GASTRONOMY-KA HEAVEN

Posted on Updated on

 

Starry night with Indian culinary superstars, Manjit Singh Gill flanked by Gaggan, Sriram Aylur, Srijith Gopinathan and Ms Roser Torres, Manish mehrotra, Vineet Bhatia, Thomas Zachiaras.

India is shining. And how!  I’ve never seen such a full-on star cast of Indian chefs together. I write from the stunning seaside city of San Sebastian (which has the largest number of Michelin starred restaurants in the world). Fittingly enough the gigantic gourmet Gastronomika is taking place here. Eye-opening sessions, cooking demos with tastings, tours and more. And amid all this high-end gastronomy, India is the guest of honor. The dynamic director Roser Torres dons  a red salwar kameez especially to welcome  dream-team India. Our very own, worlds 7thb est, Asia’s best Gaggan Anand has flown in from Bangkok. What a cluster of Michelin stars:  Vineet Bhatia  (London), Sriram Aylur (London), Srijith Gopinathan (SanFrancisco). Saurabh Udinia  and Manish Mehrotra (New Delhi) and covering both North and South India  are Manjit Singh Gill and his dreamteam, And from Mumbai our very own chef Thomas Zachariah are making India proud. Jai hind!

Review: Kode

Gutsy. Inspired. Innovative. Kaleidoscopic. Cutting edge. Quirky with quality… those are some of the ways to try and decode super achiever Zorawar Kalra’s “Kode”.

Review: Arth

Posted on

Swaggering shimmering sprawling duplex interiors by high octane brand Gauri Khan. No gas, charcoal only kitchen helmed by Best Lady Chef Tourism award winner Amnindner Sandhu. That’s Khar’s brand new Arth. Is there any hope behind the hype?

We welcome this high energy gastro bar with low prices (average dish Rs 450), compact global menu (some dishes need to be fine tuned), expansive list of wines and innovative cocktails.

Review: Su Casa

Posted on

In Su Casa the cheery, high ceilinged ambiance, the service (thanks Akram) and drinks delight. So even though it has a clichéd crowd pleasing menu with many a dish which lack panache and consistency Su Casa ends up offering a pleasant experience.
