Here since 1956, Gaylord is a legacy. Situated at Churchgate, this restaurant severs North Indian and Continental dishes. It’s bakery section is known for retaining its age old flavours.

The decor of the restaurant will you a royal vintage vibe.
We tried-

Chili Cheese Toast-
Price- 320
Bite sized sandwiches of cheese with finely chopped chillies in between. It tasted good but for the price the quantity was very little.
Rating- 4/5

IMG-20181030-WA0117

Kulhar ki Tangdi
Price- 520
Chicken drumsticks marinated and cooked in Bhatti masala. The chicken was tender and flavourful, but upon taking a few bites, you’ll find it extremely dry. The presentation of the dish is lovely, each drumstick is served in an individual pot where masala and salad is added. Again for the price we think only 4 drumsticks are too less.
Rating- 3.5/5

For main course we opted for:

Vegetable Au-Gratin-
Price- 505
It was mixed…

Musgrave Marketplace Christmas Party


Belfast Food Man's Blog

Halloween has just finished and it’s straight into Christmas!!!! I attended the Belfast Musgrave Marketplace Christmas Party on the 1st November where Christmas has just begun!!

The warehouse has all one needs when it comes to food, groceries, confection, drinks and snacks and lots more.

There is a very good and well stocked Christmas shop and my two girls were already decorating the house!!!

We were well plied with canapés of the savoury and sweet kind and we especially liked the salted caramel hot chocolates (Santa please make a note!!).

I saw a couple of innovations worth mentioning. The first was a wide range of biodegradable cutlery, containers and straws which were pretty impressive. Also there was a wonderful spiced gammon which can boiled and/or ovened and which looked and tasted great.

I think I will make a trip back to do my Christmas shopping….without any distractions!!

Mushroom borscht


Cooking Without Limits

GAB_7136__res Mushrooms borscht

My husband loves to make a borscht (sour soup), any kind of it. Vegetable or meat, as long it is sour is the best. This summer he made a boletus borscht. It was wonderful. I went foraging mushrooms and he did the borscht. I made photos at the end and now I am sharing his recipe with all of you.

He made borscht the before our wedding too. Imagine spending the “guys” party with his cousin, me and my best friend.

We had a great night.

This mushrooms borsch could be made also with any king of mushrooms. He made it lots of times with different wild mushrooms. Hi took the recipe from the book of written after the author “Radu Anton Roman” traveled around the country and learnt traditional recipes from our villages.

Ingredients:

  • 1 root parsnip
  • 1 root celery
  • 2 onions
  • 500 ml meat broth
  • 1…

The Giant Corporations Behind Your Burgers And Milk Have A Terrifying Climate Secret

Together, five companies have a climate footprint bigger than Exxon, Shell or BP, but we don’t talk about it.

Lauri Patterson

Beef burgers, ham sandwiches, cheese slices, yogurt, bread.

A good amount of the food you might eat on a daily basis is likely to have come from just three U.S companies: Tyson, Cargill and Dairy Farmers of America. 

Minnesota-based Cargill is the world’s biggest food trader, selling everything from grains and beef to eggs and palm oil.

Meat giant Tyson processes 35 million chickens, 424,000 pigs and 130,000 cattle every week in the U.S. And Dairy Farmers of America accounts for 30 percent of all the milk produced in the country.

And in addition to providing your breakfast, lunch and dinner, they are some of…

Hitchki particularly at bkc has been quite the buzz on weekends. You shall see hoards of people buzzing around there for its music, drinks and vibes.

20181005215354_IMG_6932

So they have an entire menu themed based on movies and I was pretty impressed with the innovation of the names used.
Also secondly what I liked was the menu being so widespread. They had a huge amount of starters, burgers, soups, salads, pasta, Chinese dishes, chaat, Indian cuisine.
Let’s start with Chakna
We tried Ulta Punjab
Crisp Rumali + Masala Papad Mix . I liked this but would have liked more masala in butter to it.
They had this interesting section to the menu called “Back in time” which had dishes like
Irani & co
Hostel ka maggi
Andas apna apna
We tried Kuchi bhi
Hitchki take on vada Pav which had dabeli masala buttered Pav . I like the combination of the…

Recipe: Banana Pecan Crumb Muffins By //Love and Olive Oil #AceFoodDesk reports


#AceFoodNews – Oct.13: Tender, fluffy banana muffins studded with chopped pecans and topped with a crunchy crumbly streusel (since we’re all in agreement that the tops are the best part anyway, why not make them even better with a crumb topping!)……………If you’re looking for a new way to use up those over-ripe bananas taunting you on the counter, look no further than these banana pecan muffins! They’re tender and sweet and satisfyingly crunchy, like a cross between banana bread and coffee cake. In other words, the perfect way to start your day #AceFoodDesk reports Banana Nut Muffins with Crumb Streusel Topping Recipe

Ripe bananas are a constant battle around here, so I’m always throwing together a batch of banana bread so as not to let them go to waste: But rather than torture you with yet another banana bread recipe (I’ve got quite a few of them, actually, including my all time favorite double chocolate banana bread) I decided to do a banana muffin instead.

What a concept!

But I wasn’t satisfied with a muffin-ified version of my banana bread. No, my muffins would be stellar, studded with chopped pecans (you should be proud of me for using nuts here rather than my default chocolate chips… because breakfast.) and finished with a crunchy streusel topping.

Because, let’s be honest… a muffin without a crumb topping isn’t even worth making.

Get the Recipe: Banana Pecan Crumb Muffins

I originally tweaked my buttermilk crumb cupcake recipe to incorporate the ripe bananas, and while it was a good starting point, I found the batter a bit too delicate to support the weight of the crumb (leading to delicious, but embarrassingly sunken muffins). A bit more flour and a little less butter seemed to solve that problem, easily enough, and this recipe is the result!

Why are those cupcakes and these are muffins?

Let’s see. Well, the fruit here, for one thing, makes them most definitely muffins. Also see: lack of chocolate chips (not that I have anything against chocolate chips for breakfast, but it makes the definition in this case a lot easier). No frosting, no dusting of powdered sugar, no mound of fluffy buttercream.

Bubble Tea Craze


Musings

One downside of living in a tropical country is its hot and humid climate which makes life really uncomfortable. To cool down we turn to cold refreshments.

One craze that stayed until now is the bubble tea. No one knows who really invented it but Taiwan reinvented it during the 1980’s. Bubble tea shops sprouted like mushrooms here since we love a cool refreshing drink.

There are many theories as to why it is called bubble tea. One theory is bubbles form when the drink is shaken up. Another one is because of the tapioca pearls that sits at the bottom. Those black pearls are addictive because there’s something in their chewiness.

But bubble tea doesn’t always have bubbles and tea in it. Bubbles usually formed when it has milk in it. The variety that has no lace of tea in it is the fruit flavoured juice with the jelly…

Report: Huge Reduction in Meat-Eating ‘Essential’ To Avoid Climate Breakdown #AceFoodDesk reports


#AceFoodNews – Oct.11: Huge reductions in meat-eating are essential to avoid dangerous climate change, according to the most comprehensive analysis yet of the food system’s impact on the environment. From a report: In western countries, beef consumption needs to fall by 90% and be replaced by five times more beans and pulses #AceFoodDesk reports

The research [PDF] also finds that enormous changes to farming are needed to avoid destroying the planet’s ability to feed the 10 billion people expected to be on the planet in a few decades. Food production already causes great damage to the environment, via greenhouse gases from livestock, deforestation and water shortages from farming, and vast ocean dead zones from agricultural pollution.

But without action, its impact will get far worse as the world population rises by 2.3 billion people by 2050 and global income triples, enabling more people to eat meat-rich western diets
