The 12th Upper Crust Food And Wine Show, Mumbai

“There is no love sincerer than the love of food” Hello my yum tums, I know its been a while since I last posted, but like I mentioned before, it’s not that easy when you have no access to the unlimited extra high speed WiFi back home. Anyways, this is just a few thoughts from my side about the most happening event in town. Due to being pressed for time, I haven’t been able to write much and add my creative touch to it. But I still do hope that by reading this you will get the jist of it…

The Burger Raja

Finally the King has arrived here… And it was indeed a royal, grand opening People started standing in lines from ten in the morning and they seemed to only get longer as the day went by. I reached at around five in the evening and the crowds were ridiculous so decided to hop into Forever 21, do a little shopping and then head back after a while.

Being a True Parsee!

Yum tums!!! Greetings to you all ☺ I’ve had such an eventful weekend which all began last evening with my first ever attended “Navjote” which my cute, little cousins received and ended with a grand lunch this afternoon at a house warming celebration. But I’ll only be talking about my grand Parsee meal as I was really fascinated with the while arrangement. Before, I tell you more about it , let me give you an insight on what a Navjote is all about as I’m sure most of you will not be familiar with it.

Chef Riya’s Twist of Taste

I am truly in love with Vikas Khanna. I just admire the way he cooks on national television. He is such a humble chef! They say the world is your oyster. Well I say, food is mine. There is so much one can do with it. And he has definitely helped me believe that! I remember very clearly. It was a Saturday night sometime last year and I was getting too bored. I felt like having pasta but not the boring, classic mac and cheese. (not that I hate it) When you are independent, your brain tends to be more…

Have a bite?

Everyone loves sandwiches. They are the best thing to turn to after a week of crazy eating. Simple and Light is what makes them so special! This is a really simple Tomato and Ham Sandwich.

European Calling!

It is not very easy to find those kind of places where you can just chill on your own, eat some good food and still be able to enjoy the ambience around you. When mum came to visit me, we decided to lunch here. From the time we entered till the time we left, I must say that we were looked after very well. The waiters kept coming and asking us how we liked the food and if there was anything more that we needed. The menu was very elaborate and had some really good dishes. I had already pictured…

The Yum Tum Spag Bol!

Nothing like a bowl of Spag Bol on a cold rainy night! Spaghetti Bolognese is one of the most lovable dishes across the world and is a wholesome meal too. Known in Italian as ragù alla Bolognese which is basically a meat-based sauce originating from Bologna, Italy… The sauce is the highlight of this dish! The earliest documented recipe of an Italian meat-based sauce known as ragù served with pasta comes from late 18th century Imola, near Bologna. In 1891, Pellegrino Artusi first published a recipe for a meat sauce characterized as being “bolognese”. While many traditional variations do exist,…

Cookie-Cake Cups!

Chocolate Fondants have always been an all-time favourite dessert. They are also known as lava cakes and chocolate molten cakes all over the world. The United States-based chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten claims to have invented molten chocolate cake in New York City in 1987, but the French chef and chocolatier Jacques Torres has disputed that claim, arguing that such a dish already existed in France. They are often considered as “naughty” foods. Now I get why! 😉 On the first day of this great Indian festival-Diwali, I decided to do a little twist to it. My Limited Edition: C

Saucy Baked Chicken!

A Classic Roast Chicken is a traditional British meal. You will find it on the table at every big occasion. It has always been the perfect food to have on a cold winter day keeping the soul warm. The wonderful aroma you get from it cannot be compared to anything else. Inspired by the Great Jamie Oliver, I decided to do my own variation of a classic roast chicken done with chicken pieces instead.
