Our main feature in the last issue of the year is a lovely article on ‘Christmas Feasts Around the Globe’, enlightening us on the delicious specialties in various countries. We add a touch of romance to this edition with ‘Darjeeling & Assam – Intimate Happenings’, written by award winning author, Indraneel Majumdar. Our Culinary Maestro this time is Chef Amey Marathe whose eventful career has now brought him to being the Corporate Chef of the famous Paradise outlets. Be sure to read ‘The Comfort in Calories’ which articulately explores the connection we have to comfort food. Sometimes your soul just craves that steaming bowl of khichdi, right?
