Back in New York after attending a friend’s daughters’s wedding in Montreal. It was a bit like Mumbai: partly cloudy and light rains. We had a really enjoyable time. Earlier in the week I had met up with Michael Psaltis. Michael has played an instrumental role in the making of my international recipe book How to Cook Indian, which is great hit in US, UK and Canada. It was lovely to see him again.
Last night took friends out for dinner. It was at the Red Farm restaurant at Hudson Street and it is well known for the using farm fresh ingredients in innovative Chinese preparations. Though the décor is rustic, the chefs gave baskets of dimsums that carry a clean fresh approach.
As planned, did have a get together for my college mates. It was great to see Saket Bimal again! He was in Mumbai early this month and we had a nice chat in my office. Meeting in NY again with Bhupesh Yadav, who came down to NY especially to see us. A bonus! We had a nice Thai lunch followed by a walk around Times Square.
It is going to be a busy time with meetings and other work till we prepare to leave for Singapore on Saturday. Plan to spend at least a day there and then flying back home on the 26th.
Till I write again,
