Jacob's Creek Our Table @ High
Jacob’s Creek is one of the most popular International Wine brands in India under the management of Pernod Ricard. Ever since it entered the Indian market a decade ago, it has been able to carve out a niche consumer segment of its own. It is truly an honour to be part of the experience when Jacob’s Creek decided to host the Longest Asian Brunch at South India’s tallest Resto Bar- High at the Sheraton Grand, Bangalore.
Sunday brunches are huge in Bangalore and this one was in a league of its own. The live music, the flowing bubbly and the fine curated menu set the perfect mood for a breezy Sunday afternoon. Jacob’s Reserve Adelaide Hills Chardonnay was the perfect accompaniment to my brunch which focused primarily on Seafood and Red Meat.
I started with the Grilled Chicken and Tenderloin and moved over to my favourite Salmon Tiradito which was well smoked. The Scallop Cheviche was quite unique in its presentation but my focus was more on the Salmon. I did try out a bit of the Grilled Pork as well which was succulent and tender.
As part of the High Special Appetiser, my choice was again the Cucumber Rolls with Salmon and Japanese Sweet Omelette with Shrimps. The Mixed Lettuce with Smoked Salmon was my choice of Salad from the wide range of selection which included Fish and Seafood as well along with vegetarian options. I also tried the Vegetarian Tempura for a change.
My Mains consisted of a Fried Rice from the Wok paired with some Thai Red Curry Chicken and Tenderloin Tepaniyaki. I did add a few Salmon pieces to my rice to spruce up the predictable taste.
The Dessert section was ethereal and the choice of options endless. I served myself a Mini Berries Cheesecake along with a Chocolate Cake and a slice of Tiramisu. The Mini Bannoffee Pie was a delight to say the least.
The afternoon saw the crowd cheer to the live band and later swing to the beats of Dj Nash when he took over the console. We were provided mementos of Polaroid pictures and a certificate from High for attending the Longest Asian Brunch at 421 Feet.
