Until very recently, Rainbow Chard was something I only ever read about on international food blogs. It wasn’t readily available in India – it still isn’t, in the mainstream market. Now, thanks to Mapletree Farms from Hosur, I can do more than ogle at these colourful greens! I can actually cook with them, without having to shell out half of our household income on them!
I was thrilled to see the gorgeous variety of organically grown produce that Mapletree Farms had on offer, recently, at Ragi Kana, a very non-commercial weekly market that I have come to love. I just had to pick up some of the farm’s very fresh, very good-quality, very reasonably priced produce – Rainbow Chard included – and it has been an absolute delight working with them in my kitchen.
I used the Rainbow Chard leaves in a very Tamilian stir-fry, a Keerai Poriyal. This is an easy preparation, one that takes bare minutes to put together, and is quite a delicious way to get all the nutrition from those greens in.

I have had the pleasure of dining at InAzia, the Pan-Asian restaurant at the Sheraton Grand Bengaluru Whitefield Hotel & Convention Center, a couple of times. Last week, I was invited to partake of another feast there, to check out their ongoing Dragon Food Festival, along with some other food bloggers.

I was super thrilled, recently, to receive an invite from The Academy Of Pastry Arts, Bangalore, to be part of a dessert demonstration. It did turn out to be quite a scintillating experience. Yours truly, alongside a bunch of other food bloggers from across the city, watched agog, as Chef Kimberly Rozario of the Academy gave us a live demonstration of a magnificent Berry Vanilla Gateaux.

Last weekend, I had the opportunity to sample some Sindhi food at Sindh Kitchen, Malleshwaram, at a bloggers’ table. It turned out to be an enlightening experience, my first proper introduction to Sindhi cuisine. We had a lovely time admiring the simple decor of Sindh Kitchen and, of course, gorging on some delicious food!

A lot of foodie hearts broke when Made In Punjab in UB City gave way to BBQ’D. Many missed the gorgeous, authentic North Indian food of Made In Punjab, with its unique twists. Well, if you are one of those broken-hearted ones, there is good news for you!
Some of the old favourites from Made In Punjab have been brought back to the BBQ’D menu, on popular demand! Along with a few of the city’s foodies, I thoroughly enjoyed sampling this ‘Made In Punjab Revival Menu’ at BBQ’D, recently.
