Recently, Mark Poynton, the chef patron of Alimentum in Cambridge UK was in Bengaluru as part of the “Taste of Britain” promotion that was held in association with Curry Life magazine. I asked the chef what it's like to run a Michelin-star restaurant, his thoughts on modernist cooking and his work to promote “ethical cuisine”.

Bangalore went into a tizzy recently when the three superstars of Masterchef Australia visited the city as part of the World on a Plate (WOAP) food festival. The event took place across two major side-by-side venues -- the JW Marriott and UB City. JW Marriott also played host to Matt Preston, Gary Mehigan and George Calombaris for the busy weekend which saw master classes, pop-ups and interactions galore. I had the pleasure of interacting with each of the three judges.

I recently had the opportunity to interview Dr Irena Murray, an architectural historian and an honorary member of the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) who was recently in India delivering a series of lectures on the works renowned architect Charles Correa (who passed away last year). If anyone should be an expert on the subject it's her. Dr Murray worked closely with Charles Correa, as well as with colleagues in India and the Correa Foundation. Together they developed a truly fantastic digital archive of his work.

While all eyes were focused on the recently concluded Oscars and Leo finally got to take one home, another set of awards of the same magnitude in a different industry took place a little while ago. The Travvy Awards are the 'Academy Awards' of the American travel industry and Austria was chosen as the best wine tourism destination in Europe. I can attest that this honour is well deserved.

August 2, 2015 spells 25 years since the Iraqi invasion of Kuwait. Wars were fought, a dictator brought to his knees and lives torn asunder ever since. As expatriates caught in the crossfire of two warring nations, my family and I were among the thousands of Indian refugees evacuated from Kuwait in what was the largest such operation internationally by our government in 1990. I was an 11-year-old back then and chronicled every moment from in a diary. Here is some of my story...

Himachali or Pahadi cuisine varies according to the district you are in. For example, Kullu Valley uses a lot of meat and lamb. If you head towards Mandi, closer to the Punjab region, you find an influence from there as well. Lahore valley has heavier and richer food with the use of Yak meat.

If you visit Gorur Dam in the monsoon months, you might just miss this church unless you go up close. But visit in the dry summer and you will see it in all its Gothic glory. Located some distance away from Bengaluru, in Shettihalli, the Holy Rosary Church is submerged by the Gorur Dam reservoir in the monsoon season and then stands tall for all to see when the water recedes in summer.

I honestly don't look for a biryani to nail authenticity, because that is a very subjective thing. If it tastes great, bring it on. These are some of the biryanis in Bangalore that have lingered on in my mind long past their fragrance on my fingers.

Bangalore has a penchant for welcoming every culinary experiment with open arms - from the molecular gastronomy on offer at Caperberry, to the overnight-cooked laham mandi at the basement restaurant of Ta'aam. Food is not only for thought here, but quite literally, the only thought. Here are some exciting new trends in cooking and eating that diners can look forward to in 2015.

As a restaurant blogger I have numerous brilliant food memories that I love to flip through in a mental slide show. The multi-course edible flowers meal, a deconstructed Italian parmigiana served as a cold orb of goodness, pork belly in ways that will only have you singing praise to porcine gods and more. While I can give you a laundry list of things to try in this city, I personally feel there are some experiences that are a must.
