The Japanese Mango Mania

For a country that planted their first ever mango tree in 1986, to consistently falling-off for next 8 years, with failed products. To finally selling a spotless pair of Sun Egg brand mangoes being sold for 2500 USD, Japan has come a full circle with mango cultivation. The hard work, precision and perseverance is quite…

The love letter from Japan

Building a Taj Mahal for your lover is not an option anymore considering the obvious numerous problems but that in no ways stops you from making something real and life-size for the one you care most. Imagine an Indian who settled in far-east Island nation Japan, 30 odd years back and married a local, but…

The real Sino deal

One major reason for the catastrophic failures of restaurants these days is food not being the priority of the restaurant, which I have reiterated time and again. This has created a certain pattern visible to general eye, people hoard to a new place with glittery interiors and party factors, the chef is nowhere in the…

Tracing footprints in Assam

Commercial establishments i.e. a restaurant wouldn’t also want to lose the same opportunity of business and would happily tap the option of creating a grill festival. The…

Unwind with rewind!!!

Old Delhi is never gonna earn a breather, somewhere in some part of Delhi, is always singing the tune of this place either by simply visiting the place or getting the food ordered here; But the road less traveled is taken by few chefs who hail from the place and curate a complete festival in…

Unearthing of the lost !!

In the past 2 decades we have connoisseurs, curators , critics and historians all specifically for food. what’s breaking to the obvious next level is a reviver. Someone who is the lone torch bearer for a cuisine or recipe. India unfortunately does not have its food history documented in a proper text for unknown reasons,…

In the plethora of festival, comes one that’s really unique and “The Songs & Dances festival of North-East” happened at Indira Gandhi Indoor Stadium, New-Delhi on 11th April 2015. The festival was organized by the North-East council as a sheer activity to promote the deep-rooted and ravishing culture of seven sister states of North-eastern India,…
