Ham, Cheese, Apple and Arugula Sandwich

Ham, Cheese and Apple Sandwich

I knew what I was going to do with the apples even before I hung up the call from the rep from Washington Apples. One of my favourite sandwiches is my ham, cheese and apple sandwich. It’s a simple sandwich that is based on three well-established combinations: ham […]

Misterio and Urban Uco were the two Malbec wines served

World Malbec Day in Mumbai

April 17th has special significance for Argentina. No, it’s not Maradona’s birthday, nor is it the Argentine National Day.

Sashimi

The Flavours Of Japan

Sushi and sashimi may have become synonymous with Japanese cuisine, but their range of culinary extravagance extends far beyond these bite-sized delicacies.

Bibimbap Heng Bok, Bandra

Dinners at Heng Bok

It was with some trepidation that I went for dinner to Heng Bok, Mumbai’s first Korean-specialty restaurant, last week.

We love buying roasted corn off street carts as much as Mexicans, who also not surprisingly, like the salty, tangy flavours we crave so the recipe didn’t need to be adapted much.  I’ve substituted queso fresco, the  mildly sour-salty, […]

Bibimbap-style Rice
