George hates Indian food in Australia and that was news to me. After watching so many Australian shows on television like food safari etc showcasing Indian food my thought was our Indian cuisine has made waves across the continent and people seemed to love it...my perception proved wrong..
George says the flavor taste and method to create original Indian food is in India no one can perfect it or can recreate the same as India that moment made me feel so proud of my country..oh my I'm so lucky. George says food for me is religion, It's who I am, Food is my passion and I love cooking. It's nothing but serving love on the plate". On that note we started our tasting session it was a 3 course meal George and his team tickled our taste buds with signature dishes at the tasting session...Ouzo Cured Salmon, Miso Eggplant, Softshell Crab Souvlaki, Salted Caramel Rice pudding almond butter with rice icecream.
