Celebrating the history of drink in India

Indian Harvest

 

Wine and Indian food? Yes!

The Eneri Access Series, with Indian Harvest Chef/Owner Sanjeev Pandey presents a dinner pairing wine and Indian fare at 5 p.m. Sunday, April 29, at the Naperville restaurant.

Colleen Taylor Sen, author “Curry: A Global Historyand other books, will speak on the history and changing attitudes towards wine and spirits in India, where even today several Indian states prohibit the sale and consumption of alcoholic beverages. However, India’s tradition of making and consuming alcoholic drinks dates back to the Indus Valley civilization in the third millennium B.C. and continued through the introduction of scotch by the British. Today, though, urban Indians are increasingly attracted by wine, and consumption is growing 30 percent a year.

A six-course menu paired with a global selection of wines features at the event. The evening is $75, and reservations with credit card are required.

Here’s the menu:

  • Vegetable samosa, green chaat salad, mixed kebab and tandoori shrimp with 2011 Matua Valley Sauvignon Blanc from Marlborough, New Zealand
  • Dry okra with spices, vegetable korma with 2010 Lindemans Bin 65 Chardonnay from Australia
