Pandi Degustation Reprise. The second edition of the pork pop-up went down yesterday. An eight course nose-to-tail dinner focusing on recipes from different corners of the country, with each course beautifully executed by @bigaddie and @ananditakamani, paired with craft beers. Thanks for all the help @nehasumitran and @vahishta!
Balancing a 25 tap direct draw draft system involves a whole lot of math but when done right rewards you with that perfect pour, pint after pint. The list of taps went up today after a long day in the walk in and multiple beer showers.
The hike up to Mullayanagiri gives a great perspective on the expanse of the coffee estates growing on the slopes of the Western Ghats. Altitude is commonly associated with the quality of beans, however this has more to do with the temperature than elevation. Arabica grows best at low temperatures and since there is a theoretical relationship between temperature, latitude and elevation, mountain slopes in the tropics have ideal growing conditions. #indiancoffee#chikmaglur#karnataka#coffee#arabica
Somewhere along Hwy 112 between Belur and Kodlipet driving through coffee plantations when @pooh_36 made us take a 60 km detour just to hunt down Kachampuli, a dark tart vinegar from Coorg used extensively in the Kodava dishes like Pandi Curry.
