Last week, I received an invite for a foodie event hosted by Danone. This type of event is not my usual thing, but since the brand was Danone – which is the yogurt staple in our house, I was interested to find out what they had new and cooking.
The get-together was officially to talk about their new line of Greek style yoghurt, but really it was an eye-opening discussion on all things health and fitness.
The keyword was #thehealthyswap – and the theme was how you could stay fit without suffering hunger pangs, by simply substituting healthy options instead of junk food. This theme is probably age-old, but I have to say Danone covered it really well, with a talk by a knowledgeable nutritionist, and cooking demos by Chef Abhijit Saha.
Regardless of when you are set up within your very own backyard, or just located in a picnic area, perhaps maybe even in a campground, being aware of outdoor food safety tips or measures will very easily make certain that both you and the family members of yours are actually shielded through food-borne health issues and avoid crashing through common accidents.
If you live in north or central Bangalore, District 6 is the place I recommend for a chill hang-out session with friends over a beer, or two, or many.
Even if you live in other parts of Bangalore, hoofing it to District 6 is not at all a bother as the place is situated within a 2-min walk from a Metro station (Sandal Soap Factory) on the North-South line.
Our gang went there for a relaxed Sunday afternoon to catch up over drinks and their limited time only sizzler menu.
It’s been a long, long time since I had some good (and I mean gooood) Pan-Asian food. So when I got an invite to come try the Mandarin Calling food festival at Oko in Hotel Lalit Ashok, I didn’t think twice before accepting.
I’ve visited Lalit Ashok several times before, but it’s been mostly on work – seminars and conferences, and the like. This was my first time there dining at a proper sit-down restaurant.
K and I went for drinks and dinner with friends last Friday night.
Usually, we don’t go out alone together as one of us has to stay home with the kids, but this time, it was my birthday weekend, and so both of us decided to make a night of it.
We hadn’t planned where to go, but when an invite dropped into our inbox inviting us to the newly opened Irish House resto-bar in RMZ EcoWorld, it sounded fun, and it was close by to our place (a huge consideration when we accept blog invites).
