Not everyday you get a chance to meet the judges of Masterchef Australia up close!! A dream comes true moment for the both of us when we got this opportunity brought about by Brittania Chunkies. They shared their stories, they cheered with the frenzy…
An evening worth remembering where we were a part of the rendezvous with Masterchef Australia judges - Gary, George and Matt in Bangalore

Hazratbal in Srinagar Kashmir is a popular tourist spot. Considered as one of the holiest shrine of Kashmir - this is how we saw it .

When we saw Hazratbal just when the sun was about to set and the little girl was lost in her little game with the pigeons. Did I want to be a child again?

Pikturenama presents first ever Assamese tribal food pop up in Kolkata by Gitika Saikia

Please check the link for the details of the event - https://www.facebook.com/events/455426377994504/


Acclaimed North East Food Curator GitikaSaikia will cook up flavors from Assam at an exclusive pop-up event on 31st January. Simple yet irresistible dishes will be served up for lunch ( starts at 1.00 pm) at Club De ville, the Club House Udita Bengal Ambuja, Eastern Metropolitan Bypass , ( 1050/1 Survey Park, Santoshpur, Kolkata - 75).
An Assamese food evangelist and health eating enthusiast, Gitika Saikia hails from the Sonowal Kachari community.

These include Lai XaakGahori or Pork with Broad Mustard Leaves, thick sesame fish curry (Til Maas), Rongalau Murgi, tender chicken pieces with pumpkin.
Also in attendance will be the legendary BhutJolokia, in chutneys as well as with pork and bamboo shoots. This fiery chili lends a distinct flavor to several Assamese dishes and is widely known for its heat and flavor.
A first of a kind event in Kolkata, this has come about through the graces of Anindya Sundar Basu of Pikturenama (www.pikturenama.com), a blog which is his labor of love of photography and passion for food. With more than 100 posts, this food and picture blog has made him and his elegant wife and an accomplished cook and food stylist Madhushree Basu Roy much loved food bloggers.
Gitika and Anindya , social media friends and both food lovers hit upon holding a pop-up to showcase the hidden flavors of Assam. A first of its kind event for Kolkata, the city which is famous for its gastronomic canvas, this is one feast you can’t afford to miss.
