The man of the moment; Chef Olivier Vincenot

For the love of all things chocolate, Foodhall was kind enough to organise an event with Chef Olivier Vincenot, to give a whole audience, how chocolate can be made more divine. Chef Vincenot was the same person, who had given everyone a masterclass on dealing with pistachios, last August. Just as informative and elaborate, he gave the audience lowdown on good chocolate making, and shared some recipes, ideas, on how to best enjoy this 'brown gold', so to say. The delicacies that the chef chose this time, included the likes of Truffles Mocha: (Ganache), Fruits & nuts Mandian, Chocolate mousse and Chocolate almonds.

An Evening Of Foodie Experiences At Bronies

Bronies gastro pub entrance

One of the things which strike you about the new Bronies Gastropub, is the way the location is most commonly described; 'where the old Nirula's used to be.' Situated under the Lajpat Nagar flyover, this new place is actually a pleasant surprise; where most of the outlets in the city, especially in the south are known to be relatively more cramped for space, Bronies is much better spread out, and has space for almost everyone that visits the place. Very modern, innovative, and feeling of being in the midst of nature despite being based in the heart of the bustling city.
