Barbeque Nation, one of the most successful casual dining restaurant chains in India, recently partnered with UK’s Curry King Pat Chapman for a whole new Barbeque experience during Festive October month across the country of India. Pat Chapman’s effervescent 14 new marinades got introduced across the country and marked the entry of a completely new genre of barbequed food.
Patrick Lawrence Chapman, who amongst other numerous titles, has been called â€˜The Ambassador of Indian Foodâ€™ and the â€˜Curry Leaderâ€™ by renowned food reviewers in Britain, has also been credited by Daily Mail for â€˜Baltifying Britainâ€™ for his bestseller cookbook â€“ the first among 36 recipe books penned down by him with cumulative sales topping 1.5 million copies. Pat was a regular guest chef on the QE2, the leading luxury liner, for many seasons, and the Hilton and the Taj. Such is his understanding of the nuances of spices that he has been called upon by the Government of India in Kerala, to lecture on spices!
We got a wonderful opportunity to meet and interact with Pat Chapman and discuss about the balti cuisine in Britain and my trip to Great Britain for food blogging.
During the festive month of October, Pat Chapmanâ€™s marinades promised to give a taste of grills to Indian customers as they are savored around the country. You could visit any of Barbeque Nation’s 7 outlets in Bangalore (Indirangar, Kormangala, JP Nagar, Lido Mall, Whitefield Road, Kammanahalli and Electronic City) between October 3 and 31 and you would be transported on an amazing culinary trip around the world.
Barbeque Nation is a pioneer in India to promote â€˜DIYâ€™ (do-it-yourself) cuisine with a concept of live on-the-table grill in India and is today the largest casual dining brand in the country. The restaurant offers a pre-fixed menu with a fixed price. The menu is drawn from Mediterranean, American, Oriental, Asian and Indian subcontinent.
For the â€˜Pat Chapman Grills The Worldâ€™ Food Fest, 14 new marinades from Chef Chapmanâ€™s amazing repertoire were laid out at the Barbeque Nation. From the British Isles come the Yorkshire Marinade, Worcestershire Marinade and the Spanish Valencia Marinade. Pat Chapmanâ€™s recipe from the Middle East comprises the Lebanon ~ Arabian Marinade and Persian Marinade. He whipped up a fiery bunch of marinades from the Americas with the hot American Texican Marinade, Albuquerque Atomic Marinade, New Orleans Incendiary Marinade, Aztec ~ Mole Poblano Marinade and the Jamaican Jerk Marinade. From Australasia comes the Outback Emu while Patâ€™s delectable Far East marinades included the Mighty Hot Mai Thai, Chinese Sichuan and Indonesian Bumbukacang recipes.
Pat Chapman also hosted a special cook out show on days that he was behind the counter and promised to whip up a storm with his inimitable style and preparations. â€˜Pat Chapman Grills The Worldâ€™ bought to Indian barbeque lovers a lifetime of work from the iconic Pat Chapman!
â€œChef Pat Chapman is a legend in the UK and the great ambassador for Indian food. Barbeque Nation is delighted to partner him to turn the culinary experience the other way around: get him to share with Indians the famous marinades of the world with his own interpretation and many his own creation.
