  • Happy Thanksgiving to all those who are celebrating it. Though in India we have our own harvest festival called “Sankranti” where we thank God for the blessings of a good harvest, but two American holidays like Thanksgiving and Halloween are catching up fast with the globe-trotting urban Indians. MNC’s too now a days host Thanksgiving lunch / dinner for their employees, thus bridging the gaps between two different cultures or may be a reason to lighten up the workloads.  Moreover 5-star […]

  • ” Soup is cuisine’s kindest course, it breathes reassurance,  dispels the distressing effect of cold winter days, it warms up your soul and fills your heart with hope. It comforts you, uplifts your mood and recharge you to face the life once again.”  These past two weeks have been really difficult for me,  filled with lots of pain and agony that life has suddenly decided to bless me with. Every problems and difficulties does not have solutions, you have to […]

  • Wishing my fellow Indian “ Very Happy Republic day“, India rocks, Indian food rocks, and there are off course tons of things that needs to be straighten up before we can actually and rightfully say this. But on an optimistic note, we look forward to the golden days when finally the serpents of corruption and poverty will cease to hiss.

  • I always have this liking for game bird and prefer country chicken over the poultry one, but I have never tried a turkey before. Roasting a whole chicken in the oven has its own gastronomical pleasures, so I started first with Cornish hens which were a huge success and this pushes my limit further to try the turkey next. So when turkey starts appearing at the middle of November (how they are so seasonal ?)  announcing the Thanksgiving, Holidays and […]

  • You know what we did last weekend..we cooked this – see below the pic…two Cornish hens roasted in oven and glazed with maple and honey. This was kind of some kitchen experiments for us, as we never cooked a whole chicken before. The idea of cooking a whole chicken never seems to me too appealing, but then perspectives changes with time and there is always a first time for everything.  It not only brings us out of our comfort zone but also pushes ourselves to new limits, […]
