AMORE DI PANE’ – A celebration of ‘Pane’ at Spaghetti Kitchen

Non-Veg Muffaletta

With the blistering heat sweeping over everyone, it becomes difficult to think about food and enjoy the same. What we need this summer is something cool, refreshing and something that would lower our body temperature when the heat soars!!. Spaghetti Kitchen, kept this in mind while coming up with AMORE DI PANE festival. It celebrates the various preparations around ‘Pane’, Italian for bread.

On a hot Tuesday afternoon, we decided to have our lunch at Spaghetti Kitchen at Select Citywalk at Saket and try out the festival menu. Post our customary conversation with the restaurant Chef and the manager, we decided to go with the chef’s recommendations. First one to land on our table was Roasted Vegetable Cibatta. A simple preparation of fresh vegetables perfectly roasted in oven placed in a crunchy cibatta. The vegetables were not dry and were crunchy and one can enjoy it any time of the day. Second in the line was Veg Muffaletta, a hot pocket stuffed with spinach, jalapenos and baby corns. A supreme filling that had balanced the rustic taste of spinach with jalapenos.

Next in line was non-veg offerings. Ham and Cheese Panini, hickory roast ham grilled with Gouda cheese. It was delicious and the granny smith(green apple) gave it a crunchy and little tangy flavor that balanced the sweetness of honey roasted ham – and thus we got a perfect sandwich. Smoked Chicken Wrap. Tortilla wrap of barbequed chicken strips with Gorgonzola Cheese and mustard dressing – Gorgonzola cheese dressing gave it light creamy taste. Roasted Beef Cibattahad a fillet of beef – slow cooked and sliced, concatenated with red wine, mushrooms and caramelized onion. Both the veg and non-veg cibatta were very crusty and both had a very unique and interesting taste. Non-Veg Muffalettawas completely different in taste and flavor from the veg one. It had smoked chicken franks, Belgian ham, jalapenos, olives and Fontina cheese. The first bite had set fireworks to the pallette.

I am an adventurer, dreamer, marketer, musically inclined, traveler and foodie to the core. I believe food is one of the greatest gift from GOD. I have always believed in that theory and have been trying to improve my dining experience. I am learning to appreciate various tastes, and expanding my horizon. For me, a great dining experience will be something where the serving challenges the conventional taste and stamps its authority. Be it a lavish spread of a five star hotel or a plate from a road-side shanty, my taste buds should be able to experience every single ingredient in the serving and the heart should always allure for it.
