Taste of India

Monday afternoon was the first time a few of us indulged in tasting Indian food, and may I state here and now that it was not only flavorful, but absolutely delicious. Are you intimidated by cooking Indian food? Well don’t be, after perusing the menu I felt confident that I could try my hand at preparing a few of the dishes such as Tandoori Phool {cauliflower florets with mint chutney} or Sarson da Saag {which are mustard greens and spices such as garam masala, ginger and garlic.

Visiting the Punjab Grill allows one to dine in luxury as if the invitation came from the Maharajah himself. The excessive interior is striking upon entering the restaurant, each room was assembled in India and then carefully transported in five shipping containers to the United States. The result is decadence at its best with white mother-of-pearl inlay walls, emerald chairs along with polished granite surfaces.

Before closing I must focus on an ornate dessert that was served with coffee; it’s a treat called “shahi tukra”, which is a mango mousse, kulfi and saffron bubble glass, and was most tasty.

Destination: London

It’s always fun to explore a city by daylight, but I have always loved the nightlife, and our team member Tony captured these beautiful shots of London last week. A few nightish activities to partake in while here are happy hour; jazz clubs, the theater and visiting the Sky Garden.Hyde Park is one of the largest parks in central London, divided by Serpentine Lake and is one of the Royal Parks. The park was the site of the Great Exhibition of 1851, and is a spot to get ideas for your own garden.

Travel stylishly,
