Spent the weekend with family out of Mumbai to attend the 25th wedding anniversary of my cousin. The whole family gathered for the occasion and it was great fun to be with all of them together. It is good to take a small break from work like this!
Friday saw the Christmas Cake competition in the office. The teams put up two great presentations and we had my good friend and talented chef, Anil Rohira, Corporate Pastry Chef Felchlin, as judge. After giving his valuable tips to the team, he declared a tie! Giving you the pictures here.
Mumbai had the first of its kind ‘Maha Feast’ at the Gateway of India this weekend. A very good beginning, I do hope it becomes an annual event and Mumbai will have a show case of food to demonstrate to rest of India and the world. I would like to see more of street food and live cooking next year round though.
The telecast of my recipe on Master Chef India 2 on Saturday has brought in lots of enquiries for the recipe! Well, they are on http://www.sanjeevkapoor.com on display for you to make and enjoy!
2011 has seen the launch of FOODFOOD, my much awaited food channel. This year now enters Week 52, and it is time to send off my greetings to all my associates and friends. This year we have researched the ancient dietitics and come up with some nice food sayings in Sanskrit. This is a fulfilling experience as something beautiful, something traditional reaches out to others and also indicates to us that we are moving ahead in the right direction in exploring avenues of food and in teaching all aspects of food.
Travel plans for January 2012. Around second week, planning to go to Bahrain for the launch of The Yellow Chilli. At present, the soft launch of The Yellow Chilli in Kathmandu has been done and what a response! There was a huge crowd willing to enter the place and the formal launch is yet to happen!
As the party mood to usher in the New Year will be setting in, I will share some easy foods that can be made for your family and friends.
Till I write again
