Burano

  Burano…What can I say about this mini island? I guess the pictures will do most of the talking for me about this place. The island is a short boat ride from Murano (Covered in my last post on travel). My first step onto the island and my impressions go like “There is a lot…

Grilled Peach with Vanilla Mascarpone, Sour Sauce and Crumble

I haven’t always been fond of peaches but I guess since I started experimenting with them, I seem to like them all the more. They have a slightly fatty taste along with the middle level fruitiness if you kind of think of the flavour of a peach fruit as a perfume. It needs a bit…

A Walk through Murano

I decided to take a break for a week and travel around Italy sometime in the October of 2013. While I would have loved to travel to a few Northern parts Italy, Sicily and Naples, I realised I would have had to take about a couple of months to travel to all these wonderful places…

Luqaimat – My Style

I read somewhere today morning, “Food has no religion”. It is one of the truest facts globally. We Indians, eat Italian, Mexican, Chinese and other cuisines most of the time…Similarly, Indian curry is consumed widely in England.

Pepper Spiked Falsa Mojito

Nothing gives me more joy than getting my hands on seasonal produce and devouring it for the stretch of the season. Of course, the happiness is a bit short-lived as the season has to end but then, that’s the sign of another season setting in. That’s how the cycle works. It reminds us to be…

Fried Noodles – An Indo-Chinese version

Food always tends to get regionalised. Lets say for example, the Indian curries find themselves to be made a bit to suit the European palate or the Chinese foods that tend to be Indianised so as to suit the Indian food scene. It’s not particularly a bad thing. It’s a way culture evolve and help…
