Food, fun and dancing at CuisinArt at Maynard Elks

Food, fun and dancing at CuisinArt at Maynard Elks Tuesday Apr 30, 2019 at 2:21 PM Apr 30, 2019 at 2:21 PM
Some came for the food. Some came for the dancing. Some came to socialize with old friends; some to meet new ones.
Whatever the reason, smiles, laughter and hugs – along with happy taste buds – abounded at this year’s fourth annual CuisinArt event held April 28 at the Maynard Elks Lodge, attended by more than 300 people and organized by the Calcutta Club of Acton.
You don’t have to be from that city in northeast India to attend or participate in the event, although many are, while today many call towns throughout eastern Massachusetts their home.
As he hustled around the room to make sure things stayed on schedule, Chitro Neogy, co-founder of the Calcutta Club and a driving force behind CuisinArt, explained how the event came into being.
“As our kids grew up and we became empty-nesters, we were looking for something different to do, something that was unique while also embodying a nostalgia for India,” he said. “And we also wanted to have fun.”
A lot of fun
And fun they do have.
CuisinArt runs for five hours – the first part of the day is devoted to cuisine; the latter part, the art.
The cuisine part is a friendly – but intense – competition among non-professional chefs, who have 30 minutes to make their specialty dish, pretty much from scratch. When time is up, judges sample their offerings.
This year the categories were vegetarian, general and fusion, with five to six participants in each. As varied as the dishes were, those fixing their specialties all held one thing in common: a passion for cooking.
A judge this year, Maneesh Srivastava from Chelmsford won as a participant in his category in 2017 and then also took the grand prize that year. His winning dish: a chicken tikka roll with mango pineapple salsa accompanied by a local drink from northern India made from mango, mint and other spices.
A passion shared
“Everyone in my family is passionate about cooking and food,” Srivastava said. “My father back in India would help out cooking for weddings and he would cook almost every day when he was home.”
Srivastava just opened a restaurant in Bangalore with his younger brother, Mohit, which he currently assists in managing over the internet and hopes to visit this summer.
Equally passionate about food and cooking was Rajeev Cheemalakonda, who was entered into both the vegetarian and fusion categories.
For the former, he made a dessert called paan lando. It was rolled into a ball, about the size of a golf ball, and included among its ingredients: a rose petal paste, sugar, jam, coconut and betel leaves, which are thought to help with digestion.
There may be something to that as his wife’s grandmother, who lives in India, consumes betel leaves every day. She’s 101 and still going strong.
“I love to cook,” Cheemalakonda said. “I watched my mom when she was cooking and as I grew up enjoyed making my own meals, maybe yogurt or Indian bread, and cooking with friends.”
Among this year’s offerings were katori chaat, a shrimp appetizer, malai chingri, Indian red chili burrito skillet, chili paneer veggie tacos and macher paturi, a tasty-looking salmon dish that is cooked in a special leaf and rubbed with mustard oil.
Food and dancing
“I am a foodie,” admitted Suchismita Roychowdhury, who put together that last dish.
A newcomer to the event, she also admitted to being a little nervous about participating this year, but now that she’s done it once she’s eager to do it again.
As the judges sampled the various offerings, onlookers waited behind them, ready to enjoy a taste of the leftovers.
One, Chanda Walia from Westborough, wore a big smile after tasting a dish that featured peppers.
“Very good,” she said, “Very tasty. I love to cook. Maybe I’ll compete next year.”
The art part of CuisinArt followed the food and featured a variety of elegant dancers and dance styles from India. Dristi Neog, assistant professor of urban and regional planning at Westfield State University, performed a classical dance of India called the Sattriya.
Two artists were also on hand capturing the movements and expression of Neog and the other dancers in real time. Their works were raffled off toward the end of the day, with the proceeds going to the Acton-Boxborough United Way.
Asked about her dancing, Neog laughed.
“Yes,” she said, “I danced a lot when I was younger, but then life got in the way.” Sign up for weekly e-mails

Late Pakistani-American chef Fatima Ali gets James Beard Media Award

Late Pakistani-American Chef Fatima Ali Gets James Beard Media Award Mahnoor Sheikh (@mahnoorsheikh03) 2 days ago Sun 28th April 2019 | 03:40 PM Fatima won the James Beard Media Award for her essay ‘I’m a Chef with Terminal Cancer. This Is What I’m Doing with the Time I Have Left’ written in October 2018 for Bon Appetite magazine.
Lahore (UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News – 28th April, 2019) Late Pakistani-American chef Fatima Ali, who starred in America’s ” Top Chef” competition, has been awarded the James Beard Media Award posthumously.
Fatima Ali died of cancer in New York City on January 16, 2019 after battling the disease for more than one year. She was 29.
Fatima won the James Beard Media Award for her essay ‘I’m a Chef with Terminal Cancer . This Is What I’m Doing with the Time I Have Left’ written in October 2018 for Bon Appetite magazine.
Sharing the achievement, a post from her Instagram account read, “A big thank you to all of the beautiful people around the world who rallied when she wrote her article, to @bonappetitmag and Amanda Shapiro (@amandashaps) who gave her a platform to share herself with the world , and the @beardfoundation for recognizing her talent & positive impact on all of us.”
Karachi-born Fatima moved to New York at age 18 to pursue a career in the restaurant industry . A highly skilled chef, she worked in some of New York ‘s top restaurants for a number of years.
She also had a vendor in Smorgasburg, an open-air food market in Brooklyn, a borough of New York City. It was called ‘VanPakistan’, which sold food based on the Pakistani cuisine.
Popularly known as chef Fati, she had expressed her desire to return home at some point to encourage Pakistani women to take up the profession.
She had competed on Season 15 of Top Chef in Denver and ultimately received the “fan favourite” designation.
Fatima Ali was diagnosed with Ewing’s Sarcoma, a rare form of bone cancer , at the end of 2017 .
The chef underwent chemotherapy and surgery in January 2018 to remove a tumor from her shoulder bone, with ” Top Chef” host Padma Lakshmi, an Indian-American celebrity, by her side.
By summer, she told People magazine she was “technically cancer-free.” But in October , Fatima Ali revealed in an emotional essay that her cancer has returned “with a vengeance.” Doctors told her diagnosis was untreatable and terminal and that she only had a year to live.
She departed in January this year after battling the disease. Facebook Twitter Google + Related Topics

The East Bay restaurants that opened and closed in April

BLUE OX WINE CO. Blue Ox has opened a tasting room within its winery in the burgeoning Fifth Street wine district near Gilman. The tasting area features an eye-catching mural from Oakland artist Madeleine Tonzi framing a handsome wooden bar, and showcases Blue Ox’s small-batch varietals — handmade sparkling wines, Rhône-style reds and distinctly Californian blends, all made from organic, sustainably farmed grapes harvested from Mendocino to Monterey. Co-founders are industry friends and fellow upper-Midwesterners Josh Hammerling and Noah Kenoyer; the winery is named for Paul Bunyan’s ox in the Midwestern-based tall tale. Note: The tasting room’s limited hours are from 1-6 p.m., Friday through Sunday. Blue Ox Wine Co. Tasting Room , 1350 Fifth St. (between Camelia and Gilman), Berkeley
CAFENATED COFFEE COMPANY Taking over the Mission Heirloom space and garden patio in the Gourmet Ghetto is Cafenated Coffee , a husband-wife-owned business that started as an online-only retailer of single-origin coffee made with beans sourced from women farmers at coffee coops in Central America, South America and Africa. Along with various coffee drinks, Cafenated serves tea and pastries. Cafenated Coffee Company , 2085 Vine St. (at Shattuck), Berkeley Collective Kitchen & Bar, a new vegetarian and vegan restaurant in downtown Berkeley. Photo: Sarah Han
COLLECTIVE KITCHEN & BAR This new restaurant on Center Street features vegan and vegetarian comfort foods (mac and cheese, pizza, bowls, soups and salads), juices and vegan cocktails in a spacious, comfortable room with some outdoor seating. On the restaurant’s Yelp profile , the owners write that it is run by “the three remaining members of a seminal north Berkeley collective , which ran its course and closed its doors at the end February of 2019.” However, despite the name, the owners say the new business is not a collectively run organization. Collective Kitchen & Bar , 2132 Center Street (between Shattuck and Oxford), Berkeley
DARYOUSH PERSIAN CUISINE Center Street’s bustle of restaurant activity this month included the soft opening of Daryoush Persian Cuisine, replacing Crunch. Daryoush is named for its owner, a first-time restaurateur who is proudly bringing Persian dining back to the neighborhood (Alborz Persian Cuisine used to sit next door at 2142 Center St.). The sit-down restaurant with a peaceful, welcoming vibe offers a sizeable opening menu of savory stews, soups, kabobs, wraps and rice plates. All meats are halal and come from Harris Ranch. Persian desserts include the doughnut-like zolbia-bamieh , paludeh (fine noodles served icy cold) and ice creams flavored with rosewater, cinnamon and saffron. The restaurant is open daily for lunch and dinner. Expect the menu to evolve over time, and look for a grand opening May 10.

WANTED More flavorful, halal meat choices, this time with a more casual feel, come from Wanted, the very visible new eatery at University and Curtis (look for the giant sign) in the former Crepes Ooh La La (see Closings). Choices for dine-in or take-out are eclectic and meaty, from cheesesteak sandwiches, cheeseburgers, chicken wings and fried fish sandwiches, to specialty platters of Middle Eastern fare such as shish tawook , kufta and shish kababs with salads and sides. Try the Wanted Sauce, a light, creamy combination of garlic, lemon and secret spices with a kick. Nosh appreciated the small eatery’s friendliness, cleanliness and attention to detail. Wanted , 1160 University Avenue (at Curtis), Berkeley Closed
BEAR’S LAIR TAVERN With the coming of spring, so closes another incarnation of the Bear’s Lair. Reopened by the Red Door Group at the beginning of 2018’s fall semester with chef David Lawrence at the helm, the newly named Bear’s Lair Tavern seemed the right fit for the on-again, off-again watering hole that first opened in 1962. However, a reader tipped Nosh to the sign posted this month mentioning “ongoing discussions” between the ASUC Student Union and restaurant owners around “re-imagining use of the space,” and it has once again closed until further notice. Stay tuned.
CHINA CENTER Shuttered after only a handful of months is China Center on Center Street, with new sit-down restaurant and bar Easterly Hunan Cuisine already poised to take its place. The closure and signage switch seemed to happen overnight the weekend of April 20, though Easterly was not yet entirely open to the public as of press time. There is an Easterly in Santa Clara , but it is unclear whether the new location is from the same owners. Nosh spoke briefly with one of the workers, who said the restaurant will open in May. We will have more details once the new venue is fully up and running. Crave Asia has closed and signs for the next restaurant, Pho Le, are already up. Photo: Joanna Della Penna
CRAVE ASIA A reader alerted us to the abrupt closure of Crave Asia and a new sign already up at the corner of San Pablo and Gilman. The new restaurant’s name is Pho Le Restaurant & Tea Bar, and despite the speedy signage, the opening is TBD.
CREPES OOH LA LA The final Berkeley location of this long-standing crêperie mini-chain, née Crêpes A Go Go before a divorce led to divided properties and names, has closed for good. New restaurant Wanted opened in the space this month (see Openings).
JUICE ORIGINZ After two years of construction and only one year in business, Telegraph Avenue lost Juice Originz this month. The vegan shop specialized in fresh juices and almond milk drinks, including vegan smoothies. A new restaurant called Savory Kitchen will open in its place. Priya in Berkeley closed after 16 years in business. Photo: Joanna Della Penna
PRIYA INDIAN CUISINE For 16 years, the block of San Pablo Avenue between Addison and University has been marked by the brick-red awning and white script signage of Priya Indian Cuisine. The family-owned restaurant, known for Northern and Southern Indian dishes and affordable buffets, quietly went dark this month, though the awning remains. A farewell note on Priya’s website says that it’s time for the owners to “take on another journey.”
SAHA Last week, Nosh detailed chef-owner Mohamed Aboghanem’s decision to close Saha at Shattuck and Haste on April 28, in order to focus on the Saha restaurant and lounge in San Francisco. Though his food will be missed locally, diehard fans can still find his expressive Middle Eastern cooking inside the Hotel Carlton on Sutter Street in San Francisco, just across the bridge.
SUNRISE DELI Family-owned Sunrise Deli operated a popular Berkeley falafel shop at the edge of Cal’s campus for 15 years, along with two brick-and-mortars in San Francisco, a food truck and catering service. Earlier this month Nosh learned that owners Linda Erakat and her husband and son would close the Berkeley shop , so that Erakat, who was its main operator, could recover from breast cancer surgery and devote more time to her grandchildren. The Berkeley community wishes her well. The other Sunrise Deli businesses remain in full operation, including catering still available in Berkeley. Temporarily closed A peek inside Gregoire, currently closed due to a fire. Photo: Joanna Della Penna
GREGOIRE Despite a nasty kitchen fire the morning of April 3 that has left chef Gregoire Jacquet’s famous little French take-out shop in disrepair, contractors told Nosh on a recent visit that they are confident that Gregoire will reopen in a matter of weeks . Fingers crossed (though we’ve heard this tale before ). Oakland Open
EL LORO Taking over from small, homestyle Mexican eatery Gerardo’s in the Laurel is El Loro, with a spruced-up interior and similar menu of tacos, burritos, quesadillas and soups. El Loro , 3811 MacArthur Blvd. (between Loma Vista and Brown), Oakland
HERE’S HOW Jennifer Colliau, a Bay Area bartending maven and former five-year beverage director of The Interval at Fort Mason’s Long Now Foundation in San Francisco, has opened her long-awaited solo project in Oakland. Lucky Oakland! The sophisticated, spacious bar, called Here’s How, boasts a high-involvement level of detail in cocktail science, allowing Colliau and her team of innovators to really stretch their legs. Look for a laboratory-like prep room featuring a bandsaw for cutting perfectly clear ice, digital thermometers to ensure drinks are served at just the right temperature, canned cocktails, and plenty of talent both behind the bar and in the kitchen. Chef Jordan Grosser, of Stag Dining, has carefully created a menu of bar bites that matches the creativity and execution of Colliau’s cocktails, with snacks like Popcorn Shrimp Popcorn, made with Bay shrimp, popcorn and Korean chile butter, and Pickled Eggs & Pretzels, turmeric-pickled eggs and a Firebrand soft pretzel with hot peppers and mustard. A private room in the back seats about 20 and booking it comes with its own bartender. Here’s How , 1780 Telegraph Ave. (between 17th and 18th), Oakland Owner Katie Wages helps customers at I Scream Donuts in Oakland’s Temescal neighborhood. Photo: Joanna Della Penna
I SCREAM DONUTS It’s off to a bare-bones start of mostly evening hours, zero decor and only a handful of flavors of Tara’s Organic Ice Cream, but one bite of chocolate-peanut butter swirl stuffed inside a warmed, glazed Rainbow Donut, topped with organic powdered sugar, and it’s clear why fans of new Temescal shop I Scream Donuts are happy to overlook any soft-opening hiccups. Owner Katie Wages also runs a small home daycare , hence her evening shop hours; summer will bring earlier weekday starts and more ice cream flavors. Look for a grand opening May 11, and we’ll see you in line. I Scream Donuts , 4731 Telegraph Ave. (between 47th and 48th), Oakland Krispy Krunchy Chicken at White Horse Liquors in Oakland.

KRISPY KRUNCHY CHICKEN Growing chain Krispy Krunchy is speedily turning gas stations and liquor stores into symbiotic, fast-casual vending stations for Cajun-style fried chicken, honey butter biscuits and sides such as mac ‘n cheese. Now found across the Bay Area, Krispy Krunchy’s newest outpost is inside the White Horse Liquors store on Telegraph Avenue. Look for the red, white and yellow banners.

OAKLAND UNITED BEERWORKS TAPROOM Oakland United Beerworks launched its roomy, inviting new Jack London Square taproom on April 12, featuring eight of its craft beers on tap. Hours are 4-10 p.m., Friday; noon to 10 p.m., Saturday; and noon to 8 p.m., Sunday.

R’ NOODLES Now open next door to Cam Anh in Oakland’s Chinatown is R’ Noodles, softly launched on the last day of March. The Chinese noodle eatery features soups, including Guilin-style noodles, as well as colorful dumplings and a range of additional chewy, slurpy specialties in an unassuming space. R’ Noodles , 930 Webster St. (between Ninth and 10th), Oakland
TOWN SQUARE EATS Found inside Jack London Square’s new Crooked City Cider Taphouse is Town Square Eats. The eatery, with a separate checkout station inside the taphouse, is a collaboration between Perle Wine Bar’s Rob Lam and Helen Chandra, and Great China’s James and Lea Yu. Cider-friendly menu items include sandwiches, salads, gluten-free pizza, Impossible Burgers and truffle chips. Town Square Eats , inside Crooked City Cider , 206 Broadway (at Third), Oakland
XINGONES Mayra A. Velazquez and Justino “Tino” Perez’s fried chicken and street tacos pop-up took over the kitchen of Fort Green in Old Oakland earlier this month. Here, you’ll find fried chicken and waffles, tacos, tortas, salads, nachos and other bar bites. Xingones started, and continues to pop-up, at the Laney College flea market (8 a.m. to 4 p.m., Sundays). Fort Green , 736 Washington Ave. (at Eighth), Oakland Mee Cook, a Thai noodle salad, at Yimm in Oakland. Photo: Yimm/Facebook
YIMM Those addicted to the rich, flavorful Thai dishes of Imm Thai Street Food in downtown Berkeley will be excited to learn that sister restaurant Yimm, from the same owners, has opened in Rockridge’s former Osmanthus space. Look for a broader, more upscale menu of authentic Thai homestyle “comfort food,” including curries, wok noodles, omelets, rice plates and soups, as well as cocktails from the full bar. Yimm , 6048 College Ave. (at Florio), Oakland Closed
BAR 41 Despite community fundraising attempts, Bar 41 on 41st at Broadway shuttered on April 25. In an Instagram post, owner Chris Parks announced, “That’s all she wrote, folks! Thank you to everyone that supported us in every way, I lived the dream and now it’s over.” Parks first bought the attractive, split-level space in 2017 when it was Café Underwood, renamed it Bar Underwood and eventually changed the name to Bar 41 to avoid confusing customers who expected a café. Despite quality drinks and food and loyal patronage, the bar and restaurant couldn’t find its footing and will be missed. Oakland Chinatown Taiwanese restaurant Chan’s Kitchen has closed.

CHAN’S KITCHEN The Oakland location of Taiwanese eatery Chan’s Kitchen at 930 Webster has closed. The Chan’s Kitchen in Dublin remains open, and interestingly, the original Chan’s Kitchen in Newark is also still in operation, but has recently reopened as a fast-casual Japanese restaurant.
KOKOLATO After a brief attempt at a partnership, Classic Cars West owner Michael Sarcona has confirmed that he has parted ways with fledgling vegan gelato maker Kokolato . No word yet on where the Bali-originated purveyor might land next.
GERARDO’S MEXICAN RESTAURANT Long-loved, no-frills Gerardo’s in the Laurel District, known for its inexpensive, loaded burritos, tacos and occasional tamales, has closed. The space has reopened as El Loro (see Openings). Geoffrey Deetz seen at The Temple Club. Photo: Jeffrey Edalatpour
TEMPLE CLUB Geoffrey Deetz’s well-regarded Temple Club, which specialized in central and northern Vietnamese cuisine , has closed. The restaurant had been listed for sale since late last year, but we have no further details at this time.
UMAMI MART The original location of Umami Mart at 815 Broadway closed on April 15 , but Nosh is excited to welcome Umami Mart a bit closer to Berkeley when it moves its retail shop and new tasting room serving Japanese sakes, craft beers and select shochus to Temescal at 4027 Broadway. Although a May 1 opening date was anticipated, construction delays will likely push the opening date back. Beyond Open
EL AGAVE AZUL A tipster alerted Berkeleyside that Richmond welcomed attractive newcomer El Agave Azul at the end of March.

NANA DESSERTS A new sweet shop specializing in Syrian desserts opened at the El Cerrito Peppermint Tree Plaza in late March. The young couple who runs the business are originally from Yemen, but told Nosh “the best desserts are from Syria.” Along with its most popular pastry, baklava, Nana carries warbat with pistachio, asabi with pistachio, baluriya and harisi (with almonds or pistachios). Aside from these Middle Eastern desserts, Nana also offers ice cream, smoothies, milkshakes, coffee and tea. Nana Desserts , 10172 San Pablo Ave. (near Lincoln), El Cerrito
NEW DUMPLING Thanks to a reader tip, Nosh editor Sarah Han shone a little spotlight last week on this new Chinese eatery softly opened in El Cerrito’s former Cigar Box Kitchen space. Though it’s the owners’ first restaurant, New Dumpling’s handmade dumplings filled with 10 (and growing) flavor combinations, along with its savory side dishes, Szechuan beef noodle soup and other specialties are already drawing eager crowds. Since the review ran, Nosh has heard the restaurant has sold out early every day, so you may want to plan your visit in a few weeks.

Puranik Yogendra elected to be a City Councillor in Edogawa, Tokyo

It’s not uncommon for political posters
of Japanese candidates to use nicknames
or kana to help voters remember them. Puranik Yogendra (Nickname in Japanese: よぎ {Yogi}) was born in western India in 1977. He was the eldest son of three brothers. His father works at the factory and his mother is a seamstress. After graduating in India, he continued his education and earned a master’s degree in international economy and international management. At the same time, he holds degrees in IT (computer development) and the Japanese language.
He first visited Japan as a student in 1997 and 1999, funded by the government. After college, he was given a job offer from a US company, but he chose to work in IT in Japan in 2001. He got married that year, and had his first child the year after that. His wife teaches at an overseas university, so he raises his son alone in Japan. Because of this, he became acutely aware of the challenges and difficulties of raising a child while maintaining a career.
His family moved to an apartment complex in 西葛西 {Nishikasai} in 2005, quickly becoming actively involved with the local resident’s association, such as planning and holding festivals and events, planning the annual お盆祭りO-bon matsuri (O-bon dance festival), and conducting seminars on waste management, disaster preparation, and adapting to the Japanese lifestyle for Indian residents who are new to the apartment complex. Additionally, he volunteers to teach computer literacy and skills to seniors in his neighborhood, as well as participating in the PTA for his child’s school as an officer.
He has been engaged in volunteer activities and since 2008 has been holding PC classes for elderly people in Nishi Kasai. He actively participated in PTA activities as a senior or an officer. Additionally, he won the PTA Table Tennis Club’s team competition. His child attended both international school as well as public elementary and middle school in Japan, and is now studying in the U.K. under scholarship.
Yogi soon established himself as a leader within the Indian community in Japan. He established the Japan-Indian Association with the support of the Indian Embassy in Tokyo, and became its first president. He built a huge network of Indians in Japan, focusing on welfare and educational activities.
While many foreign residents fled Japan after the 2011 Great East Japan Earthquake and tsunami, Yogi stayed and actively volunteered and conducted fundraising activities in Japan. This included visiting the disaster areas several times and helping out with food distribution, cleaning, and health care.
The events of 3.11 inspired Yogi to apply for naturalization in 2011. His application was accepted in 2012, thus becoming a Japanese national.
Yogi is currently working as a manager at a Japanese bank while simultaneously serving as a visiting lecturer for 外務省 {gaimushō} ( MoFA ), other government agencies, and various companies. If that wasn’t enough, he also operates a culture center and an Indian restaurant. He even won a prestigious industry award in 2016 from Edogawa for his Indian cuisine. Television watchers in Japan have probably seen his face at least once as he is often featured in local programming. Eido Inoue ‘s Becoming legally Japanese ©2010 ( cc:BY-NC-SA )
