A fresh plate: 2014

A fresh plate: 2014

A very Happy New Year to all you lovely readers. I absolutely love new beginnings for they give us a chance to look back on how the last year fared, an opportunity to start afresh, several new possibilities to grow, to learn and to experiment.   Fresh plates and clean slates I love them both. […]

Getting my cooking mojo back: with DinnerTime.

Getting my cooking mojo back: with DinnerTime.

One fine morning about three weeks back I announced to my family that I was considering employing a part time cook for I didn’t have the time or the energy to prepare meals for all of us each day. Loud gasp from all of them! Strange looks and mumbling under breath followed. Translated it meant but […]

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 […]

Meeting George.
