Stay In Touch

A die-hard foodie and a self-proclaimed chocoholic, I love world cuisine. An Indian by origin, I love to cook and eat foods which incorporate tons of flavor: spicy, sour, salty and sweet. I enjoy traversing the culinary landscape near and far in a quest for “umami”.

I am thrilled to be living in these exciting times where culinary innovations take place constantly.  My ultimate joy lies in meeting the chefs behind the food I eat – I love getting a deeper insight into their culinary point of view.

My all-time, top 5 favorite dishes are:
-Mutton Biryani (Indian)
-Pho (Vietnamese)
-A hearty bowl of Ramen (Japanese)
-Paella (Spanish)
-Any assortment of meats and lentils on Injera bread (Ethiopian)

  1. It was a pleasure meeting you at the British cooking class last weekend. My daughter and I have signed up for the macron class at Sur la Table. I saw your note saying that you had gotten shut out of one. The list of cooking classes is on their website. Can’t wait to try making those scones! Jan

  2. I just wanted to say THANKS for this site. This is such a great resource. Now I don’t have to solely rely on questionable Yelp reviews. (And a quick question: Do you have any idea where a guy might be able to find black pudding in Fairfield County? I know pubs that serve it, but I want it in my fridge!)

    1. Thanks David. 🙂

      Black Pudding as in the sausage? I have not seen it in stores around here (but then I wasn’t looking for it) ….I am trying to get an answer for you from some friends in the area. Will let you know if I succeed.

  3. I’d love to know what you think about Basso Cafe Restaurant in Norwalk, CT. i hear many good comments and reviews about this restaurant. thanks
    Nice Blog you have by the way…!!

    1. Dear Kelly,

      Thanks for your feedback. 🙂

      Basso Cafe is really good. I had been there a few times before I started this blog. I remember good food, bold flavors and a remarkably wonderful ambiance despite its physical location.

      Thanks for reminding me to put it on my “to-do” list. 🙂

  4. Next time you’re in new haven you must try Roia, one of the few places left where you’re guaranteed a good meal. Service is spot on and the owners are wonderful people who want nothing more than to bring local, fresh food to the community. It’s my go-to and never gets old. It’s the former Hot Tomatoes space which they renovated (long overdue!), next to the Shubert Theatre on College Street. Night cap across the street at the Owl Shop cigar lounge.

  5. hey I am indian by birth and in Fairfield county and happened to see you had Biryani as your favorite dish- have you tried Paradise Biriyani in Norwalk- the goat Biriyani is legendary – they are right near patel brothers. Not a place to stay and eat but you must try if you havent (also the pepper fry goat)

  6. Hello!
