Sweetness in Winter-
Aloft Bengaluru Cessna Business Park’s desserts for the season
The temperatures are plummeting in Bangalore and the woollens are coming out of storage. If you are shivering deliciously with the rest of the city, Aloft Bengaluru Cessna Business Park has a few sweet ways to help you cheat the chills. Drop by Nook, the hotel’s all-day dining restaurant and sample Chef Sandeep’s signature Gulkhand Gulab Jamun. This delectable sweetmeat and winter are pretty much a match made in heaven. Chef Sandeep is known for bringing dishes with a difference for Bangalore’s food living denizens to relish, and the Gulkhand Gulab Jamun presents this nationally famous sweet in a unique avatar. Redolent with the distinctive flavour of rose petal jam, it elevates the whole experience of biting into the juicy, deep fried jamun to an altogether different level. Served in a bath of piping hot flavoured sugar syrup, it will warm the cockles of your heart and make a slave of your sweet tooth. If chocolate is your weakness, then again Nook is where you surrender to temptation. The classic Hot Chocolate, aka “A Hug in a Mug”, slowly brewed with cream, sweetened condensed milk, dark chocolate, cocoa powder and vanilla, all topped with luscious whipped cream and fluffy marshmallows, will have you thanking God for winters!
And with Christmas around with corner, how can one miss the Christmas pudding? The preparations for this special dessert commence a whole month in advance. An assortment of dry fruits - sultanas, raisins, currants, figs, peel, and apricots - are immersed in sweet, dark, sticky sherry with a hint of liquorice and a dash of rum, and put away to soak and interchange their flavours for a month. The longer they soak, the more moist and flavoursome the pudding. This fruity blend is then added to the dense pudding batter and oven-steamed for 8 hours, producing a beautifully caramelized Christmas cake.
So, this winter, along with the hot coffee, allow yourself some sweet indulgence! Visit Aloft Bengaluru Cessna Business Park and devour these winter desserts, or just let yourself go, and enjoy the lavish Christmas spread at Nook.
