Our recent visit to Ahmedabad coincided with the beginning of the International Kite Festival 2018, and we decided to drop in to get a glimpse of the fervour. I got my first-ever taste of the festival that Ahmedabad has been hosting since 1989, and which has made waves in the media especially in the last 4-5 years.
We passed by for a very short while and managed to get only a few glimpses of the festival. Even then, the atmosphere managed to fill our hearts with awe and joy.
Check out my latest post, about our experience at the International Kite Festival 2018.
A couple of days before Christmas, I had the honour of being invited to an exclusive preview of the festival buffet served at the uber-luxurious Plaza Premium Lounge India at the Bengaluru International Airport.

It was an enriching and enlightening experience for me to be part of The Culinary Symposium On Millets, held recently at MS Ramaiah University, New BEL Road. The Symposium was a run-up to the Organics & Millets International Trade Fair 2018, which is to be held at the Bangalore Palace in January 2018. Dignitaries from the Government of Karnataka, the F & B industry in India, as well as select food bloggers were present at the event.

What do you think of when you think of falooda?
I think of glasses filled with pink, pink, pink milk lined up on a street-side cart, vermicelli and chia seeds swirling around in it. I think of people grabbing these glasses with sweaty hands. I think of people gulping all of it down in one go, an attempt to sate their parched throats on a hot summer’s day as well as to placate rumbling tummies with the cool, sweet, rose-laden drink.
When I encountered the falooda at Swensens, at a recent event for food bloggers, it both matched and did not match the picture in my head.

If Day 1 of the Workshop On Millet Foods For Dieticians And Chefs was enlightening, Day 2 was even more so. Day 2 was when all participants couldn’t take their eyes off stage, when they watched goggle-eyed the magic being spun before them, riveted to their seats. Day 2 was as full of practical sessions as Day 1 was of technical ones, with a number of chefs coming up on stage to demonstrate all the delicacies that can be cooked using millets.
