I’ve spent almost a decade in Dubai – the longest stint in any city after Kolkata, the city where I was born. Possessive about Dubai, I try to convince every guest that we have had, about the virtues and beauty that lay beyond the glitzy shopping malls or the swanky cars. For example, the desert in a star-lit night or Bastakia – the art alleys running amidst the traditional houses with its’ alluring wind-towers. Getting lost in the hidden galleries is my favourite past-time!
Dubai is my adopted home currently and most of the food posts have been juxtaposed against my Kolkata nostalgia or my living experiences in the UAE. Culture, history, recipes, food stories and nostalgia unfold amidst the urban backdrop of Dubai, in most of my writings. Hence, sometimes I’ve not been able to demarcate between Dubai and Kolkata posts. Do click on this link for all the Recipes, Food Reviews, Food Events and Travel Banters that are there in the blog. And here, for all posts that fall under the category of Dubai and the UAE.
