Palatable or not!?!

Much fanfare and updates on social media about the New Delhi Palate Fest 2015 had me curious enough to plan a day there. Though my last years experience was a disaster at the same fair, this year promised to be a bit different. Well! The crowds seemed to be huge and food overpriced ( social […]

Undaunted, we went at with a true […]

Ode to Le Cake

It slowly wafted into the olfactory passages, teasing them with the citrus- sultry orange zest, sweet heat of cinnamon, gooey darkness of chocolate and the spicy sense of dark rum – all rolled into one but then each released individually, in slow motion, one after the other like the helium filled gas balloons that we […]

2 Sangrias, 6 Starters & 1 Eclectic space

When the wine sisterhood group on FB announced a Sangria night at the much in news restaurant Lavaash by Saby; excitement ran high and seven of us immediately signed up. We drove into a secluded driveway of a building with tasteful exteriors. Valet took custody of the car and last minute dress straightening, hair primping […]

The pasta bowl company

The pasta bowl company is a quaint little Italian place bursting with loads of good food and vibes. I first tried this place in 2013, when it was newly launched. Had a few delightful meals there, though found the selection to be small. Loved the cosy interiors with pics of Italy and some pasta stuck […]

Berry oaty smash!

Intending them as some Valentine day love for thyself, I purchased a box of luscious strawberries. But the unusually warm weather and some neglect on my part, ensured a few of the gorgeous berries getting spoilt. Worrying over the waste, I sat down to surf the net for some  quick n easy cake/muffin recipe to consume […]

And there was this Willy Wonka’ s version of a pickle shop with all kinds of sweet and savoury preparations in huge glass jars -some were yesteryear friends like mango, chilies, […]

It was a veritable smorgasbord for any […]

Ginger & Carrot cake with a twist

Come winter time and my memories are of “gajar ka halwa” being prepared in quantities generous enough to feed a couple of large baraats. This was the scene at my house, nani’s house, my friends houses; year after year – I had “gajar ka halwa” coming out of my ears. As a result, I was totally put off by it for […]
