The Taj Mahal Palace, Mumbai, is all set to present to its guests a stellar gastronomic experience by bringing in the second edition of the ‘Spanish Extravaganza’ this month. The festival presented by Food & Wines from Spain, will celebrate Spain’s finest flavors at The Chambers. Seven culinary masters and two Michelin-starred chefs will combine their exemplary knowledge, trademark styles and unique recipes to present a signature experience like none other.
Commenting on the collaboration, Taljinder Singh, Area Director, Mumbai Hotels and General Manager, The Taj Mahal Palace, Mumbai said “The Taj Mahal Palace has for decades brought in the best of global experiences, be it in terms of luxury or cuisine. Our tryst with Spanish culture and food was a massive success last year and we are utterly delighted to host the second edition of Spanish Extravaganza.” “We aim to promote Spanish culture in India and cuisine is indeed the cornerstone of any culture. This exclusive event brings together a curated experience for Indians to enthrall them with the best of Spain and its delicacies,” said the Spanish Embassy Economic Counsellor, José Vicente Pérez López.
The Spanish Extravaganza promises to unravel the exquisite secrets of Spanish culinary arts. Guests will be spoilt for choice. They can indulge in a specially curated menu by Michelin-starred chefs Miguel Barrera Barrachina and Ignacio Solana Perez, get a taste of Spain’s resplendent culinary history with paella master Santi Almuina and appreciate offerings from tapas gurus Maria Varela and Alvaro Villasante. Traditional Spanish wines, carefully selected by sommeliers Manuel Corralero, Jon AdoniRementeria, Alejandro Paadin and Magandeep Singh, will enhance the overall experience.
The stellar team will present its craft in the form of two experiences spread over the duration of the tour. The five-course fine dining Michelin dinner experience at The Chambers Dining Room will be accompanied by live music and an exclusive wine-paired menu featuring Spanish wines. Alternately, guests can savour the Paella and Tapas experiences at The Chambers Lawn where live cooking stations will bring alive the flavors of the Mediterranean country under a winter sky.
