You know what they say about freedom: nothing says it better than food. Okay, I have no idea if anyone actually says that, but that's besides the point. The point being that today marks India's 70th year of freedom. What some may call the original Brexit, or All India Bhackchod calls 'the day India resigned.' (which if you watched yet, you definitely should!) Coincidentally,…

There is an iconic scene from the movie Chocolat, when the Comte de Renauld, mayor of the small French village, sneaks into Vianne Rocher’s chocolaterie to destroy it - convinced that it is leading the citizens of his town astray from their faith. An eccentric battle ensues where he mercilessly cuts the head of a chocolate-sculpted woman and proceeds to…

It’s 9 AM. In the midst of four family members scrambling around to get dressed, whilst constantly glued to the weather app to see how many times the climate plans to change in the next 8 hours, and evaluating the modes of transport available, you can bet its chaos in the #GlobalGulatis holiday abode of Eaton Mews.

It’s no secret that small plates give me big joy. So when faced with the challenge of picking a venue for the father’s last dinner in London, Tapas seemed like a safe bet. Considering we were spending the night at my uncle’s near Brixton, whose food scene I’m less familiar with, the raving reviews about Boqueria gave us little need…

Saanya Gulati's Blog, La Barca

Although Lower Marsh has only recently been in the limelight for its indie cafes and quirky vibe, La Barca has been around for the last three decades Tucked away right at the end of the lane, its rather traditional and unassuming exteriors make it easy to miss. It doesn’t help that it’s located across the colourful Cubana that is constantly…

There are few things that prevent me from getting out of bed for weekend brunch. Even nights spent watching ‘Master of None,’ which was last month's procrastination project. Plus, the weather finally reaching double digits made for a pleasant walk down Westminster Bridge, barring the occasional tourists who give you strange looks for power walking. It doesn’t help that I’m…

Saanya Gulati's Blog, Pancake Recipe

The versatility of the pancake never ceases to amaze me. From the flat to the fluffy, thin and thick, to the buttermilk, ricotta, and rice-based, I’m all for discovering new flavours and textures. When it comes to making pancakes, I’ve generally steered clear. That is, until I woke up one morning with an unexpected craving. The prospect of trekking for…

Amidst the recent explosion of healthy Indian beverage brands, juices are clearly dominating the market, from the cold-pressed to the raw-pressed and the antidotes of the market. Throw in some jargon like natural, or no added preservatives, add some pretty packaging, you’re good to go! Not Your Average Healthy Drink But juicy as they may be, there are other health-drinks…
