The Luxury Collection - - Editorial -

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.
