Stop press



Call me old fashioned if you must but I belong to a generation to whom print is king. I doubt if I'll ever pick up an e book over a well dog eared book. And I did cartwheels when I saw my article come out in the Mumbai Mirror, and as S, who made it happen, points out, full page :)



This was a feature on Cappadoccia, Turkey, based on my blog posts in Faraway Diaries. I don't get to update this blog too frequenbtly. I don't travel as often as I eat. The Switzerland and Dubai trips coming up should give some fodder.



Here's the link to the actual article. I know it's largely on travel but there is a bit on food at the end. Keep this to yourself but the food part is from Istanbul but some inspired editing and a need to fill the page got it there.

In a way it is Finely Chopped which started it all as S contacted me after reading it. The result was piece on the food scene at Singapore.


Can't wait for the next one.

PS: Just to set the record straight 'I' didn't splurge. Museum was a gift from K. So there, I hope to get into her good books by blaming it on the media

Hi Kalyan - Nice article - I came by from you other blog and was pleasantly surprised to see what a foodie you are. Just yesterday my husband suggested that we should try out some Bengali recipes and here you are giving them away! It's a pleasure to read all your blogs. Take care.

Great stuff Kalyan, Congrats. Seems like these are your publishing days - first the research paper and now the newspaper. :) Any other publication too?

But rightly said, a dog eared book over an eBook. Anyday.

Hey Corinne...thanks so much. remember the first post you read was based at Hearsch's? I am an intuitive cook so my recipes might not be very traditional. You can try some of these for the 'real thing' http://bengalicuisine.net/2009/08/29/top-7-bengali-food-blogs/
