Homemade and Healthy

Too much fast food is not good for your health. Even at home, we usually aimlessly settle for the fat-rich food while snacking – for the simple reason that it looks (and sounds) more appealing and is way tastier. I’m not going to argue about the taste but in this age, where most of us are suffering from obesity or simply trying to stay fit, the high calorie and high

Mary Had a Little Lamb

The first time I had lamb was last year during Durga Puja (October-ish ) at Food Station, College Street, Kolkata. It was ‘Roasted Lamb cooked in Oyster Sauce‘ as far as I remember and it was heavenly. I would have licked my plate clean if only I were at home and not in a restaurant. From then on, I have had lamb a number of times, either at home or

Baking A Cake – Do it YOUR Way!

While baking a cake, I love to experiment and try out new stuff. Maybe add some blueberries or crushed almonds or simply drizzle some fruity syrup over the plain old basic cake – Anything. Anything and everything will do. Gradually you inherit the good sense of what goes with what. And if not, what’s life without a few mistakes, or in this case, a few badly turned / burnt cakes?

The Veggie Kitchen

I’m going vegan for a week. Being a meat lover and someone who hardly has her vegetables at meal time, this was turning out to be quite a hellish challenge to overcome. I spent the first two days craving for some meat. Anything meaty. Any meat look-a-like. Today is the sixth day and I’m more than okay. I guess I’ll survive. I was always a fussy eater. Not this. Not

Maggi Mania

On Mondays, they serve Matar Paneer in the mess. But as my friend down the hall puts it, it is better described as “water Paneer” – a few peas and an even fewer pieced of cottage cheese swimming in a curry that’s all but water. Needless to spell out, you walk out of the mess feeling less than full. Two hours on, you fall prey to crazy hunger pangs. The

Midnight Demons : Counter Your Cravings

It is 11:00 p.m. You are watching T.V. Suddenly, a Dominoz commercial appears on the screen with their latest schemes and a sumptuous pizza flashes on the screen, and WHOOOSH…!!! U get severe hunger pangs, and well, you go to the kitchen, search for stock of chocolates, cakes or your favorite cookies to munch on. For most of the people, their midnight Maggi is the ultimate solace for these cravings.

The Business of Food

Every business has a set of people who it targets, in some cases a particular group of society. They fight competition to satisfy their target customers and attract them with different marketing strategies. Every business might have a particular saturation point beyond which it is tough to expand or experiment. But, if there is one business which doesn’t have any such restrictions it is “The Business of Food”. The food
