Too much of a good thing?

Too much of a good thing?

That maybe true, but clearly that statement doesn't apply to truffles. Chef Mauro goes to Italy for a holiday, but he doesn't come back alone. He bring truffles and truffle pastes along. And when he does, he serves his guests generously. Like seriously generously. Like a food festival almost dedicated to truffles. Yes, in Chennai. Not in Milan, his hometown, which BTW, I will reveal much more later. A chef's table with Mauro when he comes back with his goodies is something that I could kill for. The Drama Chef is back at Focaccia, Hyatt Regency with a new menu and yes, he sings and dances, but so do the truffles. Almost every dish on the menu has truffles on it. Starting off with truffles, the chicken salad wouldn't do any justice the name in India. Beautifully cooked chicken that was so soft and juicy, along with the shaved parmesan and truffle edible soil that had a hint of sweetness, kicked off dinner like it belonged. Ironically the dish w

A trip down memory lane

A trip down memory lane

Have you been to Kimberly? No, I said. What's that? I'll show you now, let's have our meeting there, he said and whisked me away to Harrington Road. We had half our meeting in the car and the other half never happened. Nestled in a quiet lane off Harrington Road, Kimberly is a beautifully restored heritage property in which you can work. A nice co-working space on the first floor with the charm of a heritage property is rather rare to find. Maybe even non existent in Chennai as of now. But I was there of course for the food. The food is not playing second fiddle to the co-working space though and has clearly been well thought out. With multiple seating arrangements from a low seating hall to a full 8 seater home dining table, from an outdoor garden seating to an ancient patio seating, Kimberly is multifaceted. The cuisine maybe hard to connect with for the millennials - South Indian with Continental, but for those who have lived through the 80s and 90s,

A millet journey with the Agriculture Minister

A millet journey with the Agriculture Minister

 Everytime people ask me about Quinoa, I'm tempted to yell. I know that it is not going to have any positive effect, though. Quinoa has gained fame around the world as a superfood. I have nothing against quinoa. But Indian millets, a lot of them are nutritionally superior but poorly marketed. Poorly grown. Poorly distributed. Poorly cooked. The Karnataka Govt has taken an initiative to start. The Agriculture minister, Mr. Krishna Byre Gowda with his eloquence wowed the audience at dinner in the Taj Ballroom, but long before that, at lunch in the modest but brilliant Prem's Grahma Bhojanam, a tete with him revealed the issues at grass root levels. Suddenly I realised that blaming everyone for wanting imported millets like quinoa is not going to help. The fields growing millets are less than 10%, he says. Motivating farmers to grow millets is even more difficult. Demand is low, so prices (not direct millet price, but compared to the amount of money the

Uninvited dinner at Pondy turns awesome!

Uninvited dinner at Pondy turns awesome!

Going to Pondy on a long weekend without a room booking or a place to stay is, well, ambitious. But when you decide at 3 pm to take a drive and leave Chennai at 330 PM, there is no time to make bookings. That is another story, though. But the next day, driving to Puthur Jayaram mess and onward to Tranquebar and then arriving at 10 PM in Pondy, again without a room is a bigger mess. But then, we were hungry. What's the worse that could happen? We'll have to sleep on the beach, right? So be it. A bigger problem had to be tackled. Hunger. After going up and down over half a dozen restaurants only to be told that there are no tables, le Chateu came as a saving grace as one family had finished dinner by 10 and the owner was willing to let us have that table. Our legs thanked us more than the tummies. Our 'vegetarian for the month' friend got himself a platter. Unluckily for him, it tasted good, so the two of us also dug our fingers. He ordered a mushroom chee

The brand new menu @parkhyattchenn Flying Elephant has some fabulous creations.

Around the world on an Elephant!

Around the world on an Elephant!

How does a hotel celebrate? Especially something as big as the return of alcohol. Or even their anniversary. Or when both come together. There are simply many ways to celebrate, but the best of the hotels get their chefs to recreate something. A new menu maybe? That is how Park Hyatt, the home to one of the best restaurants in the city, is doing. A brand new menu at The Flying Elephant. It's no new menu with a tweak here and there. 75% of it is new. Well, not just new, but a little push of the boundaries. A live salad. No, not a live counter, but the chef dishing it out and mixing it up on your table. The end result of all the theatre was a beautiful salad with loads of crunch. Well, I'm biased to anything that has a little crunch to it, but I wouldn't be exaggerating if I said that the salad was fabulous. What else can you expect when you have Chef Teku at the helm and we're dealing with something called the Singapore Slaw Salad! Grilling wate

On world vegetarian day, this unique dish @_kimberlyhouse is the first vegetarian dish that came to my mind. Inspired by the street side if Singapore, Cal's Green Tea rice with a nice balance of rice and veggies with peanuts and a unqiue green tea gravy is a nice new addition to the vegetarian dishes of Chennai #chennaifoody #foodtalkindia #fbai #healthyfood #healthy #food #rice #greentea #peanut #vegetarian #foodphotography #foodblogger #foodblog ##brownrice #shotononeplus #foodstagram #instagram #foodwriter #foodgasm #foodporn #foodie #chennai via Instagram

Who taught the Thais to make #biriyani? The Malaysians apparently. Called the Khao Mok, this has an uncanny resemblance to our biriyani with a little lemongrass flavour. Available at Benjarong as part of the South Thai Food festival till 8th October. #eat #asian #thailand #foodtalkindia #foodpassion #foodporn #foodie #foodwriter #foodstagram #fbai #shotononeplus #rice #travel #culture #followme #instagram #foodphotography via Instagram
