Believe in eat, drink and be merry? Join the Oktoberfest celebrations in the city. Let your beer mugs overflow with frothy beer and gorge on unlimited platters. Oktoberfest is a 16-day festival known for exotic beers, held every year at the end of September in Bavaria, Germany, and is being celebrated in the capital with fervour.
“We are serving specially brewed beer with higher alcohol content and this is darker in colour than the regular beers. One of the most popular sausages Bratwurst, usually made from veal, beef or chopped meat, is a dish that goes well with Oktoberfest special beer. Other options include Gebratene schweinshaxe (leg of a pork), saurkraut und kartoffelknoedeln (roasted pork kunckle with saurkraut and potato dumpling) and leberkaes’mit hausgemachtem kartoffelsalat (Bavarian meat served with potato salad),” says chef Akash Arora of 7° Brauhaus.
Apart from the regular Coronas and Budweisers, there are authentic German beers that are in demand. “As a part of the fest, we are serving wheat beers with slightly sweet taste such as Erdinger Weissbier, Schneider Weisse and Valentins that go really well with spicy food,” informs chef Sanjay Rautuliya of The Beer Cafe.
Beer is a versatile drink that has no set rules for food pairing. Chef Abhinav Sharma of Amsterdam Kitchen and Bar says, “Lager, stout, ale and cider beer can be paired with anything that complements their tastes. Grilled chicken with lager beer is a sound option. Fish lovers can go for stout beer.”
Vegetarians and fresh fruit lovers can opt for the milder varieties of beer. “Cider is an apple beer that is popular with women. Melt-in-mouth cottage cheese steak with a glass of cider is refreshing,” adds chef Abhinav.
Celebrating the spirit of Bavarians in English style, chef Nawal Prakash of Hinglish: The Colonial Cafe, has a specially-crafted menu. “Classic beer with fish and chips served with tartar sauce or sausages and mash are being served at 50% discount,” he concludes.

I want to begin with a little story that was told to me by a leading executive at Aptech. He was exercising in a gym with a lot of younger people.

Shekhar Kapur’s Bandit Queen didn’t make the cut. Neither did Shaji Karun’s Piravi, which bagged 31 international awards.
