Indian Food: “Try it, You’ll Like it!”

Indian Food: “Try it, You’ll Like it!”

 

Looking for a new dining experience? Bombay Indian Restaurant in the English Creek Shopping Center in EHT is the place for you if you are adventurous!

 

Recently, we dined at the Maharajah Indian Restaurant in Cambridge, England so we were familiar with a few of the items on Bombay’s menu. But since we were undecided, we went for their Non-vegetarian dinner sampler for 2 for $35. It was a great choice to get to sample many of their items.

 

We started with chips (similar to a flat nacho) with 2 dipping sauces, one with bbq flavor and the other spicy with green peppers. Then we were served samosa, a hot pastry of hummus. Very good.

 

The main course included Tandoori Chicken Tikka, lamb curry, chicken korma, sheikh kabab, rice and naan bread. There were 4 dipping sauces; the first had chick peas and a tangy sauce, the second lentils, the third a spicy yellow sauce (Wow! I think I bit into some cardamom!) and the fourth a white yogurt sauce.  The kabab came on a hot plate with sizzling onions, green peppers and carrots, chicken and an interesting sausage.(pictured)

 

My favorite was the chicken korma, which has a mild blend of spices in a creamy sauce.

The naan bread is used as a utensil to dip in the various bowls. We also tried the sweet lassi which is a sweet yogurt drink, a new twist on a healthy milk shake! There were a variety of inexpensive appetizers and I was surprised to see so many seafood items on the menu.

So if you are looking for a unique experience, check out Bombay. We certainly had our fill of new and unique tastes.

A Trip to the ‘Bold Look of Kohler’

 

We visited Kohler, Wisconsin, home of the Kohler Company where they make everything for your home enjoyment from kitchen sinks to bath tubs to faucets. We visited the Kohler Design Center and took a tour of the Kohler Factories to see how bathtubs, sinks and faucets are made.

 

The village of Kohler is located outside of Sheboygan, Wisconsin and is about an hour from the Milwaukee Airport. The free tour starts weekdays at 8:30 am and lasts for 3 hours. Reservations are required, and you will visit the Pottery Factory where ceramic sinks and toilets are poured into molds and heated in huge kilns and the Brass Building where hundred of faucets are made each day. The next factory is the Foundry where 6 foot cast iron tubs are made by pouring red hot metal into molds and allowed to cool, then they are sprayed with colored enamel and dried. We saw about 50 tubs on the conveyor belts.

 

It was a fascinating tour to actually see how all these products are made and to see these hard working men at work, many working without shirts on in the hot factory. Another interesting site was seeing men ride around the factory on 3 wheel bicycles; a fast way to get around.

 

The factories are each about the size of a foot ball field and three stories tall. You must wear goggles and you are not allowed to take pictures. They also have a division for artists from all over the world that design creative pieces of art work. Our tour guide had worked at the factory for years and made the tour very interesting.

 

Kohler is the largest plumbing-ware manufacturer in the nation. You can also visit the Design Center 9am – 5 pm and see many displays of kitchens, bathrooms, and spas. They also have a floor that tells the history of the Kohler family. I have a deeper appreciation at what it takes to make some of our most essential home products. As a plumbing contractor, my husband was impressed with the size of the company with 4,000 employees in Wisconsin and 200,000 worldwide.

 

 

We stayed at the exclusive American Club, Carriage House, and enjoyed complimentary breakfast, massages, shopping, afternoon tea and an evening cocktail hour served with cheese and fruit before a delicious dinner. Destination Kohler is a AAA5Diamond Hotel. During the Cocktail hour we got to meet some of the other guests who included an oilman from Texas. Everyone was extremely friendly. Most visitors were there to golf. Whistling Straits is home to the US Senior Open in July 2007.

 

We ate at Cucina for dinner and enjoyed Minestrone, Salad, Veal Parmesan $25 and Beef Bolognese $15 and a great chocolate dessert and limoncello cheesecake. We also enjoyed dinner at the nostalgic Wisconsin Room where we enjoyed a spectacular soup sampler of 3 soups for $7: Carrot and Ginger, Crab and Shrimp Bisque, and Cold Cucumber soup. I was happy to be able to sample each one; what a great idea! For dinner I enjoyed fettuccine and shrimp with sun-dried tomatoes and mushrooms $26 and my husband enjoyed one of the best filet mignons and whipped potatoes $31. Very reasonable! We also sampled unique 12-year old cheddar cheese at the Market at Woodlake.

 

Following are some of the pictures from the Design Center. Maybe they will give you some ideas for your next project. Or better yet take a trip there to see it first hand.

Cape May Winery Tour Blue Ribbon Winner

Cape May Winery Tour Blue Ribbon Winner

The Cape May Winery, 711 Townbank Rd 884-1169 www.CapeMayWinery.com  is a great place to learn all about wine making and enjoy wine tasting with grapes grown right here in Cape May County.

If you take a walk thru the vineyards at the Cape May Winery you will see why New Jersey is called the Garden State. They have been growing grapes for 12 years and the winery is 10 years old. They offer a Wine Tour and Tasting every Saturday at 3 p.m. for $20.

According to our tour guide, Cape May County has great sandy soil-good for drainage and milder temperatures than North Jersey; another advantage. The Cape May Winery is 6th in the state for production and grows 16 varieties of grapes, from Merlot to Chardonnay to Pinot Gris and more. They have not needed to use the irrigation system, because grapes require only about 2 inches of water a month. The harvest is from Mid-September to Mid-November. Last year they produced 55,500 bottles of wine from 11 acres at 3 locations in the county. It takes 2 ½ pounds of grapes to make one bottle.

The 2005 Merlot was ready for bottling the day we were there. We were some of the first to sample last year’s crop, which was fantastic. They bottle the wine on the premises as well.

The wine is de-stemmed and crushed in machines outside and then the juice is placed in large 1,000 gallon steel tanks and wooden barrels Wine needs to be kept at controlled temperatures and sediment is removed during the year long process. Wines also vary in sugar content with a dry wine having less than 1 gram per liter; their best seller-Victorian Blush, a white zinfindel about 3.2; and their dessert wine-Fini Blanc about 8.

The crowd of about 25 was very interested in seeing the process first-hand. Then we were treated to a wine tasting of many of their prize-winning wines along with cheese, crackers and fresh fruit. There is a gift shop to purchase their excellent home-grown wines. It was a perfect day to do something a little out of the ordinary at the Jersey Shore. The Winery is a few minutes off exit 1 of the Garden State Parkway.

Note: Always drink responsibly and designate a driver. Drunk Driving Kills Lives.
