolution. We do this by offering quality and value wines, tailor-made for the Indian wine drinker. We got off the blocks in 2010 by using contract winemaking facilities in Nashik, Maharashtra. Our own sprawling state-of-the-art winery was set up in 2013 at the Vinchur Wine Park, Nashik, Maharashtra. Our wines are available in Maharashtra and Goa and will be steadily expanding to new markets.

Ashwin Rodrigues -A founder of Good Drop Wine Cellars

At Good Drop we believe that India has tremendous potential to be a quality producer of wines. The world is sitting up and taking note as more and more serious drops come out of India. We see ourselves as the harbingers of this revolution. However if the base of the industry has to grow we need to make not just high-end wines but quality and affordable wines that are suitable for the local palate. Good Drop does exactly that and with a swirl of innovation. Rio has taken wine to the masses by making it a fun beverage at under a hundred rupees a pop. Our competitively priced Casablanca is India’s only Charmat method premium sparkling wine. It won the Indian Consumer Choice Awards 2015, a testament to our listening to our consumer’s needs. More recently we have acquired Good Earth Wines the brand as part of our strategy to be a complete wine producer. I’m happy that we’re on course to fulfill our vision of seeing India as a wine drinking and producing country, one glass at a time.

THE WINERY

A winery is the heart of a wine producer. In 2013 Good Drop Wine Cellars set up one of India’s most innovative wineries in Vinchur Wine Park, Nasik, designed for especially for sparkling wine production. A sprawling facility, it has a current tank capacity of 550,000 litres extendable to 2 million litres within the existing building. The entire building is a pre-fabricated structure using sandwich PUF panels, a first in India. The machinery is largely imported from Italy. The winery is equipped with a range of pressure vessels especially for Charmat, a method of sparkling wine production.

I was Invited for the Tasting of their beautiful Sparkling Wines and Rio Spritzers at Zodiac 24hrs Astral Coffee Shop in Fortune Select Dasve Lavasa.

There was huge array of Saturday Bubbly Brunch right from the live counters, Fresh Salads, Starters, Mains and Delicious Desserts. You need to have huge appetite to taste all of these along with the Bubbly Wines.

Good Drop Wines had two variants of wines to offer: Rose Spumante and Vino Spumante.

What are Spumante Wines: It is also called Asti or Asti Spumante It’s made from the Moscato Bianco grape.
Frizzante and Spumante are two wine words most associated with sparkling wine.
Both frizzante and spumante describe the level of effervescence (i.e. the strength of the bubbles) in a bottle of sparkling wine. Wines labeled ‘frizzante’ are what we call gently sparkling, while wines labeled ‘spumante’ are more effervescent and fully sparkling.

The carbonation in sparkling wine is created using one of two methods: Méthode Champenoise (Champagne method) or Metodo Italiano, which is also known as the Charmat-Martinotti method.

Good Drop Wines is made from the Charmat Martinotti Method. They are sweet and quite bubbly which you can feel it with every sip. My personal favourite is Vino Spumante – Its Sweet Mild and Bubbly. On the other hand Rose was bit Dry for me, wp-image-554387866wp-image-2084535738wp-image-2131941042wp-image-1160928272wp-image-2065034230wp-image-1807031249wp-image-900377540wp-image-271159453wp-image-1444210147wp-image-1229467812wp-image-1304003056it retained a slight sweetness although it’s not sugary sweet.

Next one in the line up was the Rio Spritzers- There were three flavours, out of which I could try two only. Lemon & Passion and the other one was Orange & Pineapple.

Rio- First Fizzy Wine in India to be packaged in affordable party drink with a pull-off cap.
I loved the Tangy and Refreshing Lemon & Passion Rio Spritzer. This was the Best ever combination till now I had in Alcoholic based Fruit flavour Drinks. All the Spritzers contains 8% v/v Alcohol.

Orange and Pineapple– This had Tangy and slight after taste of sweetness with every sip. Nice palish in colour.

Bubbly Brunch: As I mentioned earlier that the buffet spread was huge and one should have a good appetite for it. As per the brand standard the quality of the food was really good. The Staff is courteous and happy to help.

Savya Rasa – Epicurean Journey through Southern India. -Restaurant Review.

IMG_20170425_155506

Savya Rasa is a first of its kind dining experience that celebrates the epicurean journey of South India. Created with the intent of offering guests fine dine with exclusivity, their existence is about the re-creation of traditional cuisines and bringing them to a wider audience.

Team Savya Rasa have travelled extensively across the seven major culinary regions of South India and spent years learning from local sources to make sure that every dish they serve is authentic. Cultural aspects and attributes have been incorporated into the dining experience to help you rediscover the heritage and history that has helped shape South Indian culture.

Savya Rasa has a story on every wall of the Bunglow converted in to Fine dinning experience. They also give a Tour of the restaurant which takes back centuries of tradition and strong Indian Culture which is discovered by the team Savya Rasa. 

Savya means South and Rasa is derived from Sanskrit is work of art and flavour or essence of food.

This is a 62 seater place is divided in sections, two private dining rooms, a mezzanine section and an outdoor section with a Live/Open Kitchen 

I was Invited for the Bloggers Table for tasting of special Summer Menu or Mango Special menu. As we settled down the one of the staff asked me which type of water I would like to have from the standard Regular or Bottled and room temperate or cold, this was a new experience altogether they had Tulsi, Jeera or Khus? I opted for Jeera to start with, it was served at the room temperature or just above it.The staff is also have a Traditional south indian attire called veshti. 

The Main Menu has covered the 7 Main regions from South: 

Kongunadu: Kongu Nadu cuisine is predominantly south Indian with rice as its base and a collection of exotic recipes being created by the people residing in the Kongu region. Food is served over a banana leaf. Eating on a banana leaf is an old custom and imparts a unique flavour to the food and is considered as healthy. 

Idly, dosa, paniyaram and appam are popular dishes. Kongu Nadu cuisine does not involve marination of any raw material and as a result the food has a different taste and unique texture. Turmeric is added into curries which gives the product a deep yellow colour and an aromatic substance. Arisi Paruppu Sadam, made from a mixture of dal and rice is a recipe that existed from fourth century CE and unique to the area. Kaalaan is a popular dish prepared by simmering deep fried mushrooms (usually chopped mushroom) in a spicy broth, until it reaches a porridge like consistency and served sprinkled with chopped onions and coriander leaves.The traditional Kongu people were mostly vegetarians for religious reasonOppitu is a type of sweet made with the basic ingredients rice, sundal paruppu, palm jaggery, cardamom and ghee.

Nellore: Nellore is a very important producer of different agricultural products in South India. Being a prominent part of the state of Andhra Pradesh, Nellore is a place where one can find different kinds of spicy and tasty foods. As the district is one of the leading producers of red chilli, rice and millet in India, its influence can also be found in the food of Nellore. Both vegetables as well as meat and sea food feature prominently in the menus of the people of Nellore. Dal or lentils, and tamarind are largely used in cooking in Nellore. Various spicy and hot varieties of pickles form important part of the cuisine of Nellore.

Chettinad: The cuisine of this community called the Nattukotai Chettiars, or Nagarathars as they call themselves, from the Chettinad region of Tamil Nadu state in South India. Chettinad cuisine is perhaps the most renowned fare in the Tamil Nadu repertoire. It uses a variety of spices and the dishes are made with fresh ground masalas. Chettiars also use a variety of sun dried meats and salted vegetables, reflecting the dry environment of the region. Most of the dishes are eaten with rice and rice based accompaniments such as dosaisappamsidiyappamsadais and idlis. The Chettiars through their mercantile contacts with Burma, learnt to prepare a type of rice pudding made with sticky red rice. Chettinad cuisine offers a variety of vegetarian and non-vegetarian dishes. Some of the popular vegetarian dishes include idiyappampaniyaramvellai paniyaramkaruppatti paniyarampaal paniyaramkuzhi paniyaramkozhakattaimasala paniyaramadikoozhkandharappamseeyammasala seeyamkavuni arisi and athirasam.

Mangaluru: Mangalorean cuisine is largely influenced by the South Indian cuisine, with several cuisines being unique to the diverse communities of the region. Coconut and curry leaves are common ingredients to most Mangalorean curry, as are ginger, garlic and chili. Mangalorean Fish Curry is popular dish in Karnataka. Well-known Tuluva dishes include Neer Dosa,Masala Dosa,”Chicken Ghee Roast“,”Chicken Sukka“,Kori Rotti (dry rice flakes dipped in gravy), Bangude Pulimunchi (spicy sour silver-grey mackerels), Beeja-Manoli UpkariNeer dosa (lacy rice-crêpes), Boothai GasiKadubu, and Patrode. The Konkani community’s specialities include Daali thoybibbe-upkari (cashew based), val valavnas ambe sasamKadgi chakkopaagila podi, and chane gashi. Vegetarian cuisine in Mangalore, also known as Udupi cuisine, is known and liked throughout the state and region. Since Mangalore is a coastal town, fish forms the staple diet of most people.

 Mysuru: The Karnataka or Kannada Cuisine is one of the oldest surviving cuisines and traces its origin to Iron Age. The varieties of the karnataka cuisine has influenced the neighbouring states like Tamil Nadu, Andhra pradesh, Kerala and Maharashtra.

Indigo Delicatessen Viman Nagar Pune- A Conceptual Burgers & Sandwiches Tasting

           Indigo Deli and Carpe Diem invited me and fellow Foodies from The B Team for the exclusive tasting of their Scrumptious Burgers and Sandwiches from the Menu.

Evening started with the round of In house Speciality Drinks:

IMG_4845

 -Smoothie- Apple & Muskmelon : Wonderful combination of Apple and tender soft  Muskmelon gave impeccable and soothing taste.  

IMG_4831

– Slush- Strawberry & Basil: Basil strong enough to takeover all the flavours of the drink. Strawberry played an sweetening agent. 

IMG_4828

– Lemonade- Watermelon, Orange & Sage: This was really good, refreshing and thirst-quenching drink. Juiciness of Watermelon and tanginess of the orange juice gave a drink a distinct taste to it.

Chef Tushar has an enriching experience in the world of gastronomy and culinary arts so far and firmly believes that he learns something new everyday. He believes that cooking food is like creation of art and he loves experimenting with flavours and ingredients to create new dishes and make dining an unforgettable experience. He started his journey with Indigo Deli Colaba and now heading the Pune Indigo Deli.

He also shared his expertise by suggesting us to try something out of the box. 

Its a Burger Time: 

IMG_4846

  • Roasted Mushroom and Tofu Burger with garlic spinach on a five-grain bun: As Chef said this is the one of his favourite Burger from the menu but it’s an underrated burger from Indigo patrons… With the very first bite I felt the crunchiness and the juiciness till the last bite. I really wonder why this burger is not so popular. This burger was the most delicious burger of all. Burger was served with fresh salad portion along with the Potato Wedges. All the buns and bread are freshly baked daily in-house so the quality and the customisation as per the Dish is maintained.  

IMG_4853

  • Corn crusted, potato and jalapeño Burger with Creamy Feta on a Multi-Grain roll: This burger was one of the most demanded from the Menu. Burger Patty was much like the regular one with Creamy Feta made the difference in overall taste. Multi grain Bun was freshly baked. 

     Now its a turn for some Sandwiches: 

IMG_4859

  •  Roasted vegetables, mushrooms, garlic, spinach and swiss cheese: Comparing to burgers sandwiches were not that impressive. This sandwich had a bit of smoky flavours to Vegetables along with a good combo of garlic, spinach and Swiss Cheese which gave the real flavour.
  • The Deli Chili Cheese Toast cheddar, bell peppers, red onions and jalapeños, grilled in whole wheat bread: Regular Cheese Chilly toast stuffed with Bell peppers jalapeños Served with some fresh salads to go with it. 

Dessert Time: 

Ice Creams:

-Bailey’s (with alcohol) 

– Mocha and caramelised banana

– Strawberry cheese cake

– Banana peanut butter

– Dulce de leche   

Chocolate Mud Cake: Soft and tender loaded with berries which adds the juiciness to the cake. #Musthave  

Chocolate Whiskey Pate : This is the treat for the whiskey lovers… right from the first bite you get the strong taste of Whiskey and then the chocolate. This dessert beautifully made and it one of the best selling dessert from the menu. #Musthave 

All the Ice Creams were home made and they were really brilliant… very well blended with all the infused flavours. Personally I liked the Mocha and Caramelised Banana. #Musthave
