new year 2012

Before moving ahead, a small retrospect of the year gone by is worth mentioning. Best of year 2011 @ saffronstreaks is here:

Most popular here –

Bengali chicken rezala

Navratan korma

Fish Kabiraji cutlet

Hilsa flavored with mango-mustard sauce

The toughest and longest I prepare

Turkey roulade stuffed with mushroom-cranberry

Close to my heart –

Christmas rich fruit cake

Indian shahi paneer malai kofta

Experimental –

Strawberry bhapa sandesh with strawberry glaze

The most controversial food story – who owns the rasgulla ? (it sparks off many anti-Bengali hate mails !)

The best and unique thing I ever had – Baked alaska with a hidden rasmalai

It was a good blogging year for us, we have tried many new recipes, learn the basics of baking, been to many new places, explore different culture and cuisines, makes new blogger friends and have come across so many fabulous food bloggers which left us awestruck. By the end of the year, we moved to our home domain, and thus announcing a new beginning.

From the cold, wintry mornings of Boston, with days filled with mist and chill, we have moved further south to New Carolina, where bouquet of warm sunshine welcomes us in this beautiful valley with blue mountains and ridges lined with pine trees. And this also means that in the coming months we will be exploring more and more of Southern American cuisine, some foodie words that starts buzzing in our ear are hush puppies, sweet potato pie, pulled pork and off course the BBQ in Southern style. We will keep you updated about it in our Restaurant review section.

We have been to many places in NewEngland region, and has thoroughly enjoyed its cuisine and natural beauty, like fall in New Hampshire, but most of them are yet to be posted. The thunderous and wondrous Niagara falls, at Buffalo, an evening stroll along the Charles river of Boston, endless chomping and munching at food stalls at Quincy Market of Boston, a short cliff walk along the Vanderbilt mansions of Newport, and exploring the biggest cultural melting pot of the world – the Newyork city. Along with these, there are few more surprises on your way…

So stay hungry and stay tuned for more as we are committed to regular blogging

Will be shortly back

Have a wonderful year ahead
