Easter Baking Class at Lavonne

Long weekends always bring a cheer. And this Easter weekend, we decided to spend it learning to bake some festive treats. Lavonne, the popular patisserie and baking academy at Bangalore, is also known for their baking classes where one can learn to make a whole range of delights such as cupcakes, breads, tarts, pies, quiches,…

Weekends Like Easter

I wouldn’t call myself religious even though I do believe in a greater force. But I love all festivals for the sole reason that it brings people together and there’s always a grand feast involved. The best part is that for each festival I get to indulge on some delectable dishes, learn about varied cultures,…

Before you jump the gun and assume that this post is about an exorbitant meal at The Oberoi, let me assure you that you are in for a big surprise! When we heard about the unlimited dim sum lunch at Szechwan Court, we were excited to learn all about the tempting inclusions in the menu…

Naga Food Festival at Cafe Thulp

Say Naga food and I am always up and ready for a fiery feast. So when we heard about the ongoing Naga food festival at Cafe Thulp, Bangalore, it seemed like the perfect excuse to kickstart the weekend food fiesta.

Stopping By The Tuck Shop

There’s this thing about boarding school kids, some find it annoying but we have this habit of going on endlessly about our school days. Someone just needs to mention a particular teacher, a famous song, an expedition to the hills, birthday parties, jam sessions, morning assembly, prep time, and just about anything and we are…

A Place That Makes You Hoppi!

If you think ‘Hoppipola’ doesn’t sound like a word that you would find in the Oxford Dictionary, you’re right. In Iceland, it means jumping in puddles (a quick Google search threw up a very nice track by Sigur Rós you can enjoy here), but the young and restless of Bangalore will soon know it as…

A Goan Afternoon…

It is the perfect setting for a lazy Saturday afternoon. A semi-al fresco space, gentle rain and a lauded Goan chef for company. Chef Edridge Vaz is in town for Sussegado, the Goan festival at the Hyatt Bangalore, and we’re meeting him over lunch. Chef Vaz appears to be a bashful man, but when he…
