MIDWAY: 6 of 9 STEPS TO HEAVEN

The Greenhouse on the Ridge is aptly named as it is  the sweetest little cottage I have seen.. Through the  large windows all you see is the greenery on the ridge.

Beautiful and delicate  white curtains drape the windows and the tables have crisp white damask linen with large lemon yellow borders.

The 9 steps to Heaven is how I have rechristened the exotic and simply divine  9 course dinner crafted by Master Chef Sujan S. The white carnations in the kulhad make a comeback, being the signature of this series of blogs.

The 4th course made me realize how much thought and planning had gone into designing this wonderful culinary experience.

The vegetarian and non vegetarian dishes look identical as the scallops are replaced by young creamy coconut flesh .

The black rice tastes awesome. Another surprise for me.

The beautiful plates are carefully selected and handcrafted as well to match the food.

All the courses/steps  are  truly art crafted by the finest chefs in the world.

Midway, we take a break with this sorbet . I take the chance to see what is happening in the main restaurant and am blessed with a beautiful shot of OLIVE.

Do check out the ingredients as well.

The Chefs in action, painstakingly ensuring  perfection in all that goes to the tables.

The drinks have been paired beautifully as well.

I had never even heard of the vegetables ( let alone taste them)  included  in the 6th step to Heaven. Do see the really  delicate baby carrots. 

The greens on top are called Kale; be honest, have you heard of them before?

Edible sand, burnt butter, speak of ingenuity and you will get it at THE TASTING LAB.

Wish to go to Heaven, three more steps to go.Keep reading.

For those wanting to give up, I leave with this basket of Yellow Flowers.

Guess why yellow?
