Cakeology IV

This awesome post takes us back in the time when fantasy-lands were the only places to be in and cakes and chocolates our only wishes.

Back with a Bang!

Back with a Bang in essence is a summary of the interesting events that have been happening around us during a last couple of months.

Cakeology III

This is my first blog and I think nothing can be better than to starting something new on a sweet note. So folks, “my bake-a-cake journey” is about to begin and entertain you all. It all started two years ago when I moved along with my husband to Germany. Being in…

“… a diamond among the pearls”- Anynymous.

“If European cities were a necklace, Prague would be a diamond among the pearls” – Anynymous. My dear readers, at times, it is the best to start a post with a quotation. It was the summers of 2013, and we found ourselves hitting the autobahn to Prague. Here is Prague through the lens of our iPhone camera….

Romancing the Skies of Switzerland- II

I         :”Hey! We found a beautiful place to get lost.” Friend :”Really! when and where is that place?” I         :”It was the spring of 2014, when we zeroed-in on Jungfraujoch and Interlaken in Switzerland. Never have had we thought that the place would be so beautiful and majestic…

COA, Mannheim

Once upon a time, there was a couple, roaming on the streets of Mannheim to satiate their hunger for some delicious Asian-cuisine. Bang… and they found themselves standing in front of COA- Cuisine of Asia in Mannheim. The restaurant is easy to locate on Friedrichsring (very close to the Rosengarten parking house).  With a good seating…

City Festival in Mannheim (Mannheim Stadtfest)

Mannheimer Stadtfest is one of the events that we always look forward to since out movement to Germany. Its rocking atmosphere, the colourful set-ups, programs for children, artistic and handicraft displays in beautiful canopies, delicious dishes and in numerous varieties of beers and other beverages attract many like us to this city. Here are a…

K3G

K3G: Khumb Kofta Kurry Gourmet OR Fried Mushroom Balls in spicy Tomato Sauce. Okay…okay..I agree to have twisted the spelling of curry just to give this dish a fancy Bollywood style name. Khumb or mushroom dishes are one of the vegetables (as I would prefer to call them) that we relish. There are countless things that we…

The difference…”the Crowne Plaza difference”

“No. I really don’t want to wake up. This place is extremely cozy.” was my response when my husband was trying to wake me up so that we can proceed for the lavish breakfast-buffet (with lots of choice for morning vegetarians like me) at the Crowne Plaza Amsterdam South. The two of us are big admirers of this hotel. This hotel…

The much awaited…

“The oh-so-yummy Glühwein, x-massy cakes, delicious chocolate crepes, lavish dinners” flashed when a bottle of Glühwein came to my sight while cleaning our wine cellar this weekend and instantly I found myself in the Winter Dreamland. The sweet fragrance of cinnamon-flavoured Glühwein rules the atmosphere then. The otherwise gloomy grey surroundings suddenly metamorphises into a colourful bright…

Hallmark of Luxury

The hallmark of luxury, a symbol of romanticism, a heaven on earth, an inspiration to many that is what Neuschwanstein Castle is. A perfect fairy-tale castle which has been an inspiration to one of our childhood favourite Disneyland’s Sleeping Beauty. Hardly, in my childhood, would I have imagined that there exists an original piece of marvellous art, architecture…

Elegance redefined

Nine yards of elegance or as I would call it ‘elegance redefined’. And that is a SARI. A sari is an elegant piece of female attire in South Asia. It varies in length from 5 to 9 yards, varies in types of cloths, colours, knits, patterns and also the styles of drapes. People always ask…
