When and How to Eat

Posted on Updated on

Dr Benedetto Reisch and Eva Maria Hasenauer at Lanserhof showing the way.

It may sound very rudimentary and basic but most of us have no idea of how to and when to eat for our optimum health and (yes! its true) enjoyment.  Here, in Germany, coddled by forests, meadows, mountains  Im being re-educated. It’s Dr Benedetto Reisch   the brilliant and knowledgabble  medical director  of Lanserhof, Europe’s well-known and award winning oasis of preventive medicine who shows me the way forward, while the dynamic Eva Maria Hansnauer ensures perfection in every detail of the stay. What we eat, how we eat and what time we eat is a very crucial part of the  LANS Med Concept which consists of four stages of therapy developed by Dr. F. X. Mayr:  Due to space constraint Im unable to fit in the principles of eating right. Should you need them please email rashmiudyaingh2016@gmail.com

Mixed marriages on our plates… an increasing trend in many a Mumbai restaurant. Be it tandoori Tikka in  erotic union with  taco (Social’s “tikka taco”) Gulabjamun cross fertilised with doughnut (Bombay Canteen’s gulabnut) etc. And “Glocal Junction” proudly announces its “global local” mixed breed pedigree in it’s name.

Arabian Nights comes to Andheri? Yes it does.  I just love the bustling energy in the suburbs and this Arabian Nights reincarnation aka OPA is yet another testimonial to that.

Review: The Clearing House

Posted on

It sure is the coolest haute restaurant to open in the past few months. And that’s not just because it’s uberstylish and housed in Asia’s largest ice factory ( a part of it is still operational). It’s because it delivers  personalized warmth and hospitality along with global flavors.

Happily many a new restaurant are giving priority to our well-being. Like The Korner House where the brilliant chef, author and TV host Vicky Ratnani even offers up “bowls of health and flavor” (Please note flavor is given equal importance.)

Review: Luna Gusta

Posted on Updated on

I’d heard about  the hot new opening at  St Regis: “Luna Nudo Gusta”. And the lovely  mouthful of a name had me mystified and confused. Luna Gusta’s ambiance is high gloss nostalgia with a contemporary sheen.
