Here’s something I probably haven’t mentioned before. I love cooking but I don’t always love it. I cook for this blog only on weekends and that too, not all weekends. So all other meals we eat are normal, everyday things that are mostly South Indian, vegetarian, and not fancy in any way. I do, however, spend an inordinate amount of time on the Internet. This is largely due to the nature of my job but I am also guilty of being that person on the bus or train who has her nose buried in her phone when she could be enjoying the beautiful golden sunset outside.
So all this time spent on the Internet has me curating things like crazy. Apart from Pinterest (follow me here), which has become more mainstream of late, I have always had various bookmark folders, note taking apps, post-it notes, and even old diaries where I note things down constantly. Long story short, I am going to attempt to share a part of that here on a monthly basis.
Obviously this is not my idea. A lot of bloggers share lists of their favourite things but I didn’t realise until recently how much I actually enjoy reading them and discovering new things through them, especially when all involved parties are like-minded. So, here’s my attempt at sharing some stuff that I enjoy as I go through my days, both online and offline.
Breakfast at Google
Food in Google offices across the world is terrific. My most favourite in Sydney is this breakfast menu – beautiful brioche french toast with poached pear, maple syrup, and whipped fresh ricotta cheese. With a glass of cloudy apple juice, this breakfast can keep me happy through the day.
The Tastemade Channel
If you love food and cooking, or even if you don’t, you are seriously missing out if you haven’t checked out the Tastemade channel on YouTube. They have a great line up of cooks and my absolute favourite series is Thirsty For… that focuses on drinks from around the world. Their videos are just my style and my personal favourites are – Aloe Vera Juice and the Masala Chai video below. Actually, they are all good. Happy binge-watching!
