It’s a Party Kiss Kiss Hug Hug ! Vijay Mallya India F1

The serial kisser, the party man, the liquor baron, and co-owner of Sahara Force India F1 team is getting ready to throw one big party in New Delhi. As for being a serial kisser it’s true and limited only to girls and women. People like Vijay are important in this world because they do what they are suppose to do with money, spend it having fun. Vijay has fun while making a positive impact for India. Most important of all Vijay has style and taste. I am sure you know a lot of people with money who have neither. It’s a matter of two days and a few hours when all the fun in India will start with it’s first formula one race, and you can be certain the Vijay will be front and center and so he should, it’s Vijay who’s been the force to bring F1 racing to India it’s been his passion. Vijay’s party are famous all around the world, because at his party you don’t just party you party like a rock star. So here is some food and wine to make the party in India complete.

At any party there has to be something to nibble on while Vijay maybe busy nibbling on ear-lobes, of girls and women, others are going to be nibbling on delicious food and here is chef Preena Chauhan who uses her finely blend of spices artfully crafted called Arvinda’s with an idea for all at Sahara Force India F1 and perfect for any party of Vijay’s to kick things off.

To start any party and especially at the very first Indian formula one party you are going to have to serve up something new and chillingly refreshing that could compliment the spiced starters without challenging the flavor of turmeric. This is a Vijay Malya party and as the man who knows his wines there would be no better place to introduce you to a small winery from the rich soils of Niagara-on-the-lake The ICE House Winery. I have tasted it and I have been to the winery that I can tell you this is a perfect blend with any starter for any Indian dish. The wine is served chilled, and I personally prefer it in a frosted chilled flute glass giving it the appearance of champagne but sexy as the legs of Petra Nemcova and wine is all about the legs and Ice has those long smooth legs. Life is all about accidental discoveries and this was one of those, refreshingly and pleasantly delightful that was also discovered by three ladies in spandex from the home town of Canadian singer Shania Twain.  So look out India a new trend is starting Ice Wine from Canada and it’s starting at the Indian F1 and you got it here at My Name is Khan where the adventure of discovery never stops, so let’s get the party started.

Khan, Schumacher and Michelin Star Chef F1 India

This year began with an adventure of discovery for My Name is Khan, infusing the west with the east, through fashion, food, films, music and formula one, preparing for the adventure that awaits at F1 of India.

I have always been curious to get to know new cultures, so I am looking forward to traveling to India, as I haven’t been there-Michael Schumacher

On the pages of My Name is Khan you have seen Indian fashion, met everyone that matters in bollywood as they came to Toronto for the IFFA Awards, been introduced to the essence of spices in Indian cuisine brought to you by Arvinda’s and now may I introduce you to the Three Kings who are all on the top of their game.

Shah Rukh Khan known as SRK by millions is expected in Toronto in forty-eight hours,  to open his film Ra One only to turn around and return to India for India’s very first Formula One race. Is he bigger then any Hollywood star, oh yes he is if you consider 600 million people on cell phones  are keeping track of him.

Michael Schumacher is a King among F1 drivers and I have been around the sphere of Michael since he began racing for Team Benetton. Even today I look in amazement at the Benetton cards celebrating the first three wins framed on the wall, not knowing that Michael Schumacher was just warming up. Michael closed a circle in his life by coming back to where he started with Ross Brawn and Mercedes. Michael you have to come to India in your off time and next time I hope that you will come to Jaipur where magic rules and enjoy the history while in the comfort of the luxury of the Fairmont Jaipur who have catered to the best of bollywood in Toronto, so they too like you are on top of their game. There is no doubt Michael is rocking India the media is buzzing,  but then this is India where red is blue and blue in green. Mercedes Benz India is the lead sponsor of the glitzy dazzling Amber Lounge Delhi and so you can be assured that a party not to be forgotten will be taking place in India and Micheal will be present and the music will carry you away  as if on a magic carpet. In India they love music and they love to dance.  I hope you brought your dancing shoes.

Chef Vineet Bhati awarded the Michelin star  I have known  for over twenty five years. I first met Chef Bhati with the late film producer Ismail Merchant at the London restaurant Star of India. Chef Vineet Bhati’s Rosi which is on the same street where I had my first flat in London is off King’s Road on Lincoln Street. Over the years I have seen Vineet always sparkle with new creations. Shah Rukh Khan or Michael Schumacher could not go without food and the food that is prepared by chef Vineet is a odyssey into the world of divine foods that leave you utterly speechless. This is a good thing. The adventure is just beginning for Michael Schumacher because if you have not experienced India or Indian cuisine of chef Vineet Bhati you are still on the path of discovery.

Homage to Catalonia by Ferran Adriá! Buen provecho!

I came to the Four Seasons in Beverly Hills to sit down with Hugh Hudson director of the multiple Academy Awards winning film “Chariots of Fire” in a desperate attempt to acquire the rights from Hugh to the George Orwell book “Homage to Catalonia”. While I failed, George Orwell who went off to Spain to fight in a country with which he had no connection, grenades dangling would utter the words, if he could, “Fan-tas-tico!”, in describing Ferran Adriá and his Tickets tapas bar and 41º in Barcelona. After all where else can you go and have the taste of one olive freeze you as if it were a sole sexual note. Ferran employ’s the increasing specialization of the human species and the enlarging habit of exchange that are the root cause of his innovation. Ferran Adriá has been called by Gourmet magazine the, “Salvador Dali of the kitchen”, and trust me and many of you will agree, it great to eat at a place knowing that Dali is in the kitchen preparing to surprise you with something so utterly refreshing and exciting that you are spellbound to leisurely enjoy the food. In the end it is all about the food, and that is what makes Ferran Adriá tick, he is all about the food. So to all those in Indian and elsewhere who have now discovered Spain because of the Bollywood film “Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara” which translates “This life will not come again” at the Formula One Grand Prix of India study the man in the Ferrari, Fernando Alonso and get a yen for Spain then in Barcelona magic awaits you at Farran Adriá’s Tickets and 41º. The adventure of discovery never stops at My Name is Khan where Ferran Adriá reminds us that magic is real and dreams come true. Buen provecho!
