‘Flavours Of Argentina’ Celebrated at LIMA

The Consulate General and Promotion Centre of the Argentine Republic in Argentina, together with Restaurant LIMA, had recently organised an event called ‘FLAVOURS OF ARGENTINA’, dedicated to promoting Argentine tourism, culinary, wine and culture, all aimed towards encouraging an open business climate between India and Argentina.

Acting Consul General Alejandro Zothner Meyer raised the toast and invited the guests to enjoy the wines of Argentina with some culinary must-haves. Needless to say, the wines were Malbec specials like Dominio de la Plata Crios, Trapiche Oak Malbec and white wines like Trapiche Sauvignon Blanc and Dominio de la Plata Crios Torrentes. Sommelier and CEO of All Things Nice, Nikhil Agarwal introduced the wine region and spoke about the wines of Argentina.

The evening slowly came alive with tango performances by BTangoConscious. As guests savoured the wines with argentine food specialties like luscious lamb meatballs, fugazza, choripan and empanada chicken, the music ascended to Latin fever-heights with salsa, bachata, and cha-cha, bidding everyone present to the dance floor.

The fun-filled evening was attended by representatives and heads of travIMG_6812el companies, popular restaurants in the city, famed sommeliers, wine importers, wine enthusiasts and captains of industries from various sectors in which India and Argentina share a common trading platform. Also present were the prominent director, Shyam Bengal and his wife. Other guests included Chef Vicky Ratnani, Sumer Vaswani from Blue Frog, Food blogger, Sameer Malkani, Rojita Tiwari from Drinks and Destinations and Blaise Fernandes, CEO of Gateway House.
