Galette with Brie, Caramelised Pineapple and Cranberries

I took a day off from work today. I do that occasionally, when there is a work pile up and things start stressing me out mentally. I find that staying away from work sometimes, from what I do everyday, from the people I see everyday – I feel better and think more clearly about new…

Watermelon & Lemon-Mint Pops

I like the trend of these food inspired days popping up. Not sure how these have come into being or what even inspired their creations but they are definitely something that unite the world. As an example, last week was “Popsicle week”. Now, who would have created something absolutely bizarre like that but then hey,…

Boozy Lemon Granita

My parents and I went shopping to a fancy supermarket last week that stocked quite a lot of amazing goodies. While I snooped around and got myself some amazing mushrooms (recipes pending development), my mom wandered off on her own and got a couple of Italian Lemons since they looked amazing. Now, when you get…

Mango Smoothie Bowl with Paraphernalia

Smoothie’s are the “In” foods now and specially smoothie bowls. To be honest, there is nothing wrong with the fad methinks.

Greek Yoghurt with Apricots

Fresh Apricots are in season and I picked up some last week at the market. These have a very delicate taste and work really well if complimented with creamy flavour character ingredients. I had an apricot tart on my mind but being summers, the weather demanded something cool and healthy and hence, enter the idea…

Raw Mango – Onion Stuffed Bitter Gourds

Bitter gourds are one of the most misunderstood vegetables out there I feel. I havent met many people in my life who claim to love these vegetables. In fact, I seem to find people who only consume this vegetable – more as a manner of medication (yes, this vegetable is wonderous as a cure for…

Andhra Style Banana-Leaf Meal

I travelled to Bangalore, Karnataka last week for work. Now, there is no one to say that if you are traveling for work, you cannot find a little bit of time for some self-indulgence, right? My self-indulgence? Finding local, speciality food places – need not be fine-dine or proper restaurants but food that brings forth…

Takins of Bhutan

You cannot visit Bhutan and not get acquainted with the Takin. Takin is the national animal of Bhutan and is usually found in and around these regions of Himalayas. It has a rather odd appearance with its body appearing as that of a cow and its head as that of a goat. In fact, there…
