Flurys in Kolkata | The Legend Still Continues in Park Street

August 2, 2014

Flury's in Park Street

Five generations of Fine Confection… Flurys! Flurys is legendary. Everybody who has any Kolkata connection, has some nostalgic associations with Flurys. Even today with each locality and neighborhood having many confectioneries and cake shops – some locally bred brands (Cookie Jar, Cakes etc) or multinational franchises, Flurys still manages to create a distinctive image in […]

Ramadan Food Walk with Calcutta Walks

‘Why do you need to go on a food tour in Kolkata with a guide?’ My friends and family members were pretty baffled. I, who have been going around each and every lane, bylane, market, sweet shop, food kiosk, restaurant in Kolkata – with my Nikon, smartphone and the Z-Sisters in tow. Well that’s true. […]

Scoop In Outram Ghat | Yesss, It Still Exists!

Scoop at Princep Ghat, Kolkat

A comment left on my Instagram post by my cousin sis who had been my closest friend during my childhood, left me in utter confusion… ‘Does Scoop still exist in Kolkata? Khoj korish toh/do check!’ The referred scoop is not an ordinary scoop of ice cream or a new piece of gossip doing the media […]

Opening Up My Bengali Kitchen For Dima Sharif | #RamadanSpecial2014

Ramadan Kareem! As I leave Dubai for the summers and settle down in Kolkata for almost two months (my summer hibernation as I like to call it, and probably for a lot of Dubai expats as well), I am overcome with tremendous guilt. Guilt for leaving my adopted home for far too long and also […]

Ramadan in Dubai | The Iftars And Suhoors Around Town

June 26, 2014

Iftar offering at Qbara

Ramadan is just around the corner. So are the summer holidays. While previously, you would expect the summer expat story to begin with many expats leaving Dubai for their respective homes during the summers, nowadays I find that a lot of families are actually staying back here (where else would you get air-conditioned car parks?)

Omnia Gourmet by Chef Silvena | Decadence, Deliciousness & A Lot of Expectations!

June 13, 2014

Omnia Gourmet by Silvena

Everybody in Dubai knows celebrity chef Silvena Rowe right now. Solving weekly kitchen problems as the Domestic Diva in the popular Friday Magazine and doling out scrumptious exotic-do-able-at-home recipes, she is probably the only resident celebrity chef in Dubai. She is also the only celebrity chef on my speed dial. I have been following her […]

The Gourmet Starters

The Bengali Gourmet evening at BookMunch was very important and special to me. This was the first time I had attempted to showcase Bengali Cuisine in a bit more elaborate way – a modern menu that had been created with all the nuances of traditional Bengali cuisine. It was for the ‘Cook The Books’ in […]

Eat Greek | Kadaifi Jumbo Prawns Or Flamed Grilled Whole Calamari?

June 4, 2014

Untitled-3

It’s after a long long time that eating in a Dubai restaurant felt like a dream. Not because of the sun rays that reflected off the blue sea waters over the terrace or the dreamy, lit-up white nests hanging from the ceiling cast magical shadows on the distressed wooden floors. But simply because of a […]

Cook the Books with Ishita Saha

I don’t think that I have left any stone unturned in telling the world about my roots, where I come from and how delicious Bengali food is. Often I am inundated with mails from readers – Where can we have a Bengali Meal in Dubai? Is there any good Bengali Restaurant in Dubai? I don’t […]

Celebration | A Decade Of Mommyhood… Que Sera Sera!

Big Z turned 10 years today. Sounds clichéd – yes, time absolutely flies and I don’t know where it flew. My 16 weeks ultras0no report had pronounced that we were having a boy. S however was very sure that it was a girl and had already fixed upon the name Shrishti, meaning Creation. She is […]

Tandoori Mango with spiced honey

I know that promotion for Mangoes are everywhere around the city at this hour. I am on a severe meal plan and Mangoes are no where mentioned in the plan. I read Madhu’s post Look Who’s Returned to My Mango Trees (she hasn’t written much about mangoes though) and felt hopelessly romantic with the thought […]

Alaskan Crab at Dynasty

The World’s Tastiest dish has been awarded to the Ceviche at Chez Wong in Lima, Peru and the above video is almost like the one that rolls out when a nominated actor at the Oscars gets up to receive his Best Actor award. Well, I am back from London having witnessed a coronation of sorts […]

A Trip to Rajasthan To Meet The Farmers | Is Your Spice Procured Ethically? Produced Organically?

March 31, 2014

This post captures four locations, two time zones, different sets of people and many emotions – a posh cafe restaurant, an organic store, a small Farmers’ Market – all in the heart of Dubai and a Farmers’ Festival and a few organic farm lands, thousands of kilometers away in Rajasthan. What is the relationship between […]

We have been friends with the Nevatias for long – they are more like our family now – a Marwari extension of a Bengali family. My blog is inspired by people, places and memories. It actually started off with recipes created by friends or at our own humble kitchen. Lately, I have been writing a […]

PLEASE NOTE THAT WHEN I WROTE THIS REVIEW, MY FAMILY AND I HAD A REALLY GOOD EXPERIENCE. RECENTLY, I HAVE HEARD MANY COMPLAINTS FROM MY FRIENDS AND READERS WHO HAVE VISITED THE HOUSE OF CURRY ON MY RECOMMENDATION. I HAVE WRITTEN TO THE RESTAURANT TOO. Being an Indian I am very skeptical about Indian restaurants. […]
