Opening Up My Bengali Kitchen For Dima Sharif | #RamadanSpecial2014

July 9, 2014



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 […]

How Did I Fare In Showcasing My Bengali Cuisine? | On Zee TV Middle East

June 9, 2014


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



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 […]

Grilled Lobsters - soft and melting in the mouth - a super wow!

The Rotisserie Friday Brunch at Caravan @ Ritz Carlton that takes you through a journey of the spice route - India, Arabia and the Mediterranean. My pick here... camel milk dulce de leche shot, *sous vide* pear balls, the grilled lobster and the Apple Pie!

#GoodMorningDubai #Friday #brunch #latergram #Caravanonthewalk #RitzCarlton #TheWalk #Dubai #myDubai #dubaifood #dubaiunblogged #FF All prepared for Halloween? Pumpkin Curving session at the Generation Creation Brunch in Mazina last year... one of those rare moments when my entire family goes wild!!! #Halloween #throwbackthursday #tbt #Mazina #AddressMarina #DubaiMarina #Dubai #myDubai #dubaiunblogged #ishitaunblogged @theaddresshotels A morning spent in unlearning a few myths on healthy eating (smaller portions few times a day or juicing is good for your body etc) and learning a completely new philosophy - the Viva Mayr philosophy from Dr Stossier. Viva Mayr in Austria has been voted one of the most luxurious spas in the world. I am most curious about the *spa cuisine*. The food wisdom was followed up appropriately by a gorgeous looking healthy spread at the @Comptoir102.

#breakfast #latergram #VivaMayr #DrStossier #healthyeating #Dubai #myDubai #dubaifood #dubaiunblogged #ishitaunblogged Pot half empty or half full? An instance when *half empty* reflects a great moment spent licking a spoon!

@coffeecakesandrunning Touched, for making *Mishti Doi* for us... it was amazing!

#GoodMorningDubai #MishtiDoi #weekend #latergram #Dubai #myDubai #dubaiunblogged #ishitaunblogged Good Morning! What a brilliant night it had been... sitting right in front of the Burj Khalifa, watching the Dubai fountains dancing away every half an hour, chatting to Chef Marcus about traditional Japanese food and discovering *Avishkar* - the boy from Darjeeling! Thanks Asad for the history behind the Dynamite and the Californian rolls.

Brilliant food (still dreaming about the beef tenderloin, the black cod in miso, the crunchy king prawn in kafir lime and the chocolate brownie with raspberry sorbet... and oh, the super spicy Thai Bellini), stunning view... this is the newly launched outdoor lounge - Zeta. And unlike other Dubai lounges, a lot of kids around in a separate dining area. So this can get as romantic or as family friendly as you want. The only challenge that I foresee are the summers - but I think that by that time they would have another *cool* plan in place!
