We all lost our collective shit when chocolate pizza debuted in India (I for one, was not a fan). Some things just aren’t meant to be right? Wrong! Tella Balls Dessert Bar, a Nutella-themed cafe has come up with Nutella Pasta,

If you’re one of those people who doesn’t think that pineapple goes on pizza then you should avert your eyes. The internet is no stranger to food that is dark and full of terrors (read: baozza, avolatte) but the Swineapple

It’s 2017 and the world is as ‘woke’ as it’s ever been. Or is it? A couple of months ago Antony Bourdain announced the latest “food trend”. You can imagine my shock when I discovered that it was Filipino food.

In our minds, McDonald’s will always hold a special place in our hearts (if only because we waited for it to come to India for so long). As eateries face competition they have to change or risk becoming irrelevant (for

The first time I chanced upon the British show Come Dine With Me I was hooked (the narration is literally everything). Four strangers, all from vastly different walks of life, take turns hosting a meal to compete for 1,000 pounds.

It’s the age of the internet. Just a click of a button will let you know ‘why you aren’t losing weight’ (spoiler alert: it’s your diet) or what that headache that just won’t go away means. You’re probably not dying,

The Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC, aka the reason Lipstick Under My Burkha only released last week) has done it again! This time, with CBFC chief Pahlaj Nihalani (aka, the reason for so many great memes in July) declaring

It seems as though it is now confirmed, we are a world of alcoholics! Just kidding, but alcohol does play a major role in deciding where to eat. At least one in five patrons consider alcohol as extremely important while

Food should be taken seriously and we’ll all for it but this surely got out attention. In this jaw dropping video below the sushi is compared by scientific methods to determine whether a novice or a master has made it.

Let’s be honest, in the last year or so food has been taken to the next level. From colourful unicorn food to ‘innovative’ dishes such as the avolatte and the use of liquid nitrogen and such to create ‘unique’ dishes.

Whenever there’s an expectant mother in the family all the old wives’ tales come out in full force: eat lots of ghee (why?), don’t lie on your back (how else does one lie at 9 months pregnant?), drink barley water

It’s not news that the Amazon-Whole Foods deal has got the grocery world in jitters. However, the latest victim of the acquisition was none other than Blue Apron. The initial price of their IPO was $15 to $17 but they

Recently, I heard that McDonald’s had decided to start trialling cutlery in some of their outlets and I was shook. Apparently, in an effort to keep up with the ‘gourmet burger joints’ in France (of course) they have resorted to

Recently, in an interview with The Hindu, Tamil Nadu filmmaker Parthiban took a bit of a trip down memory lane. During the course of the piece, during which he relived his childhood days Parthiban talked about his love for upma; commenting

If you’ve read any of my opinion pieces, you’ll know that I’m not a big fan of fads (or beef eater haters). However, this last eating fad has knocked my damn socks off. We all know that are vegetarians, and

So you may have seen pictures of (gasp!) all white Skittles circulating around the internet and may have been wondering what all the fuss was about. In case you were unaware, June is Pride month (you know, for the LGBT

The beef debate in India is complex and continuous, going far beyond the sphere of food into religion, class, and (groan) even politics. On Wednesday Sadhvi Saraswati, who was speaking at the All India Hindu Convention, said, and I quote;

The other day, while casually scrolling through my newsfeed I was assaulted by something that shook me to my core. The offending article – tofu bacon in a vegan BLT (what even is a vegan BLT?). I was flabbergasted. Surely

In the last couple of years, the debate for being vegetarian has really amplified. It has become a popular topic of discourse either over a couple of drinks (or every time I meet a vegan friend). I mean vegetarian strictly in

You have to have been living under a rock if you haven’t heard about the avocado craze sweeping our planet. From avocado chocolate to people getting avocado hand (yes, that is a real thing), avocados are in the limelight. Recently,
