Last weekend, I had an exciting opportunity to go see Chef Shazia Khan cook up some delicacies for us, and hopefully pick up some nice recipes and cooking tips to share with you all.

For those who aren’t aware, Shazia Khan is an Indian chef. She participated in MasterChef India (season 2),and was the Runner-Up in the competition.

I went primarily for the foodie bits, but I came away impressed by Shazia as a person as well.

Southern Heat at Barbeque Nation

Southern Heat at Barbeque Nation

On Monday, Snubnose and I did our regular stop at Barbeque Nation to sample some of their special edition Southern Heat food festival that focuses on South Indian foods.

Barbeque Nation always does these events in a big way – so when you go, you can expect a humongous variety of dosas, idlis served table side, live counters serving food prepared to your taste, and tons more food in the main buffet. You never leave hungry from a Barbeque Nation.

There was heavy traffic (so what’s new about that in Bangalore) all the way to the restaurant, and Snubnose and I entered ravenous and ready to do justice to all the food on offer.

Anniversary Celebrations

Anniversary Celebrations

by

The kids always expect something big for our wedding anniversary celebrations, and it’s usually pretty easy to deliver as our anniversary is just one day prior to Children’s Day in India. So, there’s always something to do.

This year, we opted to do the Sunday brunch at Limelight in Royal Orchid Hotel off Airport Road.

Made With Janus Brandy

Last weekend, I was down with a very bad cough and cold. As I prepared to reach for my trusty Benadryl for some relief, K suggested that brandy would make a better alternative.

I have had a bottle of Janus Brandy in my pantry for quite some time lying unopened – ever since the Janus Brandy event, and it was definitely more tempting to have a glass of brandy than a thimbleful of cough medicine.

A Tea Tour At Sancha Tea Boutique

A Tea Tour At Sancha Tea Boutique

Sancha Tea House in Bangalore is a bright and airy space tucked away in a corner of Lavelle Road, so small from the outside, you can barely see it. A friend and fellow blogger Soumya was invited for a tea tasting session here, and she kindly invited me to tag along with her, so one extremely hot Saturday afternoon, we went up and down Lavelle Road trying to find a parking spot, and trying to find this place, amongst all the teeny tiny boutiques over there.
