  February  is  such  a  dreary  month  here.  Buried  under  deep  snow  with  temperatures  plummeting  to  about  twenty  below celsius  and  daylight  is  still  rationed.  It  is  dark  both  going  to  as  well  as  coming  back  from  work.  The  lack  of  sunlight  actually  gives  rise  to  ‘winter  blues’  also  known  as  ”  Seasonal  affective  disorder’,

    As  you  know  I  stay  away  from  traditional  baking.  There  is  one  exception  though.  If  the  header  starts  with  phrases  like  No  bake  Cake,  Easy  to  assemble  Tart  and  such,  well   that  is  a  different  story.  You  have  my  undivided  attention. I  am  very  excited  to  share  with  you  that  our  family

    Celebrations  need  sweets.  Period. In  as  much  as  we  write  volumes  about  the  bitter  side  of  sweets,  we  can’t  do  without  them.  Not  in  my  household.  You  see  my  husband  has  a  big  sweet  tooth. As  I  said  before,  the  innocent  enquiry   after  supper  about  the  leftover  sweets,  if  any,  actually  translates

  I  just  read  this  article  in  Saveur  “15  Indian  desserts  that  give  you  a  tour  of  the  country “.  Indian  sweets  are  anything  but  boring.  I  totally  agree  with  the  editors.  The  sweets  can  be  dry  or  dripping  with  syrup,  milk  or  flour  based,  a  vegetable  or  fruit  can  be  the  star  ingredient,  most

  Imagine  a  world  without colour.  Just  close  your  eyes  and  try.  It  is  hard,  isn’t  it  ? We  live  in  a  world  of  colours.  The  beautiful  flowers,  sweet  fruits,  birds,  attract  us  with  their  myriad  and  brilliant  colours. Research  has  shown   that  we  prefer  coloured  things  over  white,  even  as  a  child.  Taking

  I  am  a  sucker  when  it  comes  to  tag  lines  like  ‘Fresh,  Easy,  No-cook  meals’,  ‘No  bake  summer  fruit  tarts’  or,  ‘Machine  not  needed  ice cream’.  Baking  is  not  exactly  my  forte. I  have  been  looking  for  a  tart  recipe  without  eggs,  fit  for  a  beginner  ‘tart  maker’  like  me.  The  August  cover  of

  A  short  drive  from  the  busy  city  of  Rome, felt  like  a  long  step  back  in  time.  The  beautiful  medieval  village  of  Mazzano  Romano  is  home  to  Chef  Fabio  Bongianni.  Halfway  in  Law  school,  he  realized  his  true  calling  in  life  was  food,  not  felons.  A  change  of  course  and  training  in  Paris  later,

  Where  would  we  be  without  the  Sun?  Take  a  moment  and  think  about  it.  Wouldn’t  it  be  safe  to  say  that  our  whole  existence  would  be  at  stake?  Our  ancestors  realized  pretty  early  on  that  Sun  is  the  most  important  of  all  the  cosmic  bodies.  Hence  every  Sun  centric  event  became  important  spiritual  and
