Khonoma, you beaut. Without doubt the most picturesque village I have visited. #NagaFoodTrail #Nagaland #Khonoma #Angami

Freshly harvested mithun blood. Mithun is a semi-domesticated bovine (Indian bison(gaur)) that is considered to be a very special meat in these parts. We were lucky to snag a sweet kilo of tender red meat for tonight's supper. But this photo is of me missing my homies @ananditakamani, @chinsi, @nehasumitran and @vahishta as they're prepping for a private @dandafoodproject collaboration goat dinner that features a special blood pasta course. All the best guys! #Nagaland #NagaFoodTrail #Twitter #Blood #BloodPasta #Kohima #Mithun #Gaur #Bovine #angami #FoodTalkIndia #FoodTalkMumbai

My favorite seeds | Jobs Tears. First discovered these in Khonoma, Nagaland (2014). Seeing it again in this trip while we were visiting a seed bank in Chizami, was quite a joy. People in Chizami live to grow food to feed themselves, and that's about it. Over the last 20-30 years a small cash economy has entered their lives (so, yeah, they have cellphones and new clothes), but for the most part, it is quite humbling to experience this nearly extinct form of harmonious, continuous living. #Chizami #Chakhesang #Nagaland #PhekDistrict #Organic #Farming #Jobstears #millets #millet #survival

:-) Regram from @shalphil Nagaland is a dry state. But turn around a corner and you'll find a dodgy 'bar'. A room in a shopping complex with the shutters half down, bright polyester curtains, low wooden tables, a couple of plastic chairs and a bunch of locals who were super amused with us tourists!
The rice beer was cold, fresh, light & downright delicious! We started off sharing a single glass, but quickly changed our minds and slammed a glass each! @bigaddie was feeling especially relaxed after this glassful 😂 Definitely going back for more! 😬

A fun chit-chat with @manuchandra in today's Mid-Day! In case you miss it, link in profile. Thanks for the fun writeup @herroyaltininess! #Twitter #FoodTalkIndia #FoodTalkMumbai

Eggplants the shape of chilies. Well they belong to the same family. #NagaFoodTrail #Nagaland #Dimapur #MarketScenes #nightshades

Sunday Nights | Salli topped with melted Tomme De Semmancheri Aux Truffe from @thefarmchennai, saucisson de Lyon made by @sailor_rick. Raclette reinvented. #Twitter

#ThrowBack: Four years and 10 kilos ago. Miss those days of having a fridge full of homemade cheeses, the latest beers that'd come from the southern neighbors (US) and so many other fun projects with food (goat belly bacon 😍). Shortly after this, I started traveling and have come a long way with food, mostly by eating everything in sight, but have fallen a long way back in fitness. Gosh, wake up call! #Twitter #Yoga #FatYogi #Fitness #YEG

Tomme De Semmancheri Aux Truffes | Raw milk, truffle-infused. As we cut into this and tasted it, I was reeling at the thought that this is possibly the best cheese ever made by us at @thefarmchennai. But this is a one off. And cheese making isn't about one hit wonders. This was possible because we've developed a pretty good cheese production protocol that results in consistent, reproducible, high quality cheeses. The flagship Tomme De Semmancheri has gone through years of tiny manipulations to get it to a pretty nice quality. #Twitter #TommeDeSemmancheri #Tomme #Semmancheri #lifeontheudderside #CheeseMaking

The joy of every cheese maker: Gooey paste bulging out of the rind of a cheese. This one has peppercorns in it. Another cheese, somewhat a stracchino-style, going well too. What a joy. So happy with the cheeses at @thefarmchennai. Narrowing down some recipes this trip. We've come a long way since we started. But will always have some small things to fix. #Twitter #CheeseMaking #CheeseMaker #Chennai #indianCheese #India #Madras #ChennaiFood #gooeyCheese

Quite honored to be a part of this awesome initiative. w/ @ankietgulabani and @gitikaspakghor RG—> @thebombaycanteen Today's #CanteenClass brought together 3 amazing people @gitikaspakghor @bigaddie & @ankietgulabani who're doing unconventional things in the world of food and hospitality. The idea was to convey to the students that you can make a great career out of doing things you're passionate about which aren't necessarily directly related to restaurants or hotels.
If you're a student or just someone really passionate about the world of hospitality and are interested in attending future Canteen Classes, please email your CV to Varun.jalan@hungerinc.in with the subject 'Canteen Class' and we'll keep you posted!

Around the Gulf of Khambhat in Gujarat, we drove by arid salt pans on the coast and arrived with parched throats to Alang. Famously known to be the largest ship breaking yard in the world, little did I expect to find such high quality kitchen equipment from reputed international brands. Well I guess it makes sense. Decommissioned ships still carry a ton of useful appliances that are needed to cook food for several hundred people. I've seen dozens of rational ovens, bakery hearth ovens, walk-in coolers, meat grinders, meat saws, soup kettles... the list goes on. This is serious stuff. If you're planning to open a restaurant in India, go to Alang. If you're looking for company, I'll come along! It's special. #Twitter #Recycled #Repurposed #Reused #KitchenEquipment #India #Gujarat #Alang #Bhavnagar #khambhat #gulfofkhambhat
