Sommelier Nikhil Agarwal of All Things Nice on the dinner: ‘This dinner was extremely exciting for us because we got to break the rules by pairing modern Italian cuisine with the experimental single malt whiskies from Glenfiddich and The Balvenie. For us, the success of these dinners is directly dependent on the pleasure our guests derive from the food and drink experience. Chef Beppe did an outstanding job with the 6 course dinner and the single malt whiskies paired perfectly well.’
