The Old Village Post House will begin the 2015 wine dinner series with an exotic vegetarian menu composed of dishes inspired by the Indian Spice Coast. Chef Forrest Parker will present a five course feast with carefully selected wine pairings using a variety of produce and spices. This culinary journey through the Malabar Coast will begin with a reception where we will serve chaat, an assorted array of savory appetizers, along with sparking wine. Upon seating, a soup course of chilled buttermilk strawberry rasam will be followed by matar panner uttapam, which is comprised of a rice and dal flour base topped with greens and sunchoke vinaigrette. The entrée course will be served as traditional southern Indian sadhya, a composition of several dishes. A variety of options, such as Kerala fried cauliflower, rava masala dosa (a thin crispy crepe served with a spiced peanut coconut chutney) and forbidden black lentils will be presented to each table. Dessert is a delightful Alphonso mango curd with groundnut brittle and coconut anglaise. Tax and gratuity are not included in ticket price.
