Cinnamon Kitchen’s Vivek Singh and Tim Atkin MW host wine dinner

This month, top City restaurant Cinnamon Kitchen will welcome back Master of Wine Tim Atkin for another fabulous food-and-wine-pairing dinner.

Atkin has teamed up with the restaurant’s executive chef Vivek Singh to develop a special menu that puts equal emphasis on both food and wine, and proves that wines from all over the world can stand up to the subtle spiciness and aromatic flavours of all kinds of modern Indian dishes.
