All things spice

Garima Arora, Asia’s Best Female Chef 2019, wants to change people’s perceptions of Indian cuisine 7 Jun 2019 at 04:00 0 comments NEWSPAPER SECTION: LIFE | WRITER: NIANNE-LYNN HENDRICKS
Chef Garima Arora. Photo: Somchai Poomlard – + It has been quite a year for chef Garima Arora. Not only did her restaurant, Gaa, become the first helmed by an Indian woman chef to be awarded a Michelin star, she was also named Asia’s Best Female Chef 2019. Two major accolades within two years of her opening her first restaurant. No mean feat.
“What excites me as a cook is trying something new,” says chef Arora, a Noma alum. “New flavours, new ingredients. Something that doesn’t have a reference point, that makes you think, ‘I really enjoy this a lot’. That is how I cook and that is what Gaa is. It’s meant to be different.”
The idea is to surprise guests with new combinations of flavours or textures. The Mumbai-born chef is focused on making her cuisine different.
“It has to evoke a response of a certain sort. Not just, ‘Oh, this is something’. It is more than that,” she explains. “When food is strange and you don’t have a reference point, you are trying to taste it and identify it with different parts of your palate. You think about it historically or maybe from an anthropological point of view — What are you eating? Why are you eating this? — because there is no reference point. This is what really excites me. This is what we go for in the kitchen, as well. Newer tools, a newer repertoire to make something that diners go, ‘Oh, what’s that?!.”
At Gaa, chef Arora focuses on Indian techniques, like charcoal cooking, using a wood-fired oven, pickling and fermenting. Currently, she is focused on drawing umami from fruit and vegetables.
“That is something we do so naturally and instinctively, being Indian, which is why I serve jackfruit as a main course,” she says. “So many people advised against it, but to me it was almost like a challenge.”
The menu at Gaa, though modern, is very much based on longstanding Indian traditions.

“Because that is where I am from and it is what I have grown up eating,” she says. “Having a little more of an intellectual approach to how you look at Indian food is very important. This is what French cuisine did for the new Nordic food movement. Indian food has the same tools to give chefs a way to make a more modern cuisine in this part of the world.
“I am Indian, this is what I do best. No one is going to reinvent Indian food; it’s silly to even think that you can because it is so steeped in history. But what you can do is learn from it and understand that it gives you the tools to do something totally different. Food is such an intensive part of being Indian.”
Chef Arora is firmly of the belief that when you eat something, it should put a smile on your face: “That’s what I want to see in my guests. What goes in the dish is to that end only. At Gaa, you will never see anything theatrical or dramatic [like] smoke coming out of things. You’ve seen our pork belly and how simple the presentation is. The flavour and the food should speak for itself.”
Everything at Gaa is born out of negative food pairing.
“How do you surprise guests? By pairing ingredients that don’t necessarily go together,” she adds. The banana, koji and caviar dish epitomises this. “These are ingredients not normally associated with each other.”
One item that has always been a mainstay of Gaa’s menu is grilled young corn with corn milk, often hailed as a standout dish. It is surprising to learn that chef Arora isn’t a big fan of the cereal.
“Before this, I never ate corn,” she laughs. “I always thought corn was one of the most unimaginative ingredients. Then this dish came about and we have never been able to take it off the menu. If I see corn on a menu, I would never order it!”
At Gaa, spices are not used in the traditional way. Instead of putting 10 spices together, chef Arora takes one spice and highlights it.

“The quail and cardamom stock that we have is sensational — so warming and comforting. And yet, it makes you think of so many other things. This is what Indian food is all about. A curry will always be a curry, an example of how you use spices. But so much more is possible,” she says.
Her signature dish of strawberry, caviar and how wor oil came about completely by fluke.
“We were tasting different things and ended up tasting strawberry with caviar. We then thought about negative food pairings and found out that Indian food has the highest ratio of negative food pairings. That’s the whole idea of how it came about at Gaa. Though we were doing it, we just didn’t know the word for it. After a little research, we realised that Gaa’s cuisine mostly stems from negative food pairings,” she says.
Sure enough, you never see obvious pairings on the menu at Gaa.
“Even if I cook outside of Gaa, you will never see these pairings,” she insists.
Chef Arora’s culinary philosophy is simple: “You have to think, why do you cook the way you do and why do you put certain things together? It is also about being in touch with who you are as a person while you’re cooking.”
An enthusiastic supporter of womens’ associations in her hometown (known as “mahila mandals”), for women to have a fighting chance in the world, she believes that they must have education and economic independence.
“Education will lead to economic independence — knowing what you want and having the money to get it,” she says.
Meanwhile, she remains as ambitious as ever.
“I want to be better at what we do, though it has only been two years. Keeping this momentum going is important. As you evolve and grow as time passes, the idea of your restaurant changes as well. There are many changes I want to do at Gaa, interior-wise, staff-wise, food-wise, feel-wise. I think we shall take this year to concentrate on that and next year we will have a better restaurant for people to come eat at.”

Capella Bangkok Delves Into the Culinary Heritage of the Riverside Community

June 5, 2019
Bangkok (Thailand) – June 3, 2019 ( travelindex.com ) – Capella Bangkok, the luxurious new boutique retreat nestled on the east bank of the legendary “River of Kings”, the Chao Phraya, will introduce guests to the rich cultural and culinary heritage of Charoenkrung, its charming and rapidly re-emerging riverside neighbourhood.
Charoenkrung was one of Bangkok’s main thoroughfares up until the early 20th Century, when trade and traffic still depended on the river. For centuries, new settlers docked on the shores of the Chao Phraya, bringing with them not only new thoughts and beliefs, but also fresh hopes and dreams. Charoenkrung became a bubbling melting pot of race, religion and cuisine, and it retains this vibrant character to this day.
Capella Bangkok’s head Thai chef, Wichian Trirattanavatin, was born in Charoenkrung, which makes him the perfect person to showcase the gastronomy of this diverse district. Chef Lek, as he is better known, has a lifelong connection with the neighbourhood; as a child he toured the area’s bustling markets and “hole in the wall” restaurants with his father, who worked as a chef in the area for 40 years. Many of the street food stalls and shophouse restaurants he frequented as a boy are still here today – often run by the same people – and he still pays them regular visits on his trusty scooter.
“It’s the sights, the sounds, the smells and above all the moments that make this place truly special,” Chef Lek says. “There’s so much food here; so much variety. And each dish, every recipe, tells its own story. Charoenkrung is part of my soul, so it is a great honour to introduce the cuisine of my home to international guests. Charoenkrung has always welcomed the world and Capella Bangkok will continue this proud legacy.”
Guests can discover a wide variety of street food snacks and authentic dishes on the streets of Charoenkrung, many of which have their roots in other countries and cultures. Chinese noodles, Southeast Asian satay and Indian curry puffs are all handmade for hungry locals, alongside classic Thai snacks such as moo ping (grilled pork skewers) and sai oua (Thai sausages). Many of the family-run stalls can trace their roots back multiple generations.
Around every corner hidden treasures await; countless reminders of the traditions of Chaorenkrung and the Chao Phraya, just waiting to be rediscovered.
Capella Bangkok will deliver exceptional and authentic dining experiences that are woven into the fabric of their destination. Following in his father’s footsteps, Chef Lek will combine time-honoured recipes and fresh ingredients with contemporary cooking techniques to elevate local cuisine to the highest levels of global gastronomy, delivering delectable and beautifully presented dishes in an exquisite riverfront setting.
John Blanco, General Manager of Capella Bangkok, comments: “At Capella Bangkok, we are focused on creating luxurious and highly authentic experiences that echo the traditions of our destination. Whether it is through art, entertainment or cuisine, we strive to showcase the rich culture of the Charoenkrung district. Our cuisine will reflect the re-awakening of this captivating Charoenkrung neighbourhood.”
The Capella Personal Assistants will help guests at Capella Bangkok craft their own local experiences, providing first-hand encounters with resident luminaries and inspiring them to create and share their own memories about the city’s most intriguing enclave: Charoenkrung.
About Capella Bangkok Capella Bangkok offers 101 suites and the city’s first riverfront villas located within the highly-anticipated Chao Phraya Estate, a more-than-14-acre prime waterfront land development that boasts unprecedented accessibility and 350 metres of riverfront real estate.

Crafted local experiences, provided by the Capella Personal Assistant, will offer guests first-hand encounters with resident luminaries and inspire them to create and share their own memories about the city’s most intriguing enclave.

Painting over history, saving cats’ claws, angry birds: News from around our 50 states

A.J. White, 23, cradles Genki, one of his two companion cats. (Photo: Lonnie White via AP) Denver: A housing authority accused of violating the federal rights of tenants with disabilities by charging a $300 fee for companion animals has settled a lawsuit for $950,000. The agreement followed a three-year fight over the Meeker Housing Authority’s efforts to tighten restrictions on keeping pets at the federally subsidized apartment building for families. Attorneys said the agency refused to make exceptions for two tenants whose cats and dog were recommended by doctors to cope with depression and anxiety. One of the affected tenants, 23-year-old A.J. White, has severe depression and often refused to get out of bed until he and his father adopted two cats named Genki and Haim. A.J. White has held a job as a cashier for five years and graduated high school but medication can exacerbate his depression and anxiety, said his father, Lonnie White. The cats changed everything. Connecticut
U.S. District Judge Ellen Bree Burns (Photo: Christian Abraham/Hearst Connecticut Media via AP) Hartford: Retired U.S. District Judge Ellen Bree Burns, the first woman to serve on the federal bench in Connecticut and widely admired as a pioneer and role model, has died at 95. Burns, nominated by President Jimmy Carter in 1978, served nearly four decades on the federal bench. Mobsters, Hells Angels and drug dealers were among those she sent to prison. “Most of my cases now were drug cases,” Burns said shortly before she retired in 2015. “Things haven’t gotten better since the war on drugs began. It’s awful, all the destruction this causes to families, neighborhoods and cities. I look at the families of the defendants and just wonder how awful it is for them.” U.S. District Judge Stefan Underhill said of Burns: “She was just a trailblazer.” Delaware Dover: Democratic lawmakers want to increase the state’s minimum wage to $15 an hour. The proposal comes after Democrats who control both chambers of the General Assembly rammed through a minimum wage increase in the middle of the night on the final day of last year’s session but had to delay implementation after Republicans withheld support for a key budget bill. A new bill would increase the $8.75 minimum wage to $11 on Jan. 1, 2020, followed by a $1 raise each year until it hits $15 in 2024. District of Columbia Washington: City Councilman David Grosso plans to resurrect a bill to decriminalize sex work in the District, and two women were arrested after they climbed flagpoles to hang signs reading “decrim now” in pink letters. A 2017 effort was opposed by Council Chairman Phil Mendelson; Councilman Jack Evans said the 2017 bill would make the city a “mecca for prostitution.” Florida
A gator was found in the kitchen of a Clearwater, Fla., home. (Photo: Clearwater Police Department via Facebook) Clearwater: A male alligator was found in a kitchen after breaking into a Clearwater home, the Naples Daily News reports. The 10- to 11-foot gator broke in through low windows about 3:30 a.m. Friday; a video of the critter in the resident’s kitchen has since gone viral. The gator knocked over several wine bottles and suffered minor cuts to a shoulder during its capture, Clearwater police spokeswoman Joelle Castelli says. The gator will be taken to a private farm in Fort Meade if deemed to be a candidate for relocation. Georgia Atlanta: The city’s public transit agency has laid out a preliminary timeline that delays some highly anticipated construction projects, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports. The Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority calls for launching two bus rapid transit lines and making other bus improvements by 2025. Construction would also start in the coming years on a streetcar extension. But light rail along the Atlanta Beltline would not be completed until after 2040 and would include only two-thirds of the Beltline loop. Hawaii Wailuku: A Maui landlord was ordered to pay nearly $3,000 for taking items from the apartment of his pregnant tenant while police were investigating her disappearance. Carly “Charli” Scott disappeared five years ago. Her body was never found, but ex-boyfriend Steven Capobianco is serving life in prison for her murder. Scott’s landlord Nafetalai Finau, 71, was sentenced for taking her things, including a television and baby toys. Idaho Boise: Researchers at the University of Idaho say the amount of carbon dioxide being released into the atmosphere from forest fires in the West is being greatly overestimated, possibly leading to poor land management decisions. Their study published in the journal Global Change Biology say many estimates are 59% to 83% higher than what is found in field observations. The researchers say it’s important to correct overestimates of carbon released during fires because federal and local governments use such estimates when making land management decisions for activities such as logging. Illinois Chicago: Filmmaker Richard Rowley’s documentary about the 2014 fatal shooting of Chicago teenager Laquan McDonald by police officer Jason Van Dyke will premiere on Showtime June 14 after a screening at the University of Chicago. Rowley’s documentary, a collaboration with Chicago journalist Jamie Kalven, includes scenes from inside the courtroom, exultant community activists outside City Hall as Van Dyke’s guilty verdict is read and a somber post-trial interview with the ex-cop’s lawyer. Indiana Gary: The Gary Community School Corp. has apologized after a teacher gave an 11-year-old autistic student a trophy naming him the “most annoying male” of the school year. A special education teacher at Bailly Preparatory Academy gave the boy the trophy May 23 during a fifth-grade awards luncheon attended by students, parents and the principal. The boy’s father said his family was blindsided. The district’s emergency manager said disciplinary action was being taken against the employees involved but he declined to comment on their employment status. Iowa
Jeff Jorgenson looks over a partially flooded field he farms near Shenandoah, Iowa, on May 29. About a quarter of his land was lost this year to Missouri River flooding. (Photo: Nati Harnik, AP) Des Moines: Because of wet weather, it has been decades since Iowa farmers were so far behind in planting their expected corn and soybean crops. The U.S. Department of Agriculture reports that 80% of the expected corn crop had been planted by Sunday, the smallest percentage since 1982. The 41% of the soybean crop that had been planted was the smallest percentage since 1993. Kansas Topeka: A man is suing the city for nearly $2.78 million in damages for injuries he suffered when he fell through a gap in a highway bridge in the same place four people have plunged through since 2001, including a 14-year-old boy who died. The lawsuit contends Trong Do Turner suffered severe and disabling injuries on July 9, 2017, when he fell through a gap between the northbound and southbound lanes of the Kansas Avenue Bridge where he mistakenly believed there was a sidewalk. Kentucky Frankfort: Republican Gov. Matt Bevin says he doesn’t know anything about the circumstances leading to the dismissal of his lieutenant governor’s chief of staff – a shake-up that prompted Lt. Gov. Jenean Hampton to send out a tweet asking for prayers in her fight against “dark forces.” Bevin dropped Hampton from his ticket as he launched his reelection campaign. Hampton has said little publicly about her removal. But the dismissal of her top deputy intensified her feud with Bevin’s administration over shake-ups in her office. Louisiana
Louisiana lawmakers agreed Tuesday on new labeling rules. (Photo: Jenny Kane/AP) Baton Rouge: Bye-bye, cauliflower rice. See you later, chicken-free strips. State lawmakers have agreed to labeling restrictions that will keep veggie products from being called meat, non-rice products from being described as rice and sugar alternatives from being marketed as sugar. A 31-7 Senate vote Tuesday gave final passage to the bill by Democratic Sen. Francis Thompson. Supporters say they’re making sure consumers know what they’re buying and protecting farmers who have spent millions to brand their products. But opponents say the change will limit veggie product availability in Louisiana. Maine Augusta: It may not qualify as a thrill on Blueberry Hill, but some changes are coming in the way Maine promotes the important crop. The Wild Blueberry Commission of Maine will now have 10 members instead of eight, and five must be representatives of growers, potentially including organic growers and members of tribal groups. The industry has faced low prices to growers and declines in the size of the harvest in recent years. Maryland Salisbury: As the mid-Atlantic heats up and sharks migrate to northern waters, a great white shark has paid a visit near Ocean City. OCEARCH, a research organization that tracks sharks and other species by satellite, says the tagged shark named Brunswick (after the Georgia city) is 8 feet, 9 inches long and weighs about 430 pounds. Brunswick was first tagged Feb. 26 off the coast of Hilton Head, South Carolina. Since then, he has traveled about 1,290 miles, OCEARCH says. Massachusetts Boston: Massachusetts could soon be a step closer to banning hand-held cellphone use by motorists. The state Senate is expected to take up legislation on Thursday that aims to crack down on distracted drivers who are blamed for thousands of serious crashes each year. The House passed a similar bill last month. Under the legislation, motorists would be allowed to use only cellphones with hands-free technology. Michigan
The Island House Hotel is the oldest hotel on Mackinac Island. (Photo: The Island House) Detroit: Planning on spending summer vacation at one of the nation’s top island destinations? There’s a reward out for that. Mackinac Island is offering a program for dining and hotel purchases that gives users 5-10% back through its 906 Rewards Club. The island, where visitors swap cars for horses or bikes, was ranked America’s sixth-best island by Conde Nast and TripAdvisor’s No. 1 summer travel destination in 2018. Minnesota Minneapolis: Boosted by community donations, a beloved barn that was destroyed by a tornado last year is almost ready to reopen. The family-run Red Barn Farm in Northfield hosts weddings and a public pizza night. With the love from the community, the family behind the popular barn never questioned whether they would rebuild. “It was pretty touching, and to have a big group of people come out and help us with that tree mess. It was like, ‘Wow,’ ” owner Tammy Winter told WCCO-TV. The Winters have weddings booked into 2020, including one for their daughter. Mississippi Biloxi: Mississippi’s shrimp fleet has received its ceremonial blessing for the 90th time, even as shrimpers worry about floodwaters harming shrimp production. WLOX-TV reports shrimp boats passed through the Biloxi Channel with flags flying after a wreath was dropped from a helicopter to remember those who have died. The Mississippi Sound, a nursery for young shrimp, has been inundated with Mississippi River floodwater released through Louisiana’s Bonnet Carre Spillway. That’s made the protected arm of the Gulf of Mexico much less salty than usual, and could harm shrimp production. Missouri Joplin: Those cleaning up from a southwest Missouri tornado outbreak have a new challenge after a heavy rain: mosquitoes. “Nuisance mosquitoes are usually the first populations to take advantage of flooded conditions,” said Howard Pue of the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services. “But those populations begin to die down as waters recede.” Gary Stubblefield, a volunteer coordinator, said those cleaning up after an EF-3 tornado struck Carl Junction on May 22 have asked for repellent contributions since their second day at the site. Montana
A fully leafed out green ash tree, right, stands in stark contrast to two Linden trees in the background that have barely begun to leaf. (Photo: David Murray) Great Falls: It’s warming up in Great Falls, but a dry fall followed by a long stretch of subzero weather in February may have had devastating effects on the city’s plant life. City forester Todd Seymanski says some damaged trees and shrubs may have enough stored energy to survive, while others that appear healthy now may fail in the coming months, the Great Falls Tribune reports. Nebraska Norfolk: The longtime editor of the Norfolk Daily News in northeast Nebraska says he intends to retire this summer. Kent Warneke worked for the Omaha World-Herald before becoming managing editor at the Daily News in 1982. He moved up to become editor and vice president in 1992. Warneke says “there couldn’t be a better place to have spent all these years than in Norfolk at the Daily News.” His successor hasn’t been named. Nevada
At 74 and needing three surgeries, Socorro Streight thinks it might be time to sell one of Nevada’s best-loved burger joints. (Photo: Provided to RGJ Media/TravelNevada Flilckr) Reno: A burger joint often ranked among the best in Nevada – a sizzling outpost of double cheeseburgers on a wind-scoured stretch of U.S. 95 – has gone on the market. Socorro’s Burger Hut occupies blazing barn-red digs in Mina, a minuscule settlement (population 150 or so) in dusty Mineral County. “I’m getting old, honey,” says owner Soccoro Streight, 74, who has been chief cook and bottle washer for 16 years. New Hampshire Dover: Two University of New Hampshire students have been accused of using stolen credit cards to pay for tuition. Police say Chunyang Li, 20, sought to pay the university over $56,000 using credit cards from nine people in six states and Australia. Chenghan Wang, 20, was accused of using a credit card from Maryland to charge over $6,300 to pay UNH. New Jersey Trenton: New Jersey property-tax payers would get a $125 refundable credit on their income taxes under a proposal that also calls for higher rates on the wealthy that Democratic Gov. Phil Murphy detailed for the first time Monday. A key component of the proposed relief hinges on raising income tax rates for people making $1 million and above from 8.97% to 10.75%. New Mexico Santa Fe: New Mexico School for the Arts jazz instructor Orlando Madrid has been fired for making up fake awards for a student. The Albuquerque Journal reported last month that Madrid made up first-place certificates for a student who performed at the non-competitive New York City Jazz Festival in April. Madrid told the newspaper he made the certificates based on judges’ input and that he thought the awards would help with fundraising. New York
Assemblywoman Linda Rosenthal, D-Manhattan, celebrates as her bill banning the declawing of cats is passed Tuesday in the state Assembly. (Photo: Hans Pennink/AP) Albany: New York would be the first state in the U.S. to ban the declawing of cats under legislation approved by lawmakers Tuesday at the request of cat owners, animal welfare advocates and many veterinarians who call the procedure cruel and needless. The bill, which would subject veterinarians to $1,000 fines for performing the operation, now heads to the desk of Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo, North Carolina Greensboro: Two Guilford County judges have made emotional pleas to stop “senseless” violence. Superior Court Judge David Hall sentenced a man Monday to 25 years in prison for second-degree murder and armed robbery, telling him the murder was senseless and calling the robbery that took place days later indicative of the mindset that has “devoured” most of the county. Judge Lora Cubbage scolded a 27-year-old woman accused of ordering the death of a 16-year-old. Cubbage, who is black, shouted that the woman shouldn’t “tell me another black life matters if it doesn’t matter to you.” North Dakota Fargo: A longtime pilot and flight instructor says he’s considering legal action to get his license back, claiming he’s the victim of age discrimination. Victor Gelking, 91, says federal regulators revoked his pilot’s and flight instructor licenses after he was involved in a moving violation at Hector International Airport. KFGO reports he’s accused of crossing a closed runway without permission from the control tower. Gelking says he passed his medical exams and that his age is not relevant to his license status. Ohio
Red-winged blackbird. (Photo: Nancy Nabak) Cincinnati: Just like in the 1963 Alfred Hitchcock film, an Ohio woman reports that she was attacked twice in two nights by red-winged blackbirds at Voice of America Park in West Chester. Theresa Walrath says the second attacker was more aggressive, clawing into her scalp. Walrath is not alone: Park spokeswoman Kelly Barkley says that during mating season, male red-winged blackbirds are fiercely territorial of their nests. Oklahoma Weatherford: The popular Stafford Air & Space Museum is growing so it can make room for two large new items. Construction has started on a 20,000-square-foot addition, and the existing 42,000 square feet will be renovated. A lunar space module, which stands two stories tall, and an F-117 stealth fighter jet will be the main attractions in the addition. The $5.4 million project will result in about 400 new exhibits. Oregon Portland: Harry’s Fresh Foods plans to close its Portland operation in August and lay off 195 employees as it moves to Everett, Washington. Officials say the 80,000-square-foot food processing and packaging site is too small and too poorly maintained to operate economically. Harry’s was established 41 years ago in Oregon City as Harry’s Mustache Restaurant. The company sells refrigerated and frozen soups, meals, side dishes and desserts. Kettle Cuisine of Massachusetts purchased Harry’s in April. Pennsylvania Harrisburg: Amid growing demand among mothers and hospitals for breast milk, Pennsylvania is considering regulating milk donations to ban unsafe practices. A bill approved 191-1 in the state House prohibits the sale of human milk by any entity not licensed by the state Department of Health. The legislation sets standards for screening donors and requires licensed milk banks to follow policies set by professional associations or the law. The bill now goes to the Senate. Rhode Island Providence: A priest is asking parishioners not to leave his church over a tweet by Rhode Island’s bishop urging Roman Catholics to not support or attend LGBTQ Pride Month events. The Rev. Edward L. Pieroni begged gay and lesbian parishioners not to leave the church. “A lot of people have hung in there, but it’s like, ‘One more slap and we are done.’ I am here to beg you – and I will get on my hands and knees and beg you – not to leave,” Pieroni told the congregation at St. Raymond’s Roman Catholic Church. South Carolina Columbia: The Five Points post office in Columbia will no longer allow homeless to sleep inside overnight. Postal employee Leslie Jones says people who stayed inside the post office have been “urinating, defecating, naked” and that vandalism has been a problem. South Dakota
The Red Ribbon Skirt Society in Rapid City, S.D., wants to raise awareness about the deaths and disappearances of indigenous women, children, two-spirited and transgender people. (Photo: Adam Fondren/Rapid City Journal via AP) Rapid City: The Red Ribbon Skirt Society has dedicated space inside an arts center for the communities and families of missing and murdered Native American women. The Rapid City group opened a healing center at the Racing Magpie in March. The organization wants to raise awareness about the deaths and disappearances of indigenous women, children, two-spirited (members of the LGBTQ community and others) and transgender people. Tennessee Nashville: A legislative appointee of Republican state House speaker Glen Casada says public education is a “satanic system” and calls President Donald Trump and Pope Francis “anti-Christs.” WTVF-TV reports research analyst Scott Alan Buss said in a 2015 blog post that Christians who teach in public schools are “modeling a satanic approach to the pursuit of knowledge.” Buss also said in an online video an education system built on that approach “cannot be repaired. … It has to be torn down.” House Democratic leader Mike Stewart calls the hiring of Buss “extraordinarily disappointing, but unfortunately not surprising.” Texas Killeen: Fort Hood’s famous “hug lady” will have a room named after her at the terminal where she hugged thousands of soldiers deploying to war zones. The Killeen Daily Herald reports that Elizabeth Laird will be honored inside the air terminal at Fort Hood, the U.S. Army post that’s one of the largest military bases in the world. Laird died in December 2015 at 83. A recent online petition to rename the air terminal after Laird had surpassed 74,000 signatures. Utah Provo: Starbucks will open its first stand-alone shop in Provo near Mormon-owned Brigham Young University next spring. Students are taught as part of the Utah-based religion’s health code to avoid coffee and tea. Residents reacted to the announcement on social media with mixed feelings ranging from shock to excitement. Some local coffee shop owners said they welcomed the addition and weren’t too concerned about the new competition. Vermont
Devin Colman of the Vermont Division of Historic Preservation and Janie Cohen, director of the Fleming Museum at the University of Vermont, look at a painting of a prominent Lake Champlain geological formation Tuesday. (Photo: Wilson Ring / AP) Burlington: A painting of a prominent Lake Champlain geological formation commissioned as part of a New Deal program in the 1930s but hidden behind a wall at the University of Vermont for almost three decades is getting a new chance at public life. Construction workers renovating a building used by UVM’s engineering department discovered the painting last week. The painting was walled in during a renovation in the early 1990s because there was no money to move it. The geological formation, known locally as Lone Rock Point, helps define Burlington’s waterfront by marking the northern boundary of the bay that includes the waterfront park, public beach, pedestrian path, ferry docks and marinas. Virginia
Maggie Martino, 13, underwent a leg amputation in February. Now the Virginia girl is working to raise awareness about limb loss. (Photo: Maggie Martino) Staunton: So far this year, Maggie Martino, 13, has coordinated a fundraiser at her school, donated money to the University of Virginia Children’s Hospital, set up book donations to middle schools and encouraged Augusta County to support Limb Loss Awareness Month – all while recovering from a leg amputation in February. The Beverley Manor Middle School student lost her leg following complications from a rare congenital disorder called Parkes Weber syndrome. “It’s been unbelievable how much support and kindness [people] have shown,” says Amber Martino, Maggie’s mom. Washington Yakima: A new report finds there are 56 missing American Indian women in the state, with 20 of those from Yakima County and 12 from King County. The 36-page report to the Legislature was compiled by Washington State Patrol Capt. Monica Alexander. Yakama Nation activist Emily Washines says it’s heartbreaking that nearly half of Washington state’s missing Native women cases were in Yakima County. West Virginia Charleston: Gov. Jim Justice is unveiling an advertising campaign to promote the state nationwide. A year ago, the state started an advertising push using John Denver’s iconic song “Take Me Home, Country Roads.” That campaign targeted regional out-of-state markets from Cleveland to Charlotte, North Carolina. Justice has a postgraduate degree in marketing and advertising. One of his 2016 campaign themes was to make the state a tourist mecca in hopes of creating thousands of jobs. Wisconsin Janesville: Wisconsin-based Bliss Communications will sell its daily newspapers – The Gazette in Janesville and The EagleHerald in Marinette – to Adams Publishing Group in mid-June. Also included are weekly community papers, associated websites and the company’s printing and production facility in Janesville. It will also sell three Janesville radio stations owned by a subsidiary to Ben Thompson, CEO of Big Radio. The Janesville Gazette reports both organizations intend to retain all Bliss employees. Wyoming Cheyenne: The renovated state Capitol will reopen to the public on July 10, which is Wyoming Statehood Day and 130 years after the building first opened. The $300 million renovation of the Capitol and other buildings around it includes replacing outdated building systems, adding safety infrastructure and creating larger meeting rooms.

LakFood

LakFood | Eat the World NYC 05 June 2019 MALDIVES 🇲🇻 SRI LANKA 🇱🇰 Through enough contact with Sri Lankan cuisines, and sometimes those of southern Indian states, a crucial ingredient always seems to be Maldive fish. Without doing the proper preparations, one might wander in and look for this over ice or in the freezer, but recently it was stumbled upon on the shelves of a Sri Lankan grocery store just off of Hillside Avenue in Jamaica, Queens a bit beyond the final stop of the F train. This is its natural state, for tradition dictates that the flesh of the fish, in this case skipjack tuna, is smoked and dried by the sun before being cut into small pieces. This manner of preparation allows the small pieces to retain a very long shelf life and was used long before there was electricity. The “chips” actually come out of the jar looking like small wood chips (below), and are certainly not meant for satisfying a late night snack crave. In the cuisines of the Maldives and Sri Lanka, the Maldive fish is used similarly to how dried shrimp paste is used from Myanmar to Malaysia, as a concentrated base of taste. A typical purchase (somewhere near the Indian Ocean, but not in Queens) would usually be a large filet that has been smoked and sun dried whole, taken home like a piece of wood, and then broken apart as needed in the kitchen. In addition to these, LakFood stocks an array of other ingredients necessary for any Sri Lankan kitchen, as well as some homemade foods brought in on weekends. Since this visit took place on a Saturday, a case full fried fish and vegetable cutlets (rolls) were inviting, as well as the onion ( seeni sambol ) or fish filled triangular buns (below). Inside the seeni sambol bun. In front of this case were single portions of lamprais , string hoppers , and chicken curry , all made in the same home and only available on Saturday and Sunday. A roam through the three aisles here is also fun, many dried goods share the shelves with bottles of liquids and the refrigerators are full of plenty to explore. The spicy cocktail snack below was delicious, full of what you might expect from looking at it, but also with chewy sweet raisins to counteract the good heat it brings. The only disappointment of the day. 🇲🇻 🇲🇻 🇲🇻 🇱🇰 🇱🇰 🇱🇰

Must-have courses on your wedding day

Share C ourse through your wedding ceremonies with an assortment of delicacies concocted especially for the big day
As Indian weddings have evolved with time so has the cuisine. Chefs Lakhani and Dhopatkar share, “Any new beginning, especially something as ceremonial as weddings, begins with a sweet. With changing times, the traditional mithais have undergone a transformation leading to the creation of artisanal mithais.” PHOTO: GETTY IMAGES
There are plenty of customs that involve food, as Agrawal throws light on some of them, “The bride throws kheelat her vidai; chane ki dal and gudare served to the horse at the ghudchadhi; milk, sarson ka teland black til are used in the traditional games that are played after the wedding; haldi, milk and honey are seen at the haldi and the sajan kot, wherein the girl’s family serves food to the boy’s family.”
Chef Chopra adds, “When the bride enters her in-laws’ house for the first time, paan leaves, beetle nuts, rice and kumkum are used in the ceremony. In some instances, mustard oil is poured on the door posts before she enters the house.” PHOTO: ARQ MITHAI
Shilpa Rohera and Sonika Advani, directors at Shilpa & Sonika—Events and Wedding Planning, suggest treating your guests to an all-round experience. This requires syncing the menu to the celebration—specific to that community—décor and theme.
Darshan Shroff, Founder, Momente Wedding Planners, advises: “Food served at pre-wedding ceremonies should always be light and non-messy because guests prefer to keep their hands clean. Post-wedding dining should comprise a sit-down meal as the celebrations might be tiring for many guests.”

High On Solvang

You are at: Home » Blog » High on Solvang High on Solvang New Spear Vineyards & Winery. (P hoto by Jeremy Ball) By Benjamin Epstein.
You can still visit the little Mermaid Fountain and giant red clog. You can sample aebleskiver at several bakeries. Visitors with a literary bent take in the Hans Christian Andersen museum. That much hasn’t changed in Solvang, the Danish-American enclave founded in 1911, deemed one of USA Today’s top 10 historic small towns in America.
What has changed in the 21st century is that the Disneyesque town finds itself in the middle of the wine-centric Santa Ynez Valley; there are now 20 tasting rooms in downtown Solvang. And what’s changed in the last three years is the emergence of high-end hotels and restaurants that aren’t necessarily Danish but that satisfy a more sophisticated breed of visitor that uses Solvang as a springboard for visits to the region’s renowned wineries.
Danish, French and American flags greet guests at the Mirabelle Inn. Within its half-timbered architecture is a soaring lobby suggesting the tiered marzipan cake kransekage. Above the lobby are boutique-y suites on multiple split stories, some with whirlpool tubs, most with fireplaces. The final flight of stairs leads to an airy attic suite complete with chess table.
Flanking the lobby is extraordinary First & Oak restaurant. Chef Jj Guerrero and sommelier Jonathan Rosenson—whose family owns the hotel—present a three-, four or five-course personal tasting menu. Highlights among the meticulously conceived and executed dishes recently included sous-vide Kurobuta pork belly with grape gastrique and fennel four ways, and unforgettable rosettes of Tête de Moine cheese with plumped raisins, caramelized cauliflower and burnt toast.
Chef Pink DeLongpre, who competed on Food Network’s Cutthroat Kitchen, has reinvigorated Root 246 since taking the helm in 2017. She goes for flavor explosions, her Niman Ranch pork osso bucco—with baby Japanese turnips, preserved lemon and prune gremolata, the prunes rehydrated in Earl Grey tea and Armagnac— a prime example. Ice cream sandwiches are also larger than life.
The restaurant and the chic hotel it inhabits, Corque—get it?—are owned by the Santa Ynez Band of Chumash Indians. On the list is a spectrum of impressive Kitá Wines, made by Tara Gomez, a member of that group.
Among other options, the Landsby boutique hotel opened in 2016; its Mad & Vin offers wine-country cuisine. New restaurants not connected to hotels include Toscana, for Italian, and Cal-French bistro Hill Haven Provisions. Owner-winemakers Dana Volk and Felipe Hernandez enhance the tasting-room scene with Dana V Wines and Feliz Noche Cellars, respectively.
There are performing-arts attractions as well. Upcoming productions at the outdoor Solvang Festival Theater include A Gentleman’s Guide to Love and Murder June 13-30. The Under the Oaks jazz series begins June 16 with Grammy-winning Mads Tolling & the Mads Men. Side Trip
Lompoc is the self-described City of Arts and Flowers.
More than 40 murals on street corners, in alleys and on buildings in Old Town and elsewhere—a citywide outdoor gallery—bring to life local heritage. Actress Julia Louis-Dreyfus and her husband, director Brad Hall, jump-started the effort to restore and reopen the Lompoc Theatre, which operated from 1927 to 1975. Flower fields to the west are ablaze with larkspur, delphinium and Queen Anne’s lace through September.
Western gateway to the Sta. Rita Hills wine appellation, Lompoc boasts the largest concentration of premier small-production wineries in Santa Barbara County. In town, James Sparks makes chardonnay, pinot noir and grenache with an Old World bent at Liquid Farm and Kings Carey. Find more than 20 other tasting rooms in an industrial setting at the Wine Ghetto
Kathleen Gaffney is the brilliant young winemaker at new Spear Vineyards & Winery; the family-owned, certified organic operation has a spectacular tasting room midway between Solvang and Lompoc. Before setting out, pick up a basket from superb Cailloux Cheese, opening presently in Solvang, and enjoy it at the Spear picnic table overlooking the valley.

On Michelin-starred budget trail in Singapore

June 05, 2019 15:09 15:09 IST more-in Four meals in Singapore that serve a variety of textures, flavours and memories
‘Chicken rice is so fragrant and delicious that it can be eaten on its own’, a quote attributed to Anthony Bourdain alongside a life-size picture of his, is plastered on the front of the food stall. As I take in the aromas and the splash of colour, I notice his face all over Singapore’s Maxwell Food Centre. Home to the Tian Tian Hainanese Chicken Rice stall, Maxwell has become a must-do destination for food lovers visiting Singapore.
While most Indian travellers think of Singapore as a quick shopping or a child-friendly destination, there’s an integral part of the Singapore experience that many miss out on — food. With 39 Michelin-starred restaurants, the city-state is a gastro-tourist’s heaven. While Singapore holds the world record for most restaurants per square kilometre, Singapore’s ‘real’ food scene can only be experienced at its many hawker centres. It’s not uncommon to have tourists and locals share a table laden with Chinese chicken rice, Indian biryani and Malay satay . Food central
On a weekend trip, I decided to eat my way through various hawker stalls and find out for myself. A short walk from my hotel, is Chinatown’s Maxwell Food Centre. I joined a long queue of hungry locals for a plate piled with boiled chicken over a mound of rice cooked in chicken broth and a small dipping bowl of chilli sauce infused with chicken again. This might sound bland, but Tian Tian is one of the most popular destinations for Singapore’s national dish — Hainanese Chicken Rice. This Michelin-rated hawker stall has received praise from Gordon Ramsay and Anthony Bourdain.
The following morning, I returned to Maxwell for breakfast and headed to the Fuzhou Oyster Cake stall. Started by Madam Pang in 1962, the stall sells only the batter-fried snack of oysters, peanuts and mince. It’s a rare delicacy and can be found in only a couple of places, as Fuzhou cuisine is disappearing from the streets of Singapore.
I picked up some kuih bingka ubi (steamed tapioca cakes with coconut and sugar) from Xing Xing Ondeh Ondeh and grabbed a coffee. As I meandered out, Weng Pancake caught my eye, and I indulged myself with a min jiang kueh , a peanut pancake best known to Hokkien cuisine. The pancake has green bean, red bean and coconut fillings, apart from peanuts and a strong fragrance of pandan essence.
For a late lunch, I headed to Lau Pa Sat, the grande dame of Singaporean markets. Seng Kee Local Delights’ perfectly balanced spicy and aromatic laksa was worth braving a tropical thundershower for. At one of the many communal tables, I happily slurped down the thick concoction of coconut milk, chilli, dried shrimp and herbs.
There’s no better way to dry off than shopping, and that’s how I spent the rest of my afternoon. I grabbed an early evening snack of chicken and prawn satay — dipped in delicious, thick peanut sauce — at East Coast Lagoon Food Village. I headed back to the hotel to freshen up for one last evening of indulgence.
Newton Circus is one of the city’s oldest and arguably the most touristy and expensive of Singapore’s food centres; it boasts a range of food you won’t see anywhere else. The oyster omelette, locally known as orh luak , has new-found celebrity status after it was featured in the film, Crazy Rich Asians , and I headed straight to Hup Kee, one of the better rated stalls for the dish. After braving a line of 20 people and a grumpy owner, I was handed a plate that had sunset yellow and white in parts with some deep red dipping sauce. This omelette differs from its contemporaries around the globe, in that it isn’t beaten before it hits the pan. The end result is a crispy texture with different tastes of egg yolk and egg white in every bite, and a deep umami after-taste released by the oysters. Grand finale
There’s only so much one can eat alone, and after a long debate with myself, I decided to splurge a little on the sambal stingray at Alliance Seafood, one of the biggest food stalls in Singapore. The stingrays are priced between SGD12 (₹610) and SGD20 (₹1,015), and I picked the smallest I could find while I settled down with a bottle of Tiger beer.
Barbecued to perfection, the stingray was served drenched in spicy sambal (red chillies, shrimp paste, lime juice, fish sauce). This one’s not for the faint-hearted. As I cabbed it back to the airport the next morning, I couldn’t help but think that four meals in Singapore just aren’t enough. I still had places to go, and things to eat. For those of you who have more time to spend, check Michelin’s Bib Gourmand selection that lists 50 street eateries and small restaurants — it’s enough to keep you well-fed for a month.
