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,…

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. Nothing better than a combination of fresh fruits, nuts, oats and yoghurt or milk for health.

Passion Fruit and Orange Granita

I had my first taste of a Passion fruit on one of my travels to Sri Lanka. The restaurant there served fruit platters in the morning before breakfast and surprise surprise, one of the fruits was a Passion fruit. Now, the first time one is served this wonder, you actually think, how do I eat…

Cheese Scones with Apple Chutney

  Scones – The tea-time treat is synonymous with Great Britain. Any typical English tea-time is known to be kind of incomplete without Scones and Jam and clotted cream. In fact, English tea-time ceremonies have a variety of such beautiful treats such as Scones, cucumber and cheese sandwiches, Macaroons, Small tarts along with a collection…

Watermelon and Asian Papaya Salad Bites

  So, the past weekend, I ended up binge eating. It isn’t something unusual for me. Weekends are the two days when my family goes into a cooking spree. My father is a wonderful cook and he takes the kitchen onto himself with his cooking (Usually for Indian cook books). He isn’t the extreme experimenter…
