Master Chef Sujan and his magical conjurers had laid out 9 steps or courses to divinity.

I was in Heaven, what tastes ,what flavours and what to say of the feast for the eyes.
Come lets take the last steps together.
I draw your attention to the lovely bowls made in Manipur and the lovely handcrafted spoons.
Details like this accentuate the experience from Ordinary to EXTRAORDINARY.
This forest of mushrooms was laid out on a marvelous bed of and assortment of grains.It was an assortment of flavours which burst on your taste buds.
Paired with this visually delightful WHISKY COCKTAIL, can HEAVEN be better? See the menu above for details.
The final steps are always the sweetest. Here too the magicians did not fail in surprising us.
The transparent Litchi looking fruit is called LONGAN. Had never even heard of it , let alone taste it?
Take a break with a “Havana” Cigar ? The chef brings these lovely chocolate cigars in a bed of liquid nitrogen. The smoke is the nitrogen turning to its gaseous state at room temperature.
The signature white Carnations maintain the link in this series of blogs.
The final and 9th step to HEAVEN had all the guests in raptures, with wow, oohs, aahs .
Have a look yourself?
It was a fabulous and delicious treat. The ‘shell’ was an extra thin meringue which simply melted on the tongue.The ‘yellow yolk ‘ was a smooth citrus lemony mousse.
The 9th step was truly the ultimate , THIS WAS HEAVEN in THE GREENHOUSE ON THE RIDGE.
The surprises did not end, as I spotted a bit of the ridge well-preserved in the kitchen.
The Kitchen work table had been built around these rocks.
We leave this magical cottage and step into the cover of the Banyan tree , which is also the outdoor section of the mother ship ( restaurant) OLIVE.
