  • The Valentines Day dinner: Steak, wine and a little bit of love.

    Valentine’s Day is always a fine dining restaurant for us. There’s a certain appeal about restaurant food that you can’t argue. The plating, the ambience, the cut of meat, the rich sauces; it’s the whole package. Replicating this restaurant quality food at home is something I obsess. I go great leng

  • Ina Garten’s Orange Pound Cake

  • Fresh Corn Soup.

    It was corn season time in Bangalore and I so badly wanted to get this right. My previous attempts with corn weren’t that great, especially the sweet corn chicken soup. Almost all the corn based recipes used canned, pre cooked corns and that’s so much a deterrent for me. I wanted to use the fresh corn you get roadside. And then I came across David Lebovitz’s adaptation to this soup. This is pretty easy to make and once done stays for 4-5 days building up the flavor. My adaption was sweeter than I anticipated but I used a bit of soy sauce with every serving to get around it. If corn’s cheap in you area, this serves well! Some day I’ll add bacon to this 🙂
