CFG's Anniversary Celebrations

CFG's Anniversary Celebrations

And its back! Bigger. Better. Cheaper. How is that possible?!? However it was made possible, I am not complaining. 10 years of CFG has evolved from tight Orkut group into one that is growing strength to strength. This year's anniversary celebrations, God willing, will truly reflect the way CFG has evolved. For the first time, we are having a specially curated menu from the friends at Westin, Chennai and when I saw that, my mouth started watering. From........wait, I am not telling you the menu!!!! Bring your mouth and find out! And to start to give back to the community, CFG is organising a networking and knowledge sharing pre-event for bloggers! I am mighty excited to be there and I hope and believe that in the years to come, CFG will have bigger networking events. For a lazy @#$ like me, who always looks for someone to carry me and carry me back, UBER, has joined hands with CFG for a free (if less than Rs. 300 bill) pick up and drop off to and from Westin.

Masters of Food and Wine, Park Hyatt

Masters of Food and Wine, Park Hyatt

"What are you looking for?" she asked as I held the small plate in one hand, the camera in the other and lost face on the head! "Fork and Knife. Only the spoon is here," I said, pointing out to the table. "You don't need the fork and knife. The spoon will do," she said with a smirk! That was Chef Megha behind her live counter that doled out Beef Bourguignon. I looked at her, almost in disbelief, but knowing Megha, I knew she had a point. As it turned out, I didn't even need a spoon. I only had to place the spoon and it cut through the beef like it was butter! That and the baked Brie made up Chef Megha's counter, one that was stunning. Unfortunately, most people including myself had filled our tummies with wonderful food, that retrospectively, we should have had this main course first! Since we have the benefit of 'retrospection' now, I thought that the only reversal was to write about this dish first!!!!

Kuttanadan Food Fest, Ente Keralam

Kuttanadan Food Fest, Ente Keralam

Ente Keralam. The awesome kerala food place that has pretty bad food festivals! The ones during Onam are pretty ordinary (maybe it is authentic, but I didn't like it) and the previous Kuttanadan wasn't very impressive either. When invited, I mentioned that I am yet to write about my recent (very good) experience at Ente Keralam and there is a higher chance that I wasn't going to write anything good about the current food festival, and didn't deter them. I told my fellow foodie,who tagged along, not to expect much either. And when I was almost sure that I was going to write about their appams and stuff from their regular menu, the food festival surprised me. To begin with, their menu apparently was revised from their previous festival after taking all the feedback. We started with the fantastic Kappa Cutlet.  This is one thing I liked from their previous menu and glad it was retained. And then two outstanding starters, a masala fried fish served in a c

Rooftop Alfresco, Taj Club House

Rooftop Alfresco, Taj Club House

I was intrigued. I was a little sad too. When Taj invited me to their new dining experience, the Rooftop Alfresco at the Taj Clubhouse, I presumed that Kefi, one of the best roof top restaurants in Chennai, was coming to a close and was being replaced! Fellow foodies shared the anguish! But thankfully, that wasn't the case. The outdoor seating area of Kefi, now has more options to eat from and now as a new avatar, the Rooftop Alfresco! Being open from 530 in the evening, it can turn out to be a great spot for catching up after work and with very few 5 star offerings like this in Chennai, Taj is aiming to fill that void!!! Open to public from the 6th of Feb, we had a nice sneak peak! Dinner started with a wine for the 'drinkers' and mocktails for the good boys! The chef made fun of us because that night, all ladies had the wine and the gentlemen were the teetotallers! The mezze platter that came in was signature Kefi. Accompanied by some wonderful pita br

Burgers Festival at Flying Elephant, Park Hyatt

Burgers Festival at Flying Elephant, Park Hyatt

Burger King of Chennai (self proclaimed, but I think I have a right to the title) and I didn't know about the Burger festival at Park Hyatt! Sheesh. A chance visit and a fellow foodie and me found out that it was the last day of the fest! Crap! What's worse, we were eyeing the awesome sounding Angus Beef burger and being the last day, it was sold out! What else could go wrong!?! Thankfully, nothing after that! There were seven burgers on the menu for the festival. We decided we wanted to taste all the non-veg burgers so we ordered one each and shared. For starters, we had a chicken burger! Now, I am used to having a boneless piece of chicken as the patty in most decent places, and a mashed potato with traces of chicken in average places, but this burger was different. Unless you paid attention, you couldn't have made out if it was chicken or beef as the meat was ground and cooked to perfection! The toppings on the burger was a surprise with a nice Asian twist to
