Orangey goodness at orangekitchens.

Growing up in India I did not observe Halloween (though in the last few years a lot of people have started observing it. Read: Partying).   Things are a little different for Sara. Times have changed and over the years all of us have welcomed new festivals and rituals with open arms and ofcourse she is growing […]

Crustacean Love at Chimes.

I first “met” the Singaporean Crab at Singapore! Ha…Where else? 🙂 And that is where my love affair with crabs began. It was followed by multiple visits to a lot of restaurants back home at Delhi, all in search of crabs.  The one that we loved the most was the butter garlic version that Swagath […]

Picture this: You’ve just returned with ten days worth of groceries…fruits, veggies, meat, et al. All bought according to the detailed menu you planned and are obviously feeling very much in control of all your lunches, dinners, fridge and ahem..your life. What?

My writing elsewhere: BBC GoodFood Middle East & The Indian Trumpet

I thought it will be nice to share my writing elsewhere each month.So here goes.This September find my words in: Encouraging your little munchkins to prepare their own lunch is perhaps the best way to fill their tummies with healthy meals, bring a smile on their faces as they take pride in their creations, teach […]

Roasted cherry tomatoes, basil and cheese pie.

I love Thursday evenings. Who doesn’t? More when they are accompanied by a good bruschetta, some cheese to nibble on and a glass of wine. Ripe tomatoes on bread that has been rubbed with cloves of garlic (I adore garlic) and lots of fresh basil.  Mature and pungent cheddar and fruity parmesan on my platter. […]

Eating my way through June.

Eating my way through June.

I agree I have been away for close to a month. But the thing is my hands were busy holding a fork and a spoon and sometimes a whisk, the mouth munching, the eyes salivating and well the mind was gainfully occupied thinking of what and when will be my next meal. Enough reasons not […]
