All Things Nice curated a culinary tour with Wild Kitchen Chef Clayton Donovan and musician Darren Middleton. The duo has just recently teamed up to create Tuning Fork, a unique food and music dining experience that travels around the globe. Australia’s highest acclaimed Chef along with guitarist and song writer from the iconic Australian band Powderfinger presented two nights of indulgence and pure fun at the Grand Hyatt Mumbai and The Pullman New Delhi Aerocity. Their tour to India will continue to be one of the highlights of our culinary driven events; it was truly a unique fine dining experience.
In Mumbai, Chef Donovan collaborated with the very talented Jef Foster, Executive Chef at Grand Hyatt Mumbai to create an extra ordinary 5 course dinner paired with a selection of wine and spirits by Sommelier Nikhil Agarwal. Both Chefs worked their magic to create unique dishes with an influence of local Indian produce and indigenous Aboriginal ingredients like the chilled pea & native mint soup with a jamun berry sorbet, lamb loin with native spice rub with a wattle seed jus and pepper berry crème brulee, raspberry coulis with wattle seed ice-cream. The dishes resembled works of art with meticulous plating by Chef Foster, a true treat for the senses.
“The authentic ingredients and curated recipes truly showcase the food philosophy we believe in – food thoughtfully sourced and carefully served; I enjoyed curating an exquisite menu with Chef Clayton for this splendid evening. I am sure, our guests loved the experience as much as we are enjoying working on it,” says Jef Foster, Executive Chef, Grand Hyatt Mumbai.
The wines and spirits served with the dinner at Grand Hyatt included Chandon Brut, Fratelli Vitae Sangiovese, Domain Barons de Rothschild Los Vascos Chardonnay, Nederburg The Wine Master’s Reserve Shiraz, York Sauvignon Blanc, Grovers La Reserve Blanc, Sula Rasa Cabernet Sauvignon, De Bortoli Family Wine Makers Woodfired Heathcote Shiraz, K1 Sauvignon Blanc, GMH Pinot Noir and Patron XO Cafe Dark Cocoa.
The evening was a celebration of culinary genius, with Chef Foster and Chef Donovan joining forces to bring an extra ordinary experience to Mumbai!
