To celebrate Easter, ITC Sonar has decided to be as elaborately traditional as they can be. From 16th to 20th April, the Gourmet Shop at ITC Sonar is going to have Easter Special desserts and breads, and on the 20th, there will be a lovely brunch from 12.30 to 3.45 pm at Eden Pavilion, the 24-hour fine-dining restaurant.

The Asparagus and Balsamic Trio was a small huddle of cooked asparagus, topped with Parmesan and drizzled with some Balsamic. Although summery and light, the asparagus for me was slightly less seasoned than I would have liked, and I would have preferred eating this with the main course as a side, rather than an individual dish.

And what a meat it was! Turkey roasted to moist perfection, covered with a layer of perfectly silky gravy, and topped with a dash of berry glazed jus, with a serving of Four Cheese Scalloped Potatoes as a side. I was enamored of the sweet turkey meat which parted at the touch of a fork, and the sweet berries which added the hint of tangy sweetness to the beautifully cooked meat.

Dazed and replete, we finished our meal with more sweetmeats distributed by Chef Harpawan, and received Easter Eggs (which I will open on Sunday, I swear!).
The Easter goodies can be purchased from The Gourmet Shop at ITC Sonar with the average pricing being somewhere around INR 500/-, while the Easter Brunch is priced at INR 2250/- (plus tax) per person.
