Four Seasons Wines Live Cookout with Bloggers

I was reading one of the excerpts from Four Seasons Wines " The old rules state 'Red Wines with red meats, White Wines with poultry & fish'. However, in today's age where "Fusion" food dominates the culinary scene, there can only be suggestions and no hard & fast rules on this subject, which leaves you with considerable room for experimenting & personal choice"
Four Seasons Wines hosted a Live Cookout at The Hyatt, on 18th January, at MG Road, Bangalore exclusively for the Bangalore Blogger community. The event had the chefs of the hotel and the bloggers cooking together on Weber grills for an interactive session preparing Pastas & Grilled food.

The highlight of the event was a pairing session whilst the food is being prepared. The Four Seasons range of varietal wines for matching sauces in  pasta and Four Seasons Barrique range  to match with the sauces used in grilled food.
