  • Last weekend I went to do some food prop shopping, just wanted to add a piece or two in my growing white collection. Now, dont raise your eyebrow, I know what you are thinking, well..well..I am learning to take some good photo shots and currently being obsessed with food photography. Whether you are an amateur or a pro photographer, shopping for food props is something very difficult to resist, at least for me as I have an undying penchant for crockerys. […]

  • It was a long silent winter night with moon shone brightly in the dark sky flirting with zillions of stars, we were on a road trip winding our ways through the jungles of Madhya Pradesh, the central state of India, where the big wild cats occasionally meets and greets you, just like on a wild safari trip, dotted with some tribal villages along its rustic paths, a strong waft of charred eggplants rustles up its way towards us, leaving us […]

  • 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 […]

  • Celebrating Christmas with this rich fruit cake. We wishes everyone who stops by “Merry Christmas”, with loads of happiness and prosperity. Fruit cakes are some century old traditions that are being made specially during Christmas and there are many variations to it, some are soaked in spirits, some are in fruit liquer, whatever their flavours are, they are bound to be present during this season and without them  the celebration seems to be incomplete. Late September is usually a good […]

  • Tofu is something which I am very fond of, because of its versatility, its ease of preparation and extremely friendly nature, it easily mingle with any dish and adds texture to any kind of dish. Tofu has no flavor or taste as such but it readily absorbs the flavor and taste of the dish in which it is being used. In one of my visit to Bangkok, I had these silken tofu dunked in some fruity flavoured syrup and I […]

  • Fall seems to be gone away, so quickly that it barely registered in my mind, except my few fall foliage trips, trees seems to shed leaves early and few days of surprise snow in October, pushed us in the winter with prolonged cold days, sometimes with intermittent warm sunny days but with a chill in the air, which is very typical of winter mornings. A warm hearty bowl of soup or stew is all what we needed, what we craved for […]
