 Wedding that is! We were contracted to do a tasting for an upcoming Indian wedding that has yet to be unveiled. I have never been to India. Don't even know if I know anyone who has. Sure, I have eaten in some good Indian restaurants. Had many bad meals in some too. I enjoy the flavors and when approached to craft a "fusion menu", at first I scofted. Fusion is not my cup of tea. But, since I knew there was really no way around a fusion, or infusion of sorts, I dug my naan into my repertoire and started thinking. Here is a few shots of what I conjured up. The bro o' the bride dug it. Now on with the show for 200 please.
