CHRISTMAS FEASTS AT DISHOOM
24TH NOVEMBER—23RD DECEMBER 2014
In every community, eating brings people together in celebration. We are particularly good at this in India. Celebrations generally have food right in the middle of them, leaving us all thoroughly sated and burping gently (considered a courteous gesture). And here in London, there is no greater occasion to celebrate with a feast than Christmas.
We get very excited about this time of year. Our Bombay in London Christmas feasts are honestly some of the best food and drink we ever do.
Gently spiced mulled wine. Chai Egg Nog (really!). Warming Winter Pimm’s. A whole turkey leg, prepared in the traditional Indian raan style, cooked slowly over a day until meltingly tender, served with a spicy cranberry chutney. And finishing off with Christmas pudding with spiced brandy butter…
Our Christmas feasts bring large groups together, dining from thaals (large communal plates) laden with food. Small Plates, Grills, Biryanis and slow-cooked Turkey Raan are shared by everyone at the table, enhancing the warmth that brings you all together for a meal.
