From my heart

Indian cuisine has always been famous the world over. We continuously see the innovation brought about by the huge foodie population in the country. While there has been a big growth for a lot of professional cooks and a number of them have earned their name through the world, there have been really no media or platform available for the amateur cooks to show their skills. Keeping this requirement from a huge population in mind, Famebox Webchef have come up with a very innovative idea to find the best amateur cook in India. The winner gets a chance to win INR 100,000 and host an exclusive Youtube channel under the Famebox network and become the next webstar. I got a chance to review a few entries submitted by these wonderful and innovative aspirants for this Famebox Webchef contest and I must say it is very encouraging to see the entries and I appreciate the effort that has gone into making it. To call out one of the entries, Madhushree R Rao made Prawns Green Masala Konkani style, I liked the way she has presented the full video recipe in a concise format, right from the ingredients to the main steps in the preparation of the dish. It is a simple recipe made with coriander, green chilies, grated coconut, zeera, ginger, garlic and prawns. I'm now too tempted to try this recipe myself at home and I'm sure it will turn out good. She also presented the dish nicely on the table and had her mom taste it. I wish her all the best to win this contest. Here is a link to her video. I see this social platform as a great idea to bring out the best from the amateur cooks in India. Do you think you are a great cook and want to showcase your skills? Then Famebox Webchef is the right platform for you. You can easily submit your video of cooking a dish online. The instructions on upload are also available online on Famebox Webchef website.

  • The Saffron Vanilla Snickerdoodle Cookies sold at Blue Bottle Coffee are a favorite of mine. I like to sit in the sun on the beautiful stone slab benches across from the Blue Bottle Coffee kiosk in Hayes Valley, San Francisco with a macchiato a snickerdoodle to share. This, the first Blue Bottle Coffee location, is just a short walk from my house in an alleyway. A not-so-secret spot, slightly off the main strip – source of excellent coffee and cookies! I also love to have lazy breakfasts beneath the tall ceilings, light streaking through the massive windows, in their cafe at Mint Plaza. I’ve known there was a Blue Bottle Coffee book in the works, and each time I go, I find myself uttering the same nine words, usually with my mouth full – I really hope this recipe is in the book. In addition to their coffee, which I’m more than happy to brave a line for, I have a list of go-to favorites from their beautifully concise and inspired menu. My hope was that all would be in the book: these Saffron-Vanilla Snickerdoodles, the Pickled Fennel Egg Salad, the Sesame Absinthe Cigars, and Catalan Eggs with Braised Greens. Check, check, check, and check! Every one is in the book. And like all things Blue Bottle, this is worth the wait. The Best Snickerdoodle Cookies The book will be released October 9th (I originally posted this in 2012), but I’ve been hassling Ten Speed to get me an early copy for months. In part because I wanted to bump up my coffee know-how, but (no surprise) I was particularly excited about the recipes – the Saffron Vanilla Snickerdoodle Cookies were first up. In contrast to traditional snickerdoodles, Caitlin describes them as having “an unusual butterscotch flavor from the combination of saffron, brown sugar and vanilla.” If you love snickerdoodles, please try these! Now, I know these cookies well, and this recipe delivered a version that is a dead-ringer of the original. The same as the ones I would buy at the kiosk – buckle in the middle, kiss of saffron, a thin golden crust that gives way to a fudge-textured center. Thank you. Arguably the best snickerdoodle cookies I’ve ever had. I made a double batch for a family trip to Lake Tahoe last week – baking half for the drive there, freezing the remaining pre-scooped dough to bake at the cabin. Everyone loved them. I hope you like these as much as I do, make a double batch and freeze half of the pre-scooped dough for later baking. And be sure to measure the saffron carefully -it’s easy to go too light/heavy. xo -h Continue reading Saffron Vanilla Snickerdoodle Cookies on 101 Cookbooks
