I wanted to update the blog of pictures from Chocolate festival. I had visited this festival held in Stockholm on October 6th, 2016. It was a wonderful event. I guess like many of these chocolate festivals, it was a held in a huge hall of Stockholmsmässan. At the very entrance of this hall was a…

Rödbeta smoothie

Rödbeta is ‘beetroot’ in Swedish. I have three (Beetroot smoothie, Beetroot shoot smoothie, and Grand smoothie) smoothie recipes on the blog which already have beetroot or parts of it in them. Beetroot was not my favorite since childhood. Frankly, no one I know is fond of beetroot recipes. But, I have trained myself to eat these…

Food experience in Paris

After writing so much about the Europe trip, I figured it was obligatory that I mention about my food experiences on this *food blog*!! I have a lot to say, and at the same time, I am not sure if it will actually be interesting for people who read this food blog to get recipes or…

On our way to Lauterbrunnen, Switzerland – Part 1

​“Run.. Run”.. That’s what was on my mind as I was pacing towards the Lucerne train station. After a great breakfast at Monopol Hotel, (sister hotel of SwissAlpina) which is right in the front of the Lucerne station, it was difficult to not feel excited about the rest of my day. I have to admit when…

Red Bulgur

As a child, I was reluctant to eat beetroots and radishes. Now, I have cultivated a habit of trying new recipes and incorporate everything I wouldn’t eat before. One such effort was eating them in Bulgur recipe. These days I can eat any vegetable if it is in combination with Bulgur. It becomes a perfect…
