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;

In what I can only describe as a completely unprecedented move, I am completely flummoxed (no, the title wasn’t clickbait). Like many young, broke adults in the world today I love beer. A little for the taste, but mostly for

Patanjali is more often than not in the news on a daily basis. The last thing I wrote about was the Army canteen banning their Amla juice but they’ve been in the news most recently over their proposed chain of fast

You can run you can hide but you can’t escape the news of the liquor ban that’s swept the country thanks to a Supreme Court ruling. This court order, which came into effect on April 1st, amounts to a complete

If you’re like me, AKA, a social media addict and can barely keep your hands off your phone for a minute then you’ll no doubt have seen your social media inundated with the unicorn craze. Every other post and every

It’s the tale as old as time: all you can eat versus feeling that your taste buds have been fully stimulated. I for one, think that nothing beats the satisfaction of digging into a dish that you’ve been craving forever

It’s pretty common knowledge that pizza goes on my list of my favorite things (along with raindrops on roses). I recently found out that dessert pizzas are a thing. I came across this depressing information while reading about another one

If you’ve been reading the news, then you know that the world has suddenly become even more healthy than it used to be six months ago. Everybody is looking to eat healthy, getting rid of the saturated fat and other

The only way you don’t know who or what the Salt Bae is if you’ve been hiding under a rock the last month. He’s the chef that salts his meat in the strangest of ways and apparently, the world loves

Last year, we talked about how fast-food brands come to India and change their menus to suit the local tastes and flavours. But in the last week, McDonald’s took that quite literally. And people everywhere are extremely confused by this

In a huge move from the Centre, it was said that the service charge that is mentioned on your bill is not a mandatory payment. If you were unhappy with your service or the experience when dining, you can waive
