Many friends old and new joined us on November 15th to celebrate the arrival of Beaujolais Nouveau at Purple Poppadom.
Chef created a special tasting menu for the occasion and of course guests were able to enjoy a glass or two of the young French wine with their dishes.
We were especially pleased to welcome our good friends Mark and Carol Adams. AKA @gomezadams and @babettesffest on Twitter, the couple are Tweeters/Food Bloggers extraordinaire and we always welcome their feedback about our cuisine.
So much so that chef named a dish on the Beaujolais menu in Carol’s honour. The story is that Carol has been encouraging Anand to create a dish using goat and lobbied him to acquire some to experiment with.
True to his word, Anand devised ‘Chèvre Rajasthani Babette’ – a classic dish of slow cooked leg of goat with garlic and spices, smoked with cloves and red chilli. We are so pleased that our friends were able to join us for this lovely evening.
