Building Memories with Paper Boat

There are certain F&B products you find yourself purchasing again and again because of the quality. Then there are those that go beyond quality and manage to strike a chord on a more personal level. For me, Paper Boat is one such brand that evokes fond childhood memories every time I pick up products from…

Leave The Ferrari, Meet The Old Monk

I cannot mention the exact year when I understood what alcohol meant or what it was capable of doing but my introduction to the intoxication was through the Old Monk. I remember I didn’t quite like the taste the first time though it was sweet caramel-like. But it grew on me. Slowly. Building memories over…

A Table With A View

There are plenty (including yours truly) who are convinced that food magically tastes better when it’s served against a spectacular backdrop. So far, the best view I’ve enjoyed with a meal was at Thalassa, Goa, where the sight of the sun sinking into the Arabian Sea, leaving a riot of orange, purple and yellow in…

Bespoke Dinnerware presented by Interarts

I believe, for a meal to be deemed memorable, taste is not the only criteria. It is the whole experience that lends meaning to it. Some maybe particular about the setting, linen, flowers, glassware, cutlery, etc. As for me, pretty dinnerware play an important role when having friends and family over and I am serving…

Three Dishes We Love At Fenny’s

When this Goan-themed waterhole opened doors in Koramangala, party people in the locality cheered. What’s great about it is that it manages to keep the focus on food as well. Here are a few dishes we loved over several visits. 

Bloody Good!

Just caught these plump beauties at the neighbour’s backyard garden. Wonder what he’s upto. But we can only think of stirring up a punchy Bloody Mary to enjoy the lovely Bangalore weather. 

Playful Greens

I must admit that I wouldn’t choose salads as the first pick while at a restaurant. It is only after deciding on the hors d’oeuvre and main course, if need be, then I would consider ordering a salad. Or if I was attempting to go on a diet yet again. This is not because I…

Vada Mornings

A morning staple, these doughnut resembling fritters are a favourite in South Indian cuisine with its light and crisp texture. The recipe is simple and instructs grinding soaked black lentils (urad dal) with cumin seeds and peppercorns along with a little water till a smooth paste is acquired, and then deep frying till golden in…

Obsessed With Meringue

  Food by itself holds less value unless dipped in memories. My first memory of meringue dates back to this Christmas party at the tea estate club when I was a little girl. Can’t remember the exact year, what I wore or the gifts I received. All I remember is being seated at the kid’s…

Snacks and the City

My most vivid memories of summer vacations in Kolkata are the ones associated with food. Being a child of two busy parents, and brought up on a steady diet of idli-vada-dosa, dal-rice and the occasional burger, elaborate meals were a rarity. I witnessed food orgies every day. Starting from 9 am in the morning (because,…
