The word barbecue when used as a noun can
refer to the cooking method, the meat cooked in this way, the cooking apparatus
(the "barbecue grill" or simply "barbecue"), or to an event
where this style of food is featured. Used as an adjective,
"barbecued" refers to foods cooked by this method. The term is also
used as a verb for the act of cooking food in this manner. Barbecuing is
usually done out-of-doors by smoking the meat over wood or charcoal. Restaurant
barbecue may be cooked in large brick or metal ovens designed for that purpose.
There are numerous regional variations of barbecuing and it is practiced in
many areas of the world. (Source: Wikipedia)
One of the most sought after cooking methods
worldwide, BBQ has been in existence since primeval times. After the fire was
discovered by our ancestors, meat and other products were started to be cooked
on fire as it changed the character of the food wholly. Since then, the basics
have remained same but the add ons kept on coming in and kept on modifying the
technique based on the region and preferences. The Leela Ambience Convention
Hotel has come up with a unique food festival which showcases the BBQ styles
from different regions of the world viz. American, Oriental, European and
Indian of course.
Chef Rohit Tokhi and his talented team of
chefs have done wonders by curating such a great menu. The setup has been done
at the Al Fresco setting at Frangipani (Patio) onlooking the open skies
situated on the 3rd floor terrace. The furniture is as rustic as can
be, inspired by the German Oktoberbest and is the perfect seating option for
Tokhi and Ms.Devashree Mahajan (PR and Marcomm) for the
Hotel played fantastic hosts to us. Chef was more than enthusiastic to showcase
the creations they have curated and prepared coming off the fire directly onto our
plates. Pork Belly (Bacon and asparagus skewers), Pork Ribs, Sausages, Grilled
Lamb Chops,Chicken Skewers Teriyaki were just amazing from the European
section. The Oriental section was as interesting as the other counterparts. The
roasted duck and the crispy the chicken with skin was just fabulous. Indian BBQ
has much to offer too, the Pomfret, Jhinga Nisha, Quail and chicken and so on.
I just loved the grilled pomfret, it was marinated very well in a nice masala
paste which tasted just great.
The Pulled Pork burgers, Corn Burgers, Cheesy Nachos,
Lamb Burgers served with French Fries and Cole Slaw from the American Food Truck
were to die for. And did i forget to mention the myriad of Salads, Cheeses,
Breads and Desserts on Buffet. OMG all this and much more at a Rock bottom
