When you get invited to a sunday brunch where you can grill your own meal & sip on wine, you don’t say no. It all went down at Palate Culinary Studio. The cooking studio, run by Chef Rakhee Vaswani holds regular cooking classes, but this afternoon was all about the Raclette grill. A staple in Switzerland during winters (& more popular than fondue, apparently). Usually places the Raclette grill in the middle of a dining table, surrounded by all sorts of yummy ingredients (meat, veggies & more). Everyone grills their food & tops it how they like. The big grill has both a metal & granite grilling surface & the smaller one has just metal. They also comes with small pans to melt the special Raclette cheese till it’s nice & bubbly, at which point you can just pour it on bread or vegetables.
Chef Rakhee had already marinated & prepared a lot of ingredients, right from tandoori paneer to yakitori chicken & king prawns.
I think the metal grill side was a bigger hit (everyone loves grill lines) but the granite side worked just as well.
Also there that day were the guys from Aspri Spirits, who made sure the wine was flowing, everyone loved the sparkling wine, it was so refreshing!
